Production of the V8 had been halted when Company Developments called in the receivers in late 1974 and did not recommence until 1976. One of the first jobs of the new owners was to thoroughly revise the V8 culminating in the car, code named ‘Oscar India’ or in old AMOC speak, the Series 4. The Oscar India was unveiled at the Birmingham International Motor Show in October 1978 (Oscar India = October Introduction, from the phonetic alphabet). Certainly, the car had become more refined and luxurious, automatic transmission was virtually standard – thus AML began calling it ‘The V8 saloon’.
Produced between 1978 and 1986, only 291 Oscar India V8’S were built with 224 of those being Right Hand Drive. The car we present to you today is from the second year of production and was supplied new via Zubair Enterprises, the Aston Martin agents of Oman.
Eventually returning to the UK, the car benefitted from a restoration by Marque specialists, including a full respray, re-trim and major mechanical work too, including a complete gearbox overhaul and a front brake upgrade, not to mention a new stainless steel exhaust.
We present to you today a wonderful Oscar India that surely cannot be missed, so make sure to come down and see this lovely Aston.
