The final derivative of the iconic ‘60s DB line of cars built at Newport Pagnell, the DB6 was introduced in 1965 and response to customer demand, the DB6 benefitted from a number of refinements over the DB5 aimed at making it a more comfortable and usable GT car. A Kamm tail was introduced to reduce aerodynamic drag and increase rear end stability. By the end of production in 1969 when the DB6 Mk2 superseded the model, just 1325 examples were built, for worldwide consumption.
The charming example was first delivered in 1966 in its current livery of Dawn Blue over Blue Grey (Connolly VM3244) hides. The extensive history file documents that in the mid-1980s, recognised Aston Martin specialists carried out various restorative works, evidently to a very high standard, as the condition of the car today testifies. With just another 30,000 miles of use in the following 35 years and having benefitted from thorough maintenance by Heritage agents and Aston Martin Works, the car is in very good order throughout, looking and driving just as a DB6 should. During its life, the originally supplied automatic gearbox has been replaced with the correct type 5-speed manual transmission, further enhancing the driving experience.
This excellent matching numbers example that displays just the right level of period patina, will surely appeal to the enthusiast, who we are sure will gain much pleasure from it in future. Supplied freshly serviced and prepared and with warranty, this vehicle is now available for viewing and demonstration at our Hertfordshire showroom.
