Aston Martin DBS AM Vantage for sale
This is a very rare model of Aston Martin that not many people know about. It was in 1972 when Aston discovered that they had 70 units of the old 4l six cylinder engines sitting in the back. And since two years they had been using the V8 for the DBS. So these Tadek Marek designed 6 cyl engines were fitted in DBS V8 bodies with some smaller modifications such as chrome spoke wheels and low air intake on the hood.
Exterior: Still in first paint! Yes, it is showing some age, but it is only original once! Original chrome spoke wheels in good condition. All chrome parts in very good condition except the rear bumper that has some surface rust. The name of this original Aston Martin colour is “Old Pewter”.
Interior: All original, beige leather, carpets etc. in wonderful condition. Nothing was ever touched or tampered with; original radio is also with the car. Equipped with original Webasto sunroof. It has all original tools, tool case, and spare wheel. It looks like the time stood still inside this car.
Engine: Runs well. Work done recently: Full service replacing all fluids, filters etc. New brake hoses all around. New stainless exhaust fitted and a new aluminium fuel tank from U.K. Yes it does have automatic gearbox! Not so sporty you are thinking right now. But I am sorry, the Aston Martin DBS is not a sportscar! It is more like a Rolls Royce in a coupe format. It is a soft and super comfortable car, and for that reason I would have to say I like the automatic gearbox. And in a right hand drive car I could not live with shifting gears with my left hand.
History: Sold new in U.K. and then bought by a Swede in the 80s who then registered the car in Germany since he was working there at the time. Previous owner had the car for 40 years. There is a large history file with wonderful letters between the owner and Aston Martin. Some documents confirming the technical details of the used for the registration in Germany and it is still today under German registration. There is the original instruction book and the service book, and also some MOT documents from U.K. and Germany. It is all collected in a binder together with the receipts of all parts and labour that has gone in to this car. There is also a Aston Martin DBS workshop manual. If you have a vintage Aston Martin and would like to sell your car please do contact me. We would be interested in models like DB2, DB3, DB4, DB5, DB6, DBS, V8 Vantage and more. This car is actually very similar looking to the one used in the last James Bond movie. Other Aston Martin cars can be seen on our movie page here
