Williams, LTD. To 7.0 Liter/500+bhp Big Bore specification. Built in December 1978, this V8 Volante was originally sold by Hollywood Sports Cars and registered to its first owner, Mr. Dean Martin. This V8 has always seen exceptional care throughout its life. In the early 1990s, this V8 was purchased by Mr. Silas M. Ford III through Steel Wings in Pennsylvania. During Mr. Fords ownership, the V8 was well cared for and previously serviced by Autosport Designs. In 2003, the V8 was restored by R.S. Williams, LTD in the UK in which the engine was uprated to its 7.0 liter specification. With further previous servicing by Vantage Motors in CT, this V8 has seen single exceptional ownership since 1993. On a recent road test, it has ample horsepower (over 500bhp) and torque which is well suited to the automatic transmission. It is powerful on the open road, yet docile around town and will not disappoint in any way. This V8 includes its instruction manual, tools, jack and spare wheel, service records and build sheet. It is without a doubt one of the finest example of its kind in the world today and surely with excellent provenance from new.
