Aston Martin DBS from 1968, which spent more time in the garage than on the road, will be sold at auction by the end of May, organized by the auction house Silverstone Auctions. On 5th November 1968, the car was delivered to the customer in Surrey in the UK. It has power steering, air conditioning and a Motorola radio.
Less than two years after the purchase, the first owner sold the car to a man known by the surname Pasqua in April 1970, who registered it in British island of Jersey near the French coast, which belongs to the Channel Islands. Pasqua drove it until 1986, and then decided to put it away in his barn where it stayed for the next 30 years.
Aston Martin DBS wears the original Mink Bronze body paint and with a Red Connolly interior, its speedometer shows 30,565 miles (49,189 kilometres) and it needs restoration to bring back its former glory.
It is powered by the original six-cylinder, 4.0-liter engine linked to a Borg-Warner automatic transmission.
The auction is scheduled for May 20, and Silverstone Auctions predicted a price between £50,000 and £60,000 ($72,628 – $87,153).
