Dual Barn Find: 1969/70 Aston Martin DBS V8 and Vantage

Heading to auction together after living side-by-side for over a decade.

Having been manufactured within a year from each other, these two classic Aston Martins have become even closer over the last ten years - when they were bought by the same owner and stored together in the same garage. Now, the two classic Brits are heading across the block by the UK’s Silverstone Auctions, and each is expected to fetch between £20,000-25,000. The first car is this stunning 1969 Aston Martin DBS Vantage, equipped with a 6-cylinder, 4-liter engine.

This Vantage came with 325 hosepower, a manual gearbox and right-hand drive. According to the sellers, it is “largely untouched, the car is in highly original condition and has survived storage remarkably well with the engine still turning over." The second Aston is a 1970 DBS V8 Series I, with a 5.3-liter V-8 making 320hp and a top speed of 160mph. It has 27,700 miles on the clock, and along with the Vantage, has been parked in a garage for the greater part of the last decade.
