Background

Background:

Announced in April 1972, the AM V8 is an extensively modified version of the DBS V8 which was announced in September 1969. Externally, the grill was entirely new, no longer sweeping across the complete front but now tailored between the head lamps reminiscent of the earlier six cylinder models such as the DB3S. The engine, was by then the well tried and tested all alloy V8 designed by Tadek Marek that had made its first appearance in January 1967 at the Racing Car Show in London and raced by Lola in their Type 70 Mk III GT.

The AM V8 series III was introduced in London, August 1973. The important mechanical difference was the replacement of the Bosch fuel injection system by four twin-choke down draught Weber carburettors, which produced a notably smother performance at low engine speeds with greater flexibility. To accommodate the carburettors, the bonnet bulge had to be deepened slightly and it was continued as a low bulge, to the trailing edge. Improvements were also made to water, oil and automatic transmission cooling and a new insulation material was used for the engine bulkhead and under the bonnet. There are detailed improvements inside the car, revised front seats; passenger’s door locked, electrically, from driver’s side; revised switches and heating controls: fuses below the glove compartment; larger ashtray; fuel tank redesigned to increase luggage space. The Autocar road test (September 6th 1973) of a car with automatic transmission, gave 0 to 60 m.p.h. in 6.2 seconds and a maximum 146 m.p.h.

Summary

The “S” specification Series III V8 has long been sought after – this example is exceptional.

Presented with a rare, factory specified sliding sun roof and with a maintenance history of substance and quality, she is not just a good car – she’s a great car.

Vehicle History

A copy of the original build sheet for this exceptional car notes that it was delivered to GKN Group Services on 23rd August 1977 under the registration number TYE 762 S. The specification of the car included a sliding sun roof and its livery was Kentucky Blue with Burgundy trim.

Whilst there is a comprehensive service record for the car since the late eighties, the only trace of the ownership history since GKN is by tracking the invoices – so in 1989, a Mr Bertram of Newcastle upon Tyne was the owner and the car stayed in the North East with the transfer to a Mr Tomes in Durham. The car then came a long way south coming under the stewardship of a Mr Cameron of Wallington in Surrey and it remained in the area South of London when it was acquired by a Peter Roberson of Coulsdon in November 1998.

The final transfer was under the auspices of a dealer in March 2001, Supersport Prestige & Performance Cars sold the car to the Kent based, current owner. That leaves three unaccounted for owners from the eighties but what should give any prospective owner of this car a nice warm feeling is the supporting MOT history that offers evidence of a steady mileage progression.

To support that, it is clear from the substantial sheaf of invoices that each of the owners recorded above invested in the car – none more so than the current owner. Those essential chassis, floor, jacking points, outriggers and sill issues were attended to when the car got its new Rolls Royce Peacock Blue livery and then later the engine was comprehensively rebuilt. As well as the invoices, there is a comprehensive photographic record of that work.
