Aston Martin DBS V8, one of only 405 manufactured, is an original UK right-hand drive car, bearing chassis number #10402/RCA. It was registered on the 16th of March 1972 by Lazenby Garages Ltd in Staines. The original specification included Oxford Blue paintwork, a Beige leather interior, fuel injection and automatic transmission.
The car has been subject to general maintenance work over the years which includes suspension, and chassis work. The aluminium bodywork is sound overall, but there is evidence of some blistering in a few areas of the deep Oxford blue paintwork the interior is good and commensurate with the car's age.
Having just been recommissioned, it is a perfectly usable example.
The car has good oil pressure and the oil and water temperatures hold firm when the car is run up.
It is believed that the car has been stored for a large part of the last 23 years as it has only covered 226 miles between its MOT in 1994 and its MOT in 2017.
Some of the recent maintenance includes:
Drain and flush fuel tank and fuel lines
Flush and clean Bosch fuel pump and refit
New Battery and on/off isolator fitted
New spark plugs, air and oil filters, new engine oil - timing also reset
New hi-torque starter motor fitted - supplied by Aston Engineering

Stainless steel door sill covers removed, sills inspected, cleaned, protective coating applied as required and new sill covers fitted
