It was in 2009, JWA Classic did not exist yet. I had just retired and decided to finance a young entrepreneur who wanted to start restoring classic cars. Personally, I had never been interested in classic cars. I put my trust in a broker who convinced me that the purchase of the Aston Martin KO84 could be a good exercise for the workshop and a good investment.
He was right on the first point, but not on the second.
Today, JWA Classic has taken over from the restoration workshop and its main objective is now to gradually sell its cars. It is with this objective in mind that we have set up the soft auctions.
The Aston Martin KO84 is the first one to be put on sale in this way.
The car has had a number of owners, the most notable being the very first: John Cadbury in 1931. The documentation that accompanies the car is well provided. The history is almost complete.
The car has been restored to a high standard. A photographic file is available.
I personally enjoyed driving the KO84. And David, the JWA Classic mechanic, even more. He drove it in several rallies to accompany me. The car is equipped with an AC 2L engine but a vintage Aston Martin 1.5L engine (in parts) accompanies it.
We would be happy to sell it to a real enthusiast who will drive it for a long time to come and – maybe – restore it to its original condition.
