Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 1970 Aston Martin DB6 MKII This delightful MKII DB6 was constructed in late 1970 and as such is one of the later examples of just 248 cars produced. It was originally registered UB3 on 16 th December 1970 by its first owner, a Mr Blume of Salcombe Devon, who cherished it for almost 40 years. During his ownership Mr Blume fastidiously maintained the car, as evidenced by the numerous invoices and items of correspondence included in the history files and only used it sparingly, which has contributed to its excellent overall condition. The car was only sold to its second owner in November of 2010 who decided that the time had come for a full restoration, which was duly undertaken by noted specialists Desmond Smail. Detailed invoices and photographs documenting this work accompany the car and attest to the high standard of the restoration. Recently acquired by JD Classics this car is currently in excellent overall condition and presents wonderfully in its Tudor Grey paintwork and Red interior. With full matching numbers, factory original electric windows, only two private owners and original mileage of just 45,121 miles it provides a fantastic

The car was repatriated in 1987 when it was b
Affectionately known as the T-Bird, the 1965 Ford Thunderbird was the fourth generation, its re-styling boasting a more square appearance but still retained a similar look to the previous generation with a comparable grill design and twin headlights. The 300 bhp V8 was mated to a three speed automatic transmission and disc brakes were added at the front. Sequential indicators resulted in the individual segments of the rear lights flashing from inside to out. Three versions were offered, hardtop, convertible and Landau. This 1965 Ford Thunderbird Landau was imported into the UK from the USA in circa 1991 and was UK registered on 20th July 1991. This T-Bird is powered by the Ford V8 power plant of 390 cubic inch (6400cc) and fuelled by a Holly carburettor. On a recent test, the Thunderbird drove well and certainly had a presence about it, the vendor informing us that it attracts a positive reaction wherever it goes. A workshop manual accompanies the Thunderbird as well as an MoT test certificate valid until January 2017. This T-Bird is largely original and un-molested and awaits a new owner/enthusiast to enjoy.
The production car changed little from the prototype, although the full-width rear bumper was dropped in favour of two part-bumpers curving round each corner, with overriders. Mechanics were basically stock Herald with the notable addition of front disc brakes. The engine was an 1,147cc four-cylinder with a pushrod OHV cylinder head and two valves per cylinder, mildly tuned for the Spitfire, fed by twin SU carburettors. Also from the Herald, came the rack and pinion steering and coil-and-wishbone front suspension, and at the rear, a single transverse-leaf swing axle arrangement. The body was bolted to a much-modified Herald chassis, the outer rails and the rear outriggers having been removed; little of the original Herald chassis design was left and the Spitfire used structural outer sills to stiffen its body tub. For 1964, an overdrive option was added to the four-speed manual gearbox to give more relaxed cruising. Wire wheels and a hard top were also available. In March 1965, the Spitfire Mk. II was launched. It was very similar to the Mk. I but featured a more highly tuned engine, through a revised camshaft design, a water-cooled intake manifold, and tubular exhaust manifold, in
The Bristol 408 was made between 1963 and 1966 and unusually for Bristol; a slightly revised version was launched during the middle of the model's production run in 1965 and known as the 408 Mark II. Mechanically, the Bristol 408 was identical to its predecessor the 407, which had been a major departure for Bristol with its use of a Chrysler V8 engine and automatic transmission. However, outwardly there were some major changes. The frontal styling of the 407 - which had been a carry-over from the six-cylinder 406 and 405 - was discarded and in its place was a rectangular grille with pronounced horizontal bars. Another major change was the turn indicator lamps, which on the 408 were wide and rectangular in contrast to the 407's round lamps. Due to safety concerns, the push-button layout of the automatic transmission was modified through the use of a safety lever to prevent an unwary person moving the car out of "Park". There were also rectangular instead of circular push-buttons for the gear selector in this version of the car. The transmission itself was now of cast alloy and was over 30 kilograms lighter than that of previous eight-cylinder Bristol's. The engine of the 407 and ori
Think of a pure out-and-out American pony car, designed to bring out the youth in everyone, powering you and your girl west down Route 66 and you could well have a Mustang coupé in your mind. The best-selling Mustang variant of all time with just 249 short of half a million rolling off Ford's production lines. The first production Mustang rolled off the assembly line in Dearborn, Michigan on 9th March 1964 and was introduced to the public at the New York World's Fair on 17th April 1964. It was, and remains, one of the most successful product launches in automotive history. The Mustang sold over one million units in its first 18 months on the market and its legend lives on with revised models still in production today after 50 years. With each revision, the Mustang saw an increase in overall dimensions and in engine power. Now could be the time to ignite your youth again as the new owner of this cool blue example. Supplied in good, solid order throughout, the vendor describes it as, "sound", with a good interior and a strong and reliable 289c.i. engine. Benefitting from a full one year MoT test certificate, this handsome example comes with a UK V5C registration document, represents
The Jaguar E-Type was manufactured between 1961 and 1975 to create a combination of good looks, high performance and competitive pricing. Established as an icon of 1960's motoring and a great success for Jaguar, more than 70,000 E-Types were sold during its lifespan. The Series I was introduced, initially for export only, in March 1961, with the domestic market launch coming four months later, in July of that year. The cars at this time used the triple SU carburettor, 3.8-Litre, six cylinder XK engine from the XK150's. The first 300 cars built had flat floors and external bonnet latches and are considered to be rare and more valuable. After that, the floors were dished to provide more leg room and the bonnet latches moved inside the car, whilst underneath the bonnet, the engine size increased to 4.2-litres in October 1964. This righthand drive, 1965 Jaguar E-Type Series I Roadster, was manufactured on 19th March 1965 and delivered to Henlys in Manchester on 31st March with its new keepers being Ogden & Lawson Ltd. of Workington. The Heritage Certificate that accompanies the car also confirms that the car still retains its original registration number CNB 869C and was first register

Aston Martin DB6 Mk 2 Saloon to “Vantage” Specification (1970) 5 Speed Gearbox: Correct Matching Numbers Chassis No. DB6MK2FI /4224 /R Engine No. 400/4537FI 1 of only 46 Cars Produced The final production series for the DB6 being the “Mk II” was the swan song of the DB variants produced by Newport Pagnell. The specification shared many parts with the DBS such as the wheels and tyres, hubs and seats so as to help to minimize costs, the wider tyres are accommodated by slight flares over the wheel arches. The DB6 differed from its predecessors in having a longer wheelbase which, at 8′ 5¾”, was 3¾” longer than that of theDB5. This meant more room for rear passengers, which made the DB6 more of a family man’s car and helped it sell better than the earlier models in the series. The bodywork was distinctive, with a slightly higher roofline than the DB4 and DB5, and featured an aerodynamically efficient abbreviated ‘Kamm’ tail. Our correct matching numbers DB6 Mk 2 “Vantage” is documented by Aston Martin Lagonda Limited as being one of only 46 cars to be originally manufactured with the AE Brico fuel injection system although this was not properly developed and virtually all of these cars were later converted to Weber carburettors as our example has been. A significant improvement over the already impressive 285 bhp of the standard DB6, according to the factory, this car now produces a reputed 325BHP and is presented in this ultimate specification together with an upgraded modern five-speed manual gearbox for superlative driving pleasure. Supplied new on the 16th February 1970 via Wharf Garages Ltd this outstanding example retains its colour combination of Verde Aqua metallic with Pigskin Connolly VM Hide interior as initially supplied new by the works. On Hexagon Classics acquisition, we commissioned a comprehensive mechanical overhaul by Marque specialists Pugsley & Lewis and a complete interior re-trim using the correct Connolly Vaumol hides. Accompanying the car in the chassis file: •Drivers instruction hand book •Original BMIHT certificate •Pictorial restoration pictures •Tool Roll •Aston Martin DB6 MKII brochure •Aston Martin DB6 Vantage road test We are delighted to offer for sale this ultra-rare DB6 Mk 2 to Vantage specification, one of only forty-six cars ever produced and presented in commensurately superb condition throughout.

Aston Martin DB6 Coupé (1967) Right Hand Drive: Automatic Transmission Chassis No: DB6/3241/R Engine No. 400/3313 Long Term Ownership 33 years Correct Matching Numbers: Of all the cars ever produced by Aston Martin, the DB6 is arguably the ultimate development of the David Brown “gentleman’s express” concept of a Grand Touring motor car. The DB6 continued the attractive styling of covered headlamp nose, while the back ended in an aero-efficient “Kamm tail” which featured a small upswept spoiler. The chassis was extended 3.75-inches in order to accommodate for the first time a pair of usable rear seats and the body panels were, as always with an Aston, of hand-formed aluminium. The new DB6 also featured enhanced options to include; power-assisted Girling disc brakes and a limited slip differential. The interior coddled the lucky occupants in the finest Connolly hides and Wilton wool carpet – quite the anomaly when one considers that all this limo luxury travelled zero to 60 miles per hour in under seven seconds and had a top speed of 148 miles per hour! # 3241/R was supplied new on the 10th November 1967 by Rose & Young Ltd, Caterham Surrey to Mr N Jaweather of Footcray, Kent. The last owner, a prominent Italian lawyer & a resident of Rome, kept & enjoyed the Aston as his daily motorcar for over 30 years until Hexagon Classics acquisition in the summer of 2015! The car was commissioned to be built to the following specification and options, as the car is still presented today. •Exterior: Dawn Blue (Rolls-Royce Colour Option) we understand one of only 3 cars manufactured to this specification •Interior: Connolly Grey Hide VM3393. Borg Warner automatic gearbox, heated rear screen, chromium wire wheels, power operated aerial, three eared spinners, factory fitted power assisted steering & front headrests.
