Classic Car Overview

This 1984 Aston Martin V8 Volante Convertible is an outstanding original car with gorgeous special order color combination ofPortland Blue overBurgundy leather! Only 3,800 miles from new surviving with the original, southernFlorida owner for the first 25 years! Fully serviced by Aston Martin specialist Long Island Sports Cars just recently! Ready to enjoy and show! Great future investment! 1984 Aston Martin V8 Volante Convertible Background: Aston Martin introduced the V8 platform in the early 1960s to be more competitive against its rivals. By 1978, it became obvious to Aston Martin that the United States consumers were eager to have convertible sports cars, a body style long aborted by many US manufacturers due to enhanced safety regulations. This spurred the introduction of the Volante Convertible, which was hand built for 12 years, ending in 1990. Only 650 units would be produced, equaling about 50 production cars a year, just one per week. Constructed of an aluminum body and reinforced steel frame, it was said to near equal in weight to its coupe counterpart. Returning to the interior for the first time in two decades would be a burled wood dash and trim veneer to enhance the luxury feel, along with new power-operated features like outside mirrors and folding soft top. The suspension was enhanced to become a solid, road-hugging sports car utilizing coil spring Koni shocks up front, anti-sway bar with twin wishbone control arms, and coil-over rear suspension with Watts linkage and lever-action shocks. Four-wheel servo-assisted Girling disc brakes can be found at all four corners! A delightful car to drive, both for its performance and quality ride! 1984 Aston Martin V8 Volante Convertible Info: Offered here is a 1984 Aston Martin V8 Volante Convertible finished in special ordered Portland Blue with matching soft top with a stunning Burgundy leather interior! Powered by its numbers matching 326ci 5.3L V8 fitted with four Weber twin-choke downdraft carburetors to produce 320 horsepower through a Torqueflite 3-speed automatic transmission! Features include factory air conditioning, Adwest power rack & pinion steering, power windows, power locks, power mirrors, Smiths instrumentation, Kienzle quartz clock, intermittent wipers, seat headrest pads, leather-wrapped steering wheel, Blaupunkt Washington SQR32 AM/FM/Cassette radio, passenger vanity mirror, Cibie Oscar fog lamps, and more! This example was built June 1984 being special ordered for its original West Palm Beach, FL owner. It stayed it his possession, used only sparingly, for the next 25 years. It then sold to New York collector and sports car enthusiast Daniel Zarr who immediately had the car inspected and serviced by Aston Martin authorized Long Island Sports Cars based in Roslyn, NY. Upon arrival, it was recommended to fully clean and rebuild the entire fuel delivery system to ensure it was clean and free of deteriorated fuel and any contamination. The fuel tank was removed, cleaned & reinstalled with fresh hardware, fuel pump & bracket, filler neck & cap, new sending unit & gasket, rollover valve & gasket, and vapor tube. Then, all four Weber carburetors were disassembled, fully cleaned all jets & passageways, and rebuilt with new gaskets & seals, and fully tuned with a gas analyzer to set correct fuel mixtures to factory specifications balancing all carburetors equally. The transmission received a fresh pan gasket and all new fluid. The entire cooling system was flushed multiple times including the block and reservoir to ensure it was totally clean. The water pump was replaced for good measure, with thermostat & gasket, all coolant hoses & clamps, and filled with fresh coolant. The ignition system was next and treated to all new components including spark plugs, factory plug wires, distributor cap, rotor, timing set, all new drive belts, new air filter element, and 20W-50 engine oil and DOT4 brake fluid. The original tires from 1984 were replaced for new, period correct Avon Turbosteel Radials measuring 235/70R15. It had 3,485 miles when all this was completed in October 2014, and driven just 400 miles since! It has been fully tested and continues to operate as new without fault. All features and creature comforts are working properly. This includes the air conditioning system. It continues to represent as new throughout and retains all original stickers, factory markings, body tags and identification proving to be a remarkable time capsule! A true survivor from the last of the carbureted Aston Martins ever built! Included with the car will be a storage car cover and literature from the Aston Martin registry pamphlet.
