Description

This magnificent RHD (right hand driven) Aston Martin DBS Series 1 was sold new in New Zealand where they drive on the left side of the road like in the UK. In 2015 the car was shipped from Victoria, Australia to the Netherlands.

Originally the car was finished in red, in 2016 the DBS was given a body restoration and was painted in the very desirable original Aston Martin colour Olive Green as seen on the DBS from the 1969 James Bond movie ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’. In the process also the chrome trim was renewed.

This Aston Martin DBS is in a very good condition, technically and mechanically the automobile was extensively serviced and brought up to date. The odometer shows 42. 655 Miles. The leather interior is a fully original time capsule in wonderful condition.

This DBS is an early example still boasting the wood veneer finish around the gauges on the dashboard, in the second half of 1969 this part of the dashboard was finished in black plastic.

Distinguishing Series 1 features are the quad headlamps, the chrome slat grille, the 3995 cc six-cylinder engine derived from the DB6, and the air-vents behind the side windows. This car is fitted with the original 3-speed automatic gearbox which works perfectly. The engine power is transmitted to the rear wheels via a limited slip differential. The standard of specification is very impressive for a classic from the 1960s and 70s. All models had electric windows, disc brakes around with two servos and power steering. This car is additionally fitted with an electric cooling fan and a Sony radio/ CD stereo system. The car comes with historic documentation.

In total only 802 examples of the Aston Martin DBS were built of which 309 in 1969. This wonderful Aston Martin DBS is a fantastic piece of Aston Martin heritage. Like a silver DB5, this Olive Green metallic DBS also brings the ‘bigger than life’ movie world of James Bond to the person who can appreciate that romantic idea…Being kept in a classic car collection, in 2022 the Aston Martin was road registered. In the same year the car participated in the Dutch Aston Martin Club Concours elegance which was held on the premises of the former Dutch Royal Palace of Soestdijk.
