Typically used by Aston Martin to distinguish a high-performance engine option on an existing model, the Aston Martin Vantage would become its own model during 1972 and 1973. Based off the Aston Martin DBS, which was powered by a brand new V8 at the time, the main distinctive features of the 1973 Aston Martin Vantage were the DB6-looking grille and the 2-headlight front clip. Designed by Tadek Marek, the straight six-cylinder engine was perfected from years of tuning for previous models. Major improvements were made and implemented during the years of production of the DBS, which the Vantage benefited from. Cosmetic and mechanical upgrades were also made, one of which is the ‘dog leg’ ZF five speed gearbox that was used for the DBS V8. Of course, these are just a few of the many characteristics that would interest potential buyers looking for a classic Aston Martin.


1973 Aston Martin Vantage Seller’s Guide

Being the last Aston to come with wire wheels and with a 6-cylinder engine (until the DB7 in 1993), the 1973 Aston Martin Vantage is very desirable in today’s classic car market among collectors of all types. This is only reinforced by the fact that only 71 examples were made in its short 2-year production cycle. When the DB6 was released, the public was asking for an Aston Martin V8 engine. The development of a V8 unit took a while and was very well received when finally mounted on the DBS. However, the Vantage was still very popular and the clients loved the 6-cylinder engine.
