Description

A five-speed manual transmission model fitted with the optional power-assisted steering, this DB6 Volante was first registered on 9th May 1968. Believed its first owner, one Stuart Stanton of London NW1, kept the car until 1976 when it was purchased on 16th February that year by the second owner, Mr Anthony Hitch of London NW10. The current (third) owner acquired it on 20th January 1981. ‘TYF 942F’ comes with comprehensive history file of all bills for service and restoration work totalling well over £40,000, covering the period from 1977 to date. All mechanical work has been done by official Aston Martin Service Dealers, principally Ian Mason and most recently Chiltern Aston following Ian Mason’s retirement.
‘TYF 942F’ has had a successful concours history as documented in the Aston Martin Register, specifically: 1982 Newport Pagnell Concours, 2nd in class; 1982 Hendon Concours, Club Trophy; 1983 Hendon Concours, 5th in Elite Class; 1989 Silverstone Horsfall Concours, Volz Trophy; and
