1971 ASTON MARTIN DBS V8 SPORTS SALOON
The production DBS V8 chassis number sequence commenced with '10001', making this the 356th example of this landmark model built. According to the copies of factory records on file, this V8 was ordered new through Aston Martin Lagonda, Inc for export. Finished in the exceedingly Tudor Green over Tan leather, 10356 was handsomely optioned with air conditioning, automatic transmission, dual head rests, aerial and speakers, Waso steering lock, and Fiam horns. Completed on December 17, 1971 and shipped six days later on December 23, 1971 the first owner and any early history on the car is not recorded. At some point, likely in the last two decades, the car was repainted red but the interior appears to be original. Noted as having been in the U.S. in the early 1990s according to records from the Aston Martin Owners Club, it was presented in 1989-91 by a J. Stinsmen of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The previous owner acquired the car from New Jersey in March of 2008 and has maintained the car on static display since. Runs and drives but will require servicing prior to active road use.
