This Aston Martin DB6 is first registered on the 20th of November 1969.
The car was newly delivered in the UK and the original sales invoice is available with the car.
In October 1998, the DB6 came to Holland.
3 years later, the Aston was sold to the former owner where we bought the car from. The Aston has been in the former owners possession for 16 years. The gentleman took a lot of care for the car, used it once in a while but took a lot of care for the technique and always used the car with a lot of care.
The car has been regularly maintained during its ownerships and is supplied with its original instruction book and with a taxation report from December 2016 valuing the Aston on an amount of € 400.000,
During a body restoration, the former owner decided to bring the car in a beautiful pearl black paint with a stunning blue interior. A color combination which is excellent.
Benefitting from meticulous maintenance, the car drives and handles superbly today, with few road miles, except for enjoyable family outings. The engine runs extremely well, displaying good oil pressure.
A wonderful opportunity to acquire an example of a very rare and desirable piece David Browns Aston Martin.
The overall condition of the exterior is very nice. The black color is superb for the car and combines very well with the blue interior.
The paint is in a wonderful condition even as the chrome which seems almost as new.
The grille show a little bit of wearing but this gives the Aston a nice patina.
The doorfittings are almost nicer then new.
Windows are without scratches and the rubbers are all in a nice and descent order.
The chrome wired wheels are brand new and have driven approximately 500 to 1000 kilometers.
Interior wise, the DB6 is excellent. Almost every part of the interior is still original and in a wonderful condition.
The smell by opening the door is fabulous and typically english. A typical Connolly leather smell is reaching the nose immediately and this smell starts immediately the emotion of driving and using the DB6.
The engine compartment is in a very nice condition. The different components are very nicely detailed.
As described above, the former owner changed the original Fuel Injection for 3 properly working SU carburetors but the fuel injection is coming with the car and it should be possible nowadays to rebuilt the fuel injection on such a way that it is able to handle the impressive 6 cylinder engine.
The driving experience this DB6 delivers is very much that of a new 1969 model car. The power delivery is crisp and linear, the clutch and driveline are all operating as designed, but this specific DB6 is driving even better as other examples we have had in our collection.
One can feel that this is not an over the top restored example but a very solid and correct driving machine. The handling is seriously the best from all DB6’s we have had, and the engine power is impressive.
The DB6, and definitely the MKII is an amazing car to drive with and can easily be used on a daily base. It’s a cruiser but also a wulf in sheep clothes because when the gas pedal is pushed, the car turns into a serious racer.
Aston Martins of this era have always been a top choice for the social elite. Britain’s Prince Charles was given a DB6 Mk II Volante by his mother on the occasion of his 21st birthday, in 1969. It was a Volante version of a DB6 that made the global headlines and newspaper front pages when his son Prince William married Kate Middleton, and the newly minted Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were extensively photographed departing Buckingham Palace in Dad’s car, the DB6, with the number plate cheekily proclaiming “JU5T WED.”
