1969 Aston Martin DBS

From its hand-formed aluminium bodywork to its 4.0-litre Tadek Marek straight-six engine, the DBS is a proper Aston. Originally designed to replace the DB6, the two were actually produced side by side with the DBS being offered as a more grown up, smoother riding, more spacious alternative targeted at the US market (especially in V8 guise).

This car was treated to a light restoration four years ago, the car was given a full mechanical overhaul during the winter of 2016. That meant the engine and gearbox were removed with all gaskets, seals, and hoses replaced along with an engine flush. The automatic gearbox was also stripped, checked, and rebuilt. The car was also rewired and fitted with a new stereo.

Sold for £99,000
