Something Missing: 1972 Aston Martin V8


Barn Finds reader Michael M. sent in this interesting find from Melbourne, Australia. It’s a 1972 Aston Martin V8 that’s missing a few…well, a lot of body panels. It does, however, run and drive. What a go-kart! It’s up for sale here on CarandClassic for 24,990 British pounds. I can’t help but wonder what this would look like fitted with some version of Lotus Seven-like bodywork. It would be lighter than the original, that’s for sure. Even with right hand drive and an automatic, I think one could have some fun, don’t you? Let us know what you would do with this Aston Martin in the comments below!

    I’m more interested in the truck behind it. Or is it Ute?

    • Adrian Anderson

      The ute in the back ground is a Ford Falcon most likely an XR8

    If Bill Devin were still around, I’d have him provide one of his fits-any-chassis shells for this!

    The only part of the car that interests me is missing. They are good looking but the mechanicals…meh.
