1937 Aston Martin 15/98

For the first time in over 45 years this Aston Martin is on its wheels on the ground, ready to roll.

I have been working on the rebuild of this car for about the past two years. It arrived as a dismantled collection of lightly decayed parts and has been a full size jigsaw puzzle/ Airfix kit!

Right from the outset the car has been assembled on waist high trestles. I was not expecting the very low stance that faced me when I dropped it on to its wheels last week. The chassis is underslung, ie below the rear axle, hence the Kart like height!

This has been a great project and helped by the fact that the owner has been such a brilliant customer.
