Description

An icon of the swinging sixties, the DB6 was introduced in 1965 replacing the iconic DB5. With substantial improvements, including a longer wheelbase and higher roofline providing increased head and rear leg room. Opening front quarterlights and the competition derived 'Kamm tail’ distinguished the model, whilst improving stability at speed. A success of the day, some 1,300 DB6’s were built and owned by captains of industry and popular culture idols of the period including Mick Jagger and Paul McCartney.

The DB6 we are delighted to offer, was delivered new in March 1966. Finished in Pacific Blue with Black hides, with 5 speed manual ZF transmission. Optional extras fitted, included chrome wheels and a heated rear screen. Early Aston Martin service records included in the history file, confirm vehicle servicing and maintenance carried out by Aston Martin until 1971, making note of a replacement engine block installed in 1967 and present in the car today.

Purchased by its last owner in 2003, with a recorded mileage of just 56,500 (supported by it's servicing history and MOT certificates) this DB6 was enjoyed sparingly, before recently benefiting from extensive body, chassis, engine and drivetrain restorative works, including a bare metal repaint in it’s original body colour. Carried out by marque specialists between 2015/16, an extensive photographic and paper record of the works, original build sheet and period and later service history, is provided in the cars history folder.

Post restoration, the car has been driven lightly and is for sale, having been replaced by a DB6 Volante. Ready to be enjoyed by it’s next custodian after 15 years ownership, this car represents excellent value in todays market, with all major restorative works completed.
