    I spoke to a chap at the NEC last year who had his Aston done and I sure he said it was about 1500. Some of the Vinyl's available means you can have anything you want. Your imagination is your only limit.

    Hi Steve

    Yep thanks for that. Came across it on the 75 and Zt owners club website, surprised it wasn't here?

    And i know i'm being very picky, but hey i'd like my dream car to be spot on and the Royal Blue is very dark, almost black,.

    So what I really want is Atmosphere, Aurora, Bitter Sweet, Caledonian, Chagall, Firefrost Red, Ignition Blue (Mica?), Mirage, Nocturne, Poseidon, Shot Silk, Spectre, Trophy blue, Twilight, Typhoon, Moonshine as top of the list.


    Or as close second choices Celestial, Copperleaf Red, Garnet, Moody Blue, Ski Blue.


    Once after searching and maybe not finding the right one for sale it will be pretty much any colour, but this ones probably a little to much of a compromise to early in the process.


    But I may have changed my mind next week, lol.

    Cheers

    Keith

    It was in fact posted by the seller in 'Cars For Sale' here too, also late yesterday evening, and I added it to the 'Complete List of 260s For Sale' summary thread early this morning. You must have overlooked it, I guess?

    No matter; it is still Royal Blue ! Looks a very nice car I must admit though, although I haven't seen it 'in the flesh'.

    You will have to be very patient. According to how many left there are only about 40 V8 Estate left on the UK roads and if you are picky about the thee color you might have a long wait. I spent a year looking for mine.

    Good luck

    Not sure if Steve's number of 40 may be a bit pessimistic.

    I checked through members who have been actively posting on the Forum in the last year, for whom the car's VIN has been made public in a post or in the 'About Me'. I come up with 40 ZT-T owners (UK), making sure that I threw out any duplicates, such as the same car changing hands in the last year (... one of these days I'll get a life ).

    Point is, that there must be more cars from owners who haven't posted on the Forum in the last year, or having owners who are not and never have been members at all, I would think ?

    I'll check the S/C cars if I can, but that information is a bit sketchier, and what there is, probably rather unreliable.

    Still not much choice when you are being colour specific, personally I would be looking at condition and mileage.

    As I said earlier I looked for a year before I struck lucky, I found a couple for sale in that time but one was in one of the biometric colours that needed some paint work and the second was for sale by the chap in the New Forest and when I turned up to take it for a test drive a couple of days after I had spoken to him he had sold it. He had not rung even though he said he would. An afternoon waisted.
