When a Heritage Aston Martin comes to Aston Martin Works, we think of it as coming home to the Newport Pagnell factory. 4,500 man hours ensures that the car is prepared for the next chapter of its life and for the requirements of modern driving, whilst above all else retaining the very essence of the car – its originality.
To preserve as much of the original car as possible each component part is disassembled and stripped of paint and any corrosion. In their barest form the components are graded into that which can be retained, refurbished, or requires replacing.
Testament to the seamless blend of old and new technologies and methods employed, a restored chassis will be sand blasted and powder coated providing additional corrosion protection, whilst aluminium body panels will be hand formed or repaired, utilising the same skills as when the cars were first crafted. The latest paint technology will be applied for an improved finish with increased durability and the interior trim is hand-crafted using the finest authentic materials.
Whether restored to pure original specification or tailored to individual taste, Aston Martin Works ensures provenance from the traditional skills passed down from generations in the same workshops where the cars were originally made.
