1971 Aston Martin DBS V8 Survivor!

1971 Aston Martin DBS V8

This 1971 Aston Martin DBS V8 has been a single family-owned car its entire existence. Passed down from father to son, there is no clear reason why it is being sold, but it has a starting bid price of $89,995 with no reserve. It is located in Southampton, New York. There is a VIN listed for the suave vehicle, and the odometer reads 24,569 miles. They also state the title is clear. You can view more on eBay.

Mechanically, they do not mention if the car runs or drives. They do say the car is fitted with factory Nardi wheel, a limited-slip differential, power steering, and power brakes. One thing they do note is that the car has been repainted at some point. There is also some other literature that comes with the car, including an original service voucher booklet, original registration booklet, a parts catalog, and an instruction book.

Creature comforts inside include electric windows, air conditioning, and an eight-track radio. There are also rear seat belts installed. It is amazing to think about how safety was interpreted and/or disregarded back in the day. Some would argue it takes the thrill out of things. To each their own, but I think I’d rather live to have more thrills than perish while enjoying one. Then again, not even all safety measures can prevent death. Seat belts are just a start.

The seller lists a website that you can go to for more details photos. One thing to figure out though, is what is going on with the back window? It doesn’t look like there is a window and there is nothing mentioned in the listing about it missing. You will certainly want to get that sorted out if you are handing over north of $80,000. They do give you a number multiple times in the listing to contact with any questions.

    I would buy a new Aston Martin but not a used one. New AM are pricey.

    Check out the AM website.

    Like the looks, like the style lines. You can see the 70’s era. But these are somewhat rare and not as pricey as early DB series car’s.

    A rich friend of mine owned one of these and I asked him if it was expensive to maintain. His reply was that you have to have deep pockets in order to buy one and even deeper pockets to maintain it.

    That back seating is a bit on the snug side.

    The backglass is removable for better headroom for the rear passengers.

    The rear bumper looks to be out-of-true in the picture provided… worth examining closer.

    You can have the original glass company, Pilkington, make a rear window with the electric elements, and ship to the US from UK for $1,605.92. They said 10-12 weeks but mine took 15 weeks, this summer.

    No bids and one day left.

    I think that shows the price is way to high.

    But really other than some millonaire collector wanting another toy, I fail to see the attaction ?

    The Lazenby Bond Aston, they used a 6 banger green DB in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service in 1969. 18 years later, it was used a Bond car again in 1987’s The Living Daylights.

    This bodystyle pretty much ran from 1969 through the early 90’s.

  10. Philip

    DBS Body style ran from 1967-69 with 6 cyl. only, then 6 and 8 cyl. available until mid 1972 when the front end changed to 2 head lights with 8 cyl. only offered and now named the AM V8, and the car lengthened 1.5 inches in 1974, the last year of the AM V8 was 1989.
