November 2011

Welcome to the fourth issue of our Technical Newsletter. In this issue we are very proud to announce that front and rear DB6 bumpers have joined our extensive range of bright work items. We stock a huge range of parts for all Heritage models from DB4 onwards - for the DB cars we can supply most of the chrome and stainless steel items on the exterior including windscreen finishers, headlamp covers and badges as well as all the mechanical and electrical items that we stock.

We will continue to keep you informed with developments through future issues – for more information on any Heritage products please contact your Aston Martin parts supplier.

 

 

 


 

 

 

DB6 Bumpers

DB6 front and rear bumpers are available off the shelf for the first time in 20 years. Using original blueprints from the Aston Martin Heritage archive new tooling has been developed to perfectly re-create the complex contours of the original items.

Made from premium quality steel, the new bumpers are supplied unchromed allowing for final fettling to suit each car's individual wing shape.

·  055-072-0021 Rear RH

·  055-072-0022 Rear LH

·  72-27858 Fitting Kit (1x per bumper)

In addition to the DB6 we also stock bumpers made to original specifications on renewed tooling for DB4, DB5, DBS, and all pre-1989 V8 models.

Rubber Bush – Gear Lever

On our recent visit to the AMOC Autumn Concours at Chavenage House, we noticed more than a few cars in the DB class where this part was missing from the gear lever! Apart from helping to prevent heat and hot fumes coming up the gear lever, this bush provides a neat finish over the gear lever gaiter. The attached photo is taken from the original DB5 sales brochure, so if it was there when we built it, it should be there now!

Decals

DB Switch Stalk Decals

It's often the small details that really finish off a restoration or concours preparation. One such item has been reintroduced to our range. Black labels for the original DB5 and DB6 switch stalks provide the correct finishing touch to the instrument panel, available with the full range of letter markings:

·  052-037-0336 Blank for Spare Switch

·  052-037-0337 Printed with letter B - Heated backlight

·  052-037-0338 Printed with letter F - Fog

Shock Absorber Link Assemblies

Shock Absorber Link Assemblies – 6 cylinder models

Acting on your collective feedback we have recently commissioned new, premium quality, shock absorber links for the DB models.

Unlike some of the copy parts that are available these new links have been made to exacting Aston Martin specifications. The design has been improved to cope with the vehicle weights and high performance capabilities of these iconic cars, resulting in an extremely durable component.

·  020-026-0155 Rear Shock Absorber Link - DB4

·  055-026-0155 Rear Shock Absorber Link - DB5 & DB6

 

 

 


 

 

 

Carburettor Trumpet

Carburettor Trumpet – V8 Vantage

We are delighted to re-introduce the V8 Vantage carburettor trumpet and gauze assembly which has not been available for some years. Trumpets are from spun steel, the bases laser cut for accuracy to the original design. After assembly and zinc plating, the high specification gauze (that has been formed using new tooling) is bonded to the assembly. A modern aircraft specification compound is used in this process to ensure improved durability over the original.

Air Filter Housing Gasket

Previously unavailable these original specification cork gaskets are now available for our 6 cylinder air filter housings. These gaskets locate above and below the air filter element and provide a better air-tight seal. All three parts are made in the UK to original drawings on renewed tooling.

Improve the appearance of your air filter assembly and ensure optimum induction by fitting this important gasket.

DVD

DB5 Sales Brochure and “We Had Our Time” DVD

With the Christmas season fast approaching, why not consider these ideal gifts from Aston Martin Heritage?

The DB5 Brochure is a faithful reproduction of the original 1964 publication and includes a message from David Brown, historic photos and a detailed specification. The quality and weight of the paper has been closely matched to the original, examples of which now change hands for hundreds of pounds at auction. The finishing touch for any DB5 history file!

"We Had Our Time" is a compelling account of life at the Newport Pagnell factory from 1954 to 2007 and provides a fascinating insight with anecdotes from 26 employees together with previously unseen film footage and historic photographs. Professionally produced by ex BBC staff, this DVD is an important record of a glorious era in Aston Martin history.

·  704976 "We Had Our Time" DVD – PAL version

·  704976U "We Had Our Time" DVD – NTSC version (USA format)
