This exceptional Aston Martin DB6 MKI was supplied new in Silver Birch with Blue upholstery and manual transmission. An original UK RHD matching numbers car with a comprehensive history.
First registered on the 25th May 1966 by Cyril Williams Motors Ltd for a private owner in Shropshire who owned the car for five years. A letter dated March 1974 from the first owner confirms he covered around 20,000 miles in the car and during his ownership it had proven completely trouble free. Apart from service items the only replacement parts required were new exhaust silencers. In August 1971 the Aston changed hands for the first time and was to be owned by a Director of a Reading based Financial Services business. During his ownership it was maintained by a small Aston and Jaguar specialist. When sold it had then covered 30,000 miles from new. In February 1974 the DB6 was with its third owner based in Southampton and a letter dated November 1976 confirms he sold the car with a mileage of 49,000. He too had excellent service from the car, only needing to change an engine mount, battery and brake discs and pads during his ownership.

In 1977 at 51100 miles it had a new clutch, exhaust system after a service 120 miles later then fully serviced it sold to a Major from the Royal Pioneer Corps. Whilst stationed in Hannover West Germany he kept the car until 1986 taking the mileage to around 92,000. During his ownership work included overhauling the brakes, in 1980 over £2380 was spent at Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd, Newport Pagnell on a radiator, timing chain, distributor drive, rebuilt cylinder head with new valves, guides, springs etc, overhauling the carburettors and fitting a new propshaft, gearbox mountings and clutch. In May 1986, Queensbury Road Garage, who supplied the car to the Military Major several years previous sold the car for the second time, to a private owner in Northamptonshire, mileage recorded at 92644.

From 1986 to 1995 the Aston was with one owner who spent a substantial amount of money on the car. Over the nine-year period only around 4000 miles were covered but this largely original car was restored over this period with as much originality retained as possible. Bodywork was completely stripped down, and re-sprayed in its original colour. Invoices are present from GTC Engineering who rebuilt the engine compartment and carried out various detailed work, so the vehicle was ready to be exhibited at events and shows. By 1998 the car was owned by a Covent Garden based lawyer who mainly used London based Aston Martin specialists Pugsley & Lewis Ltd and Ian Mason Aston Martin Services to maintain the car. Invoices during the late 1990's and 2000 total in the region of £15,000 . In 2001 at 112,000 miles the Aston Martin was sold to a Mayfair based entrepreneur who owned the car for two years, covered 4000 miles and since 2004 it has been with one owner who over almost fifteen years has improved this largely original car to the next level in terms of driveability and condition.

In 2004 the engine was stripped and rebuilt with all parts supplied by Aston Martin Engineering Ltd. The original engine was rebuilt to standard specification, liners were honed, new big end and main bearings fitted and the crankshaft re-ground. A report of all the engine work and photographs are in the detailed history file. In 2014 EZ power steering was installed. Also in 2016 the car was treated to a full bare metal re-paint and re-chrome. The bodyshell was found to be in outstanding condition. 2016 expenditure was around £20,000. During 2018, a further £4,500 has been spent on a top-quality wool carpet set as per original spec. The Carburettors have also been recently rebuilt.

An original matching numbers car, in its correct original colours with the highly desirable 5 speed ZF gearbox. The car also has the provenance of an extensive, well documented history file that warrants its mileage of 119000 miles in 53 years. The car has also covered just 2500 miles since its engine rebuild and having had a program of cosmetic work in 2016 the car presents in outstanding condition. It is also important to highlight this car has never required major restoration work. It has spent the majority if not all its time taxed, MOT tested and, on the road, and has never been left to deteriorate. Finding good quality highly original cars of this age can prove difficult and its original leather seats evidence the car's careful ownership. The original Blue leather seats are beautifully presented and represent a top class, highly original car. The underside vehicle is first class, and could easily be confused with a recently rebuilt car with a fresh, outstanding finish with original floor pans presenting perfectly. The 3995cc standard and rebuilt engine is first class with outstanding performance further improved with the recent carburettor overhaul, the EZ powered light steering is a true delight, the brakes and suspension feel exceptional on the road and the five speed ZF gearbox is perfect with smooth changes up and down the gearbox. A well presented and exceptional driving car that has clearly had a meticulous, discerning owner who has cherished his car.
