ODOMETER
1969 Aston Martin DBS

The DBS was intended as the successor to the Aston Martin DB6, although the two ran concurrently for three years. Powered by a six cylinder engine, it was produced from 1967 until 1972. It was a larger coupé than the DB6, with four full sized seats, but was powered by the same 4.0 L engine as the previous car. Claimed engine output was 280 bhp, but a Vantage engine option used Italian made Weber carburettors, increasing output to an advertised 325 bhp. Touring of Milan was commissioned to design the DB6 replacement and produced two prototypes before the design house went out of business. William Towns was then hastily brought in to design the new car. The DBS was intended to have a more modern look than the previous series of Aston models, and it incorporated a fastback style rear end and squared off front grille, not Astons style at the time, but very much then in vogue in automotive design circles of the late sixties. Trademark Aston design features, such as a bonnet scoop, knock off wire wheels, and side air vents with stainless steel brightwork were however retained. The DBS was the last Aston Martin to be built under David Brown's control. Chassis number '5334/R' was supplied new via Edwards & Co to Mr Harold Musker, OBE, MC of Warsash, Southampton. This DBS was originally finished in Silver Birch with black Connolly leather trim, and left the factory with Borg Warner automatic transmission, power assisted steering, Radiomobile radio, and 'new reflective type number plates'. The car was repainted in its current Champagne Gold livery during restoration in 2005, which was helped by the fact that, as the engine bay, floor pan, and boot are finished in black at the factory, and major components such as the engine, running gear, interior, etc can be left in situ. '5334/R' has also been upgraded with the more desirable five-speed manual gearbox. The car is said to drive very well, its engine holding excellent oil pressure. The car would nevertheless benefit from further cosmetic improvements, including refreshing the paintwork and re-trimming the front seats, to realise its full potential. Currently MoT'd, '5334/R' comes with comprehensive and impressive history file, about 3" thick, containing numerous service/maintenance invoices; photographic evidence of a complete engine rebuildm, various restoration records, and expired MoTs, etc documenting the many thousands of pounds spent over the years.
