Please see our website for full listings and to find out more on how to register for bidding. Lot No. 395 - 1995 1966 Aston Martin DB6 Estimate: £180,000 - £220,000 Buyers Premium 12.5% + VAT Low ownership, matching chassis and engine number, ZF five-speed manual gearbox Continuation green logbook, cloth cover, original handbook, workshop manual, Heritage Certificate, sundry old MOTs dating back to 1974 and numerous parts receipts Over £30,000 recently spent on mechanicals at Aston Martin Engineering Derby Unleaded cylinder head conversion (Aston Engineering). Right-hand drive, 81,000 miles The culmination of Aston Martin's long-running line of DB six-cylinder sports saloons and thus considered by many to be the last 'real' Aston, the DB6 was introduced in 1965, updating the DB5. Although recognisably related to the Touring-styled DB4 of 1958, the DB6 abandoned the Carrozzeria Touring-developed Superleggera body structure of its predecessors in favour of conventional steel fabrication whilst retaining the aluminium outer panels. Increased rear-seat space was the prime DB6 objective so the wheelbase was now four inches longer than before, resulting in an extensive restyle with more-raked windscreen, raised roofline and reshaped rear quarter windows. Opening front quarter lights made a reappearance but the major change was at the rear where a 'Kamm tail' with spoiler improved the aerodynamics, greatly enhancing stability at high speeds. These many dimensional changes were integrated most successfully, as the DB6's overall length increased by only two inches. The Tadek Marek-designed six-cylinder engine had been enlarged to 3,995cc for the preceding DB5 and remained unchanged. Power output on triple SU carburettors was 282bhp, rising to 325bhp in Vantage specification, complete with triple Webers. Borg-Warner automatic transmission was offered alongside the standard ZF five-speed gearbox, and for the first time, there was optional power-assisted steering. First registered in Newcastle-upon-Tyne as 'LVK 37D' on 11th January 1966, this particular matching chassis and engine example, chassis DB6/2470/R, has clearly led an interesting life with previous owners enjoying the car for long periods of time. Details of the car’s life and work carried out over the years are contained within the interesting owner's file, and we thoroughly recommend interested parties make an appointment to come along and have a look for themselves. The factory-fitted engine (number 400/2379) has had its cylinder head converted to unleaded by Aston Engineering and, during our vendor's ownership, over £30,000 has been spent on the mechanicals at Aston Martin Engineering Derby, to ensure this DB6 drives as well as it looks. One for the true DB6 enthusiast, this appealing Aston shows a highly credible 81,000 miles on its odometer and is offered for sale with continuation green logbook, cloth cover, original handbook, workshop manual, Heritage Certificate, sundry old MOTs dating back to 1974, and numerous parts receipts.
