1969 ASTON MARTIN DBS SALOON LHD with Matching Numbers and
Desirable 5-Speed Manual Gearbox This 1969 Aston Martin DBS LHD
with desirable 5-Speed Manual Gearbox is special both for its short
list of owners as well as its original specification. According to
copies of factory records, DBS/5417/LC was ordered new by Wallard
Ward Malley, Jr., the president of The Edw. Malley Company.
Malley's, New Haven's premier department store and a family
business since 1848, afforded Wallace the means to buy his Aston,
and the taste to specify all the right things. Finished in Fiesta
Red over Black Connolly hides, Malley ensured he'd arrive at work
looking cool thanks to a Coolaire air conditioning system. In
addition to that, he'd be up-to-date with the news care of a Bosch
New Yorker radio, safe thanks to front seat headrests and front and
rear seat belts, and unruffled care of power-assisted steering.
Delivered at the end of June 1969, Malley would only enjoy the car
briefly before passing away in 1971. The estate would retain the
car until April 25, 1973 when it was purchased by fellow Nutmeg
State resident and banker Richard Hyman. A dedicated enthusiast,
Mr. Hyman would drive and enjoy his DBS for the rest of his life.
The car was acquired by the current owner in 2011, two years after
Mr. Hyman's passing. Largely original and still finished in its
original color scheme, this three owner 5-Speed DBS has been
frugally driven in the last decade and some recommissioning is
recommended prior to active touring and use. This well optioned and
luxurious grand routier is now ready to make its way to its fourth
fortunate owner. CHASSIS NO. DBS/5417/LCENGINE NO. 400/4200/S Three
