Richards of England (ROE) are proud to present this fully restored 1966 Aston Martin MK1 DB6 Vantage. ‘Kept in hibernation’ for half its lifetime, this original DB6 Vantage has now been restored to its former glory.

The DB6 is considered by many to be the last 'real' Aston when it was introduced in 1965. Boasting a more aerodynamically efficient body shape over its DB5 predecessor the DB6 was and still is a truly beautiful motorcar with impressive power. On triple SU carburettors the output was 282bhp, rising to 325bhp in Vantage specification and complete with triple Webers. Borg-Warner automatic transmission was offered alongside the standard ZF five-speed gearbox, with the first still installed in the vehicle today.

Throughout its life this motor car has been cherished. Manufactured to Vantage specification, chassis number 'DB6/2594/R' was ordered with Borg Warner automatic transmission, chrome road wheels, heated rear window, 3-ear hubcaps, and power aerial. It’s worth noting that the automatic gear box is a special order for a Vantage. The Aston was sold new via H R Owen to BSP Industries of Borehamwood, Hertfordshire and was originally registered as BSP 1. J A Moddy of Harpenden was assigned the duty of maintaining the car for the company and thus appears on the guarantee sheet. It’s believed the car was seldom used and was kept more as a status symbol, before eventually being sold. The car also has some early ‘hill climb’ mentions in old Aston Martin records.

The deceased owner, Mr Graham Hill then purchased the DB6 through his company, H M Factors Motor Spares. Mr Hill cherished his Aston Martin, restricting its use to special occasions. When Mr Hill passed away, the car was transferred into his wife’s name (Mrs Barbara Hill). DB6/2594/R was then treasured as an ‘heirloom’ and remained in storage at the family home. The mileage of 15,000 miles on arrival appears to be credible and is an interesting talking point. There is a milage certificate of 14,100 from an MoT issued in 1985 just before the Aston was placed into storage. A report taken during the engine rebuild also supports the history, signalling minimal wear and tear of engine components and is consistent with the odometer reading.

When our client purchased “NAN 941D” it was well weathered due to spending 25 years in storage. Off the road for half its lifetime, this original DB6 Vantage has now been transformed. The current owner has invested a generous sum of money into this complete restoration, allowing ‘2594’ to return to the open road. From the chassis to the smallest component, this DB6 has been brought back to life with care and attention. We have attempted to preserve and restore original components, providing an authentic feel. The motor car has also undergone a complete mechanical rebuild to the underside, suspension, brakes, axle/differential, and engine bay. The engine has been completely stripped and rebuilt to its original vantage specification, along with the automatic gearbox.

The dark “Pacific Blue” paint work provides incredible depth, as a perfect back drop for the chrome brightwork. The black Connolly Vaumol hide, Wilton carpets and lightly embossed vinyl head lining, have all been re-trimmed as per original, using traditional techniques, which compliments the exterior beautifully. As a complete car, this DB6 is a true spectacle and one of the finest examples currently presented to the market. This is a fantastic investment opportunity to own a very low mileage DB6 Vantage, whether to be preserved for years to come, or driven as the grand touring car it was designed to be.

Comprehensive road testing and detailing to the highest standard will take place prior to delivery of this motor car. The DB6 also comes with a complimentary photobook showing the Aston’s restorative journey. The book has been carefully crafted from the same Vaumol leather hide as was used for the DB6’s interior. By providing you with this photo book we are inviting you to view the exhaustive list of works carried out to bring ‘DB6/2594/R’ back to life. Further to this nationwide “covered in” transportation and a years warranty are all included as part of our service.
