This number still applies to the car today. Supplied by Cyril Williams LTD, Wolverhampton and built to order for a Mr Hunt. The car was built to Vantage spec and fitted with heated rear window, chrome wire wheels and Motorola radio with electric aerial. The car stayed in Mr Hunts ownership for the next 6 years before two further owners were added, the third owner was a Mr Stanley who acquired the car June 1975 and took it to Scotland where it was driven into his garage to lay dormant for the next 40 years. To find a car is this state makes it the ultimate barn find project. It was sourced and supplied by Aston Martin Works Services and taken back to where it all started.
