Description

Fabulously presented in the striking but seldom seen original shade of Autumn Gold, this 1967 Aston Martin DB6 is a gorgeous example of the quintessential post-war English sports car. The accompanying Aston Martin Heritage Trust Certificate shows 3112/R was completed on July 8th, 1967, and dispatched through Lazenby Garages. Whilst being in the hands of its current custodian, Aston Workshop, the vehicle has benefited from extensive restoration work totalling just over £200,000 with an emphasis on retaining the car’s originality. The details of which include a bare metal re-spray, major mechanical inspection/overhaul and refinishing of all components. Although many original features have been retained, for instance the hydraulic PAS and period radio, the original automatic transmission has been upgraded to a modern 5-speed, making it an absolute pleasure to drive. Combining this with the total work carried out, the handling package and road manners remain impeccable. This is often something commented on by our staff which have had the pleasure and experience of driving many Aston Martins.

It is now presented in superb condition, with finish quality and detailing suitable for close inspection. The paintwork is gorgeous, and it beautifully highlights the exquisite styling. It retains its original 3.9 litre matching numbers inline-six engine as per the Heritage Certificate and has been tuned for reliable road use whilst in our care. Undoubtably at club concours standard, only the original components have light patina, serving to make the car even more inviting to drive. The interior is a particular highlight of this marvellous Aston Martin. New carpets are integrated nicely into the otherwise original cabin, which is trimmed in luscious black leather remaining supple and beautifully presented. The steering wheel and dash are finished in black and grey respectively as original, and it of course retains all original instrumentation including the original Radiomobile sound system. The DB6 model has a 3¾ inches longer wheel base than its predecessor and means the rear seats are quite usable for additional passengers, making this a fine choice for touring and events alike. In keeping with the rest of this DB6, under-bonnet detailing is also very tidy with stunning chrome ancillaries, correct hardware and a trio of S.U. carburettors. The Aston ‘six’ runs and sounds as it should, emitting an evocative bark from the exhaust. Recent engine work includes unleaded conversion and bottom end overhaul complimented with a comprehensive inspection and full gasket set replacement.  The same goes for the undercarriage which, again, is fully detailed and exceptionally clean as one would expect.

This is a rare opportunity to acquire an Aston Martin which has been carefully restored by our expert team in-house. As expected the result of our work is a restoration executed beautifully, dialled in for on-the-button performance. With confidence we are able to offer an accompanying 12 month return to base warranty. The DB6 currently benefits from regular use, care, and maintenance at the hands of Aston Workshop. Following its restoration, the Aston Martin was shown at several prestigious events to represent the company, including The Goodwood Revival and the Techno Classica in Germany. Accompanying the motor car is a period tool set, historic photo library and invoices.
