Further Information

Aston Workshop are delighted to present for sale this 1969 Aston Martin DBS upgraded to Vantage manual specification, which is an ideal basis for restoration. The car recently arrived at Aston Workshop in 'Barn Find' condition, and would be a fantastic DBS on which to build your dream Aston Martin. Originally Black with Black leather, the car was originally sold as a Borg Warner Automatic with Power Steering, Fiamm Horns, and a Radiomobile Radio. The conversion to manual utilised an original ZF 5-speed gearbox. As shown in the pictures, the car was at some point fitted with a Webasto roof and an exceptionally rare Vinyl roof in the American style. We have inspected the car, and can confirm the engine runs and the gearbox is in full working order.

The DBS featured in the only James Bond film starring George Lazenby as the international superspy, ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’, elevating it to the level of fame reserved for Bond vehicles only. Interest in the DBS has been rising steadily amongst Aston Martin collectors for some time now, and this car represents a fantastic opportunity to build someone’s dream Aston. Sold “as-is”, we can also advise on the steps required to finish the car or offer our services in building a beautiful DBS including:

  • Transmission conversion, with modern swaps or the original gearbox options.
  • Engine upgrades to larger capacities.
  • Handling improvements including suspension and brake upgrades.
  • Interior retrims.

This 1969 Aston Martin DBS is now for sale at Aston Workshop. Our helpful sales team are happy to discuss the car in further detail; please call +44 (0) 1207 268 932 / +44 (0) 7827353195 or email sales@aston.co.uk.
