The Classic Aston Martin Vantage refurbishment

The Classic Aston Martin Vantage refurbishment


Our Vantage came to us as a basket case in November 2017, it was mid way through a conversion to become a racing car which started in 2009.

First of all we collected the car on a trailer and filled our van to the brim with boxes of the original bits removed from the car. All of the bodywork and chassis had been refurbished and modified to suit its intended life as a race car.

After the Christmas break work started in earnest. We set about removing all of the modified bits and putting it back to road specification.

At the end of February the car went off to have its body work prepared for paint, this 15 day process involved levelling every inch of the cars exterior to make it smooth and ready for top coat.

On its return we did a final fit up before painting the car ourselves into the stunning blue it is now.

By now it was getting close to our July deadline, so much midnight oil was burnt to finish the car.

A few glitches on its shake down took us into August before it was fit to go live.

The final result was worth all of the hard work, here she is. Our fully restored classic 70s Aston Martin Vantage, if you would like the opportunity to drive this beautiful James Bond favourite click here and take a look at our Aston driving experience today.
