- DB6 Vantage left-hand-drive

The factory factsheet which comes with this car makes it possible to verify that it was delivered with the following specifications: Vantage engine, left-hand-drive, self-locking differential, air conditioning, chrome wheels with butterfly nuts, heated rear window, a Bosch Köln car radio with electric antenna, Marchal fog lamps. It was "Silver Birch" (a popular shade of Gray) with a "Dark Blue" interior, and is today in an elegant dark green, with beige upholstery.
In 1990, when it was registered in Texas on behalf of a Mr Cook, the car was imported into Switzerland before it caught the fancy of an Alsatian enthusiast. On its arrival, the car was greeted by a big party in its honor! A few months later, it was sent to Munich, to an Aston Martin restoration specialist, Hieber Automobile GmbH. The body and interior have been completely redone and a phone was installed, which in 1991 was very exceptional indeed. Another engine block was fitted, re-stamped with the original engine numbers (400/2660V). The very impressive invoice totals 130,000 DM and explains the extremely high quality of the restoration.
Passionate about the restoration of his car, our collector then used his DB6 Vantage very sparingly and is today selling it due to a lack of use. Thus, 25 years after the restoration job, the car still looks very beautiful, and is complimented by a light patina.
This powerful left-hand-drive Vantage is capable of accommodating four people and is as beautiful as it is desirable.
