Further Information

According to the copy guarantee form on file, left-hand drive chassis number '266/L' was sold new via Patthey, the Swiss Aston Martin agent, to Mr Robert Firmenich of Geneva. The car was supplied with fully chromed road wheels and a heated rear light (screen) and left the factory finished in Desert White with black Connolly leather interior. Other documentation consists of copies of previous Swiss and German registration documents and the copy invoice relating to its sale between E Thiesen to Axel Schütte Klassische Automobile in March 2008. With Weber carburettors, drilled pedals, no bumpers and tow-eyelets, it would appear 266/L enjoyed an element of competitive use with a former owner.
