1966 Aston Martin DB6
Location: United Kingdom
The distinguished DB6 we are pleased to offer, was manufactured in 1966 finished in Pacific Blue with Connolly Black VM8500 hide interior. Fitted with 5 speed manual gearbox, Chrome wire wheels, Heated screen, 3 eared hub spinners and power operated aerial, as retained today.
Born to succeed the fabled Aston Martin DB5, the DB6 answered some criticism of its predecessor in offering a more spacious interior with genuine 2+2 seating capacity and increased boot space, with improved stability at speed due to its kamm tail design. A consummate GT of the day, in production for 4 years, the DB6’s successful formula found favour with many an Industrialist and rising rock stars enjoying the pleasures of ownership.
With early services and repairs recorded at Aston Martin’s own service department, in 2014 and having recorded a mere 57,000 miles, the car was entrusted to respected Aston Martin specialists for complete restoration where necessary. Works encompassed restoration to the chassis and aluminium body, complete rebuilds and overhauls to the engine, suspension and brakes, attention to the vehicle electrics and inspection and attention to the gearbox and rear axle assemblies all prior to a bare metal repaint, new bumpers and chromed wire wheels. Subsequently the interior was dismantled, seats rebuilt and re trimmed in late 2019, before being delivered to it last owner, a discerning collector who specified Connolly Vaumol Navy Blue hides, to complement the Pacific Blue exterior. A superb combination.
Accompanying the car is a leather-bound history file, containing early factory service records, restoration invoices with detailed photography, an owner statement of mileage and majority of MoT certificates from 1973, confirming the low mileage covered. A copy of manufacturers build sheet and DB6 owners handbook, spare keys, toolkit, jack and mallet.
