The Aston Martin Heritage Trust Archive, managed by our full time Collections Manager John Wood, is the largest collection of Aston Martin records and images in the world. It is the official archive of Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd and the Aston Martin Owners Club.
We can supply images for commercial or private use as well as conducting research through our records and providing copies of archive documents.
The core of the photograph collection centres around three significant photographic collections. Legendary photographer Louis Klemantaski (1940s - 1950s), AML Historian Roger Stowers (1970s - 1990s) and Neill Bruce, professional Automotive photographer.
Photo Prints will vary according to size and commercial scale of charges depend on use and reproduction volume.
Research and Documents
We are here to help the current custodian of any Aston Martin with caring for your car. We will answer simple queries as soon as possible, however more involved research may take time and for this we charge for our time, regardless of whether we find anything or not.
Heritage Certificates and Service Records (Build Sheets), the perfect addition to any car history file.
Copies and Duplicates
The AMHT is recognised by the DVLA as the authority for authenticating requests for registering cars or re-allocation of original registration numbers to Aston Martin and post 1961 Lagonda cars.
email@example.com The AMHT will supply a letter to your local Vehicle Licensing Office (VLO) indicating the year of manufacture of a particular car to allow an age related registration number to be issued where none existed before, or where there is insufficient supporting evidence for the re-issue of a number believed to be the original.
You initiate this process yourself by completing the appropriate forms, the V765 and V55/5. These are available from your nearest VLO. The V765 may also be downloaded from the DVLA website. You will then need to send these forms, along with a recent photograph of the vehicle and documentary evidence, such as the original log book, a copy of the original factory record (Build Sheet), a pre 1983 tax disc or MOT certificate, linking it to the original registration number. We may also wish to inspect the car. We will then send the endorsed application to the DVLA for processing.
