Notes

According to the accompanying Aston Martin heritage certificate, this DB6 Vantage was delivered new in November 1968 to Eton Garages of Windsor. The extremely desirable factory specification included the Vantage engine, manual transmission, exterior paintwork finished in the classic Silver Birch made famous by James Bond’s DB5, black leather interior trim, chrome wire wheels with three eared spinners and a heated rear window. A comprehensive restoration was carried out by the third recorded owner, Chris Potter, in the early 1990’s which included a body off restoration of the chassis, restoration of the aluminium bodywork using panels from Bodylines Limited, reconditioning of the suspension, brakes, engine, transmission and interior trim. Following restoration, the Aston Martin passed through the hands of three further enthusiasts with the history file showing servicing and maintenance from recognised specialists including Oselli and Hofmann’s of Henley. In 2010 the DB6 was purchased by a collector in Vreden, a town in North Western Germany close to the border with the Netherlands. While in Germany the DB6 was very well cared for as proven by the invoices in the history file for regular servicing and maintenance including the reconditioning of the transmission. Recently repatriated to the UK, the DB6 is very attractive in its original colour of Silver Birch with a delightful patina to the black leather interior. Importantly the engine block is marked with the same serial number which is listed as the original on the heritage certificate. In addition to aforementioned invoices and receipts, the accompanying history file contains copies of registration documentation showing just 7 owners since 1976, MoT certificates which indicate that only around 15,000 miles have been covered by the Aston Martin since 1995, and an original copy of the Aston Martin DB6 owner’s handbook. The odometer currently reads just less than 6,000 miles which is believed to indicate a total mileage of just 106,000. The Aston Martin DB6 has proven to be very much in demand among collectors since it is visually very close to the iconic DB5 yet more spacious and practical and significantly more affordable than its predecessor. The DB6 Vantage is a rare car with only around 417 built, 268 of which were right hand drive, according to an article in the Aston Martin Owner’s Club magazine. This example is in very nice condition overall and with an extremely desirable specification and extensive provenance and so would make a very usable collector’s item and is also an excellent candidate for preparation to concours standards.
