Although both cars ran simultaneously until 1971, the Aston Martin DBS was launched in 1967 to replace the Aston Martin DB6 – two of the most popular Aston Martin classics in the market today. Its more modern body style and spacious interior made the 1968 Aston Martin DBS a very popular grand touring car at the time. Initially, the car was designed to carry the brand new V8 engine, but it wasn’t ready in time, so the engineers decided to use the Tadek Marek DOHC six-cylinder of the DB6. Although the overall weight of the car was greater than the DB6, the DBS was still a light grand touring car for the era. To compensate for the gain, Aston made the Vantage option available to buyers. The result was an increased 325 horsepower, against only 283 for the standard engine. If you’re interested in selling a 1968 Aston Martin DBS, the Alex Manos team has experts ready to assist you. These are just a few of the interesting characteristics that potential buyers will want to know about your particular model.


1968 Aston Martin DBS Seller’s Guide

The Aston Martin DBS model’s starring role in the James Bond movie On Her Majesty’s Secret Service in 1969 and its appearance in Diamonds Are Forever in 1971 made the Aston Martin DBS an instant cult classic. Although still in line with Aston Martin’s traditional style, the design of the 1968 Aston Martin DBS differs noticeably from the previous DB4, DB5 and DB6 models, making it a very iconic car of the 1970’s. The famous 72-spoke chrome knock-off wire wheels were installed on most DBSs, and are now very desirable. If you own a DBS and are looking to sell it, here are a couple of tips that might help you complete a smooth transaction. For example, you should always gather any documentation you have on the car – particularly ownership records, restoration and repair documents, and more. Furthermore, if your classic Aston Martin has any additional options, you’ll want to be sure to note those. Whether your classic 1968 Aston Martin DBS is in pristine condition or is in need of complete restoration, the Alex Manos team would be delighted to hear from you.
