Unfortunate and Unfinished #8211; Aston Martin DBS

Before was the modern DBS, the sporty of the V-12 DB9, we had a six-cylinder GT car was the successor to the DB6 as well as the last Martin built in the David (DB) era before the troubled was bought by Company Development, in 1972. The DBS was pretty much to the DB6 it replaced apart from the and the car actually sold alongside its for three years.

Today, it is pretty hard to see why was allowed to completely abandon the swept lines of the DB6 for the (by comparison) mediocrity of the DBS, but at the time it was styling and Aston was looking to go in a new Again, the 4.0 liter straight-six 325 horsepower in Vantage trim or 282 but the DBS had more room with full seats. The new car#8217;s features of course represented a departure for Aston Martin, but were features that continue onto the later of the #8217;70s and #8217;80s, meaning for many years Astons look more American than European GT.

In 1969 and after people got a little frustrated by the same in a heavier car, the DBS got a V-8 of 5.3 liter and this would become the named Aston Martin V8. The V-8 was the car the DBS should have been in the place, and it sold in much numbers than the six-cylinder DBS arguably looking quite a bit as well.

The first DBS#8217;s, with DB6 engines and wire wheels, are in a way stuck between two eras of Martin history. This car is one of and it#8217;s an intriguing but still project, as any disheveled Aston be. Located in Sylmar, California, it is an restoration that started years ago with no engine or (which, by the way, it still have), and was stripped down and with $7,500 worth of as well as given a conversion left-hand-drive to right-hand-drive.

There are tons of parts, trim pieces, that with the sale, but again is no motor or transmission. It#8217;s a big but at least it#8217;s a clean and as a #8217;67 this is a really DBS. It#8217;s still going to be worth as much as a V-8 car, though, and certainly not as as the classic DB6, so this is one that#8217;s going to take the right kind of person the right kind of taste.
