Very early, UK-supplied, right-hand drive, six-cylinder DBS with the 5-speed manual transmission Tastefully finished with Olive Green paintwork, Fawn Connolly leather seating and matching Woburn Sand carpets Comprehensive history folder including invoices for recent recommissioning, Heritage Trust Certificate and a 2017 insurance valuation for 175,000 A lovely, matching numbers example recommissioned and performing wellIntroduced at the October 1967 Motor Show, the DBS was the successor to the famed Aston Martin DB6, although the two ran concurrently for three years. Styled in-house by William Towns, the aluminium-bodied four-seater had a sharper, more Italian look than the curvaceous DB6, but still exuded road presence and looks mighty impressive even today. Longer, wider and more luxurious than the DB6, the DBS employed a platform chassis with independent suspension all round: wishbone and coil springs at the front, De Dion with Watts linkage at the rear. Autocar judged it superior to thepreceding DB6 in many areas, offering four full-sized seats in addition to transformed handling and road holding courtesy of the new suspension and standardised power steering. Originally designed to accept an all-new V8 engine, this was not ready in time for the car's launch, so it was initially fitted with the legendary four-litre twin-cam DB6 engine producing 282bhp at 5,500rpm through triple SU carburettors. A total of just 787 DBS' rolled off the production line from 1967-1972. Although less well known as such than the earlier 'DB-Series, the DBS is yet another 'James Bond' Aston Martin, having featured in the 1969 motion picture, 'On Her Majesty's Secret Service', starring George Lazenby as the eponymous secret agent.First registered on 12 June 1968, this lovely home market, early Aston Martin DBS had been tastefully specified with Goodwood Green paintwork and contrasting Fawn Connolly leather interior. It was fitted with the standard 4-litre Six fuelled through triple SU HD8 carburettors andspecified with the 5-speed ZF transmission. The Heritage Certificate included in the history folder lists optional extras including Motorola radio, Avon tyres, and Woburn Sand carpet. Our vendor is an Aston Martin enthusiast and informs us that this example remains 'numbers-matching' and wears an unusual factory fitted DBS badge on the rear. The owner prior to our vendor kept this car for 40 years and, after a period of dry storage, the decision was taken to recommission the car and refinish the exterior in AM Olive Green. The interior appears original and presents very well with a lovely patina.Accompanying chassis number 40 is a history folder containing the current V5 Certificate, a copy of the original build sheet, its Heritage Certificate and an insurance valuation dated 2017 from a highly regarded marque specialist stating that the car is in superb condition and should be insured for not less than 175,000.Only in the last ten years have original six-cylinder DBS started to become sought-afterand they can now command substantial amounts. The early design was so much more pure of line and the 4-litre engine from the DB6 just says Aston Martin in a way the V8 never really did. There are, naturally, advocates of the V8 but the car works beautifully with the straight-six. There's so much characterand that very English drawl as the six digs in and pulls hard is the perfect soundtrack for a very English car.

  • Make: HILLMAN
  • Model: IMP
  • Derivative: Californian
  • Category: Coupe
  • Year: 1,968
  • Mileage (Miles): 39,000
  • Mileage (KM): 62,764
  • Colour: Red
  • RHD/LHD: RHD
  • Gearbox type: Manual

1968 Hillman Imp Californian. Bright red with black upholstery. A very rare sight on U.K roads now. The coupe bodyshell is similar to the standard body but features a more shallow-raked windscreen and rear window which, unlike that on the standard bodied cars, can not be opened. The attempt at a more sporty design did not translate into better acceleration or top speed figures and the aerodynamics of the standard saloon are actually slightly better. The new body style made its first appearance at the Paris Motor Show in October 1967, with the introduction of the sporting Sunbeam Stiletto. The coupe body had also appeared, with less powerful engines, in the Hillman Imp Californian announced in January 1967 and the more luxurious Singer Chamois coupe. Rare indeed and in superb condition following a bare shell rebuild and professional repaint. Engine reconditioned and many new ancillaries to include carburettor dynamo etc. The interior was re-trimmed, new tyres fitted and we will apply a fresh MOT onthe car. The car drives without fault and performed well on test drive. Absolutely any inspection is welcome and viewing is highly recommended. All major debit cards accepted. Follow us on facebook, like us on Instagram or just call or email us for more information. Free U.K. mainland delivery included.
