The factory build sheet shows that this car was ordered by the Garage Mirabeau, the official marque importer based in Paris, for the first owner, François Pieroni from Toulon in South of France. It came with several options including limited-slip differential, radio with electric aerial, chrome wheels with three-eared spinners, and heated rear windscreen. It was originally presented in charcoal Gray with black Connolly leather interior. The history of the car is documented in a booklet, recording all details and activity, and this has been passed on diligently from owner to owner. It shows that the first oil change and lubrication took place on 12 April 1966. The first owner kept the car until 1980, having carried out a partial engine re-build in 1979 that included changing the valve gear and gaskets. This stunning Aston then moved home, heading to Créteil. The leather upholstery was treated to some refurbishment in 1982, and in 1988 the car was found in Seine-et-Oise. That year it was re-painted dark green. In 1989 the current owner acquired the car and asked renowned specialist Piere Lamy to carry out some maintenance work.
The car was used sparingly, and a full service was carried out by Lamy the following year. Work included repair to the brake system and the front axle (including kingpins and ball joints), mechanical service, replacing the rear shock absorbers and clutch (plate, mechanism and release bearing), and the car was fitted with five new Michelin tyres. The odometer recorded 77,173 km in 1990, and stands at just 78,736 km today, reflecting its very careful use. Not driven for several years, the car was put back on the road in December 2016 by RS Sport.
This DB6 has many attractive features in addition to its lovely patina. It is an original French car, with a relatively small number of owners. It has a clear and detailed history documenting its regular maintenance by reputable workshops. It's a left-hand drive, matching numbers car. What could be more desirable?
