Originally bought by a Doctor in Houston. this has been a Florida car for the past 30 years 2 owners including myself.  The car was being restored by its previous owner but unfortunately he died and I received the repainted car. rust free along with many boxes of dismantled parts.  I completed the restoration of this car over the past 4 years and am driving it; interior. brakes. hand brake. fuel pump. differential. fuel tank. shocks. steering. injection system. new injectors. thermistor. thermostat. new efficient air con compressor. FIAMM air horns. oem spark wires. rebuilt original retracting seatbelts. powerball 700 optical electronic ignition (exterior is original Lucas). all filters. oils. plugs and battery changed. etc.  Engine and painting had been done by previous owner.  Everything works including electric windows. the clock. radio( not sure about 8 track). electric antenna and air conditioning. It comes with a number of original manuals(parts. workshop. owners and Learjet radio) and some parts. Two very small dings and scratches and 2 small paint chips. The only thing you might want to do is replace exhaust with Stainless steel.  It still has a lot of life left in it so I didn't see the need to change it but it has the usual surface rust color as you can see.  The tool kit is not original and there is no jack and the center chrome above the front window was lost during restoration.  I am exploring having one made and I have a spare section of rear window chrome which can be bent to fit.  Spare tire is Goodyear Eagle.  For purists who don't like the tire lettering. the tires can be reversed to opposite sides and will be all black. I have plenty of pictures. documentation etc.  5. 3 liter 8 cylinder mechanical bosch fuel injection.  Automatic transmission. LHD Original US car.  All correct and original.  Clear Title and currently registered in Florida.

You are welcome to contact me with any questions. 786 218 8416 and for any more pictures. I will work with your shipper and will ship worldwide

The US market was eager to get its hands on the DBS V8 but was initially prevented from doing so as the engine required modification to pass the tight rules on emissions. In addition. all US market cars had as standard Seat belt restraints. Coolair air conditioning. rear seat belts. door mirror and side protection beams in the doors. US customers got the opportunity to acquire a DBS V8 in October 1971 but as certification expired by the end of that year only about 40 were imported out of a total production of 48 with the emission control engine. The US had to wait until October 1974 before new Aston Martins could again be sold. Five cars of the 48 with the federal engine were sold in Japan.

In only a little over two years of production. the total number of DBS V8s reached just 403 examples (309 RHD and 94 LHD) with 121 known to be automatics. After due consideration. the Registrars feel that at least 310 examples still exist although some are perhaps waiting to be rediscovered.

The first letter of the suffix is thankfully easily understood with R for right hand drive and L for left. Cars could be specified with ‘Coolair' (suffix ‘C' on the chassis number) or special air conditioning (suffix ‘CA'). At the time of the 1971 London Motor Show. the meaning changed slightly; ‘C' still indicated Coolair but the following ‘A' indicated acrylic paint.

AMOC nomenclature was Series 1 V8 (i. e. first model with the V8 engine)
