Today the aim is to offer the maximum of luxury and refinement as well as the ultimate in road performance. The minor barbarities of so many great sports cars of the past are no longer acceptable – at least in the hand built models now leaving Newport Pagnell. Obviously such a car as the DB6 is expensive and exclusive but the value matches the price.’ – Autocar, 1966. The DB6 was by far the most refined of the early DB models, offering more interior space and adequate headroom for both front and rear passengers. In 1958 Aston Martin introduc

Aware that increased headroom and legroom was required to extend the car’s appeal to a wider market, Aston Martin lengthened the wheelbase by 4” and undertoo

Chequered Flag International is pleased to offer this 1967 Aston Martin DB6 Vantage in Metallic Grey with Dark Blue leather interior. Matching numbers engine (#400/2601/V). Good quality restoration done a few years but not many miles ago. Transmission upgraded to a Steel Wings Tremec 5 speed. This Aston was built with optional A/C and upgraded with a modern compressor during restoration. The 4.0 liter straight-six with its triple side-draft Webers produces 325 hp. Originally Fiesta Red, recently changed to its current Metallic Grey. This DB6 is lovely. The mostly original interior is excellent and appears to be the only area of the car not fully covered in the restoration. The leather seats are soft and have just the right amount of patina, giving credence to the 48k miles on the odometer. The carpets look new. This is a U.S model, left-hand drive Vantage with its original matching engine and factory A/C (see Heritage Certificate below). We encourage inspections. Please feel free to call us with any questions. Sales tax and license fees dues if delivered in California.

Launched at the London Motor Show in October 1965, the DB6 was a direct development of the DB5 and featured improved aerodynamics and a more generous specification. Powered by the same 4.0-litre DOHC ‘straight-six’ Aston Martin engine, notable differences included a longer wheelbase; a Kamm-styled rear spoiler to improve high-speed stability; a higher roofline; quarter bumpers and an oil-cooler scoop. A stunning example of an iconic British grand tourer. First registered on 1st November 1967, the car is finished in Silver and retains its original blue leather upholstery and carpets. The car has recently undergone a bare metal re-spray and a fresh engine overhaul. Also comes complete with extensive history. Built towards the end of 1967, our car is original right-hand drive and fitted with a ZF 5-speed manual gearbox.
This DB6 Vantage was ordered by and delivered new to a Dr N Power, via H R Owen. It was supplied with the Vantage engine, 3.73:1 final drive, limited slip differential and chromed wire wheels (build sheet on file). The Aston was serviced by the factory up to 1972, the details being recorded on build sheet's reverse. Correspondence on file from Aston Martin to Dr Power in July 1974 details works required totaling £2,000. Dr Power then entrusted the DB6 to renowned marque specialists R S Williams Ltd, who carried out the works. R S Williams subsequently serviced the car (in 1981/82), which included fitting a low-ratio steering rack. A smaller wood-rim steering wheel has been fitted also. In May 1990 the Aston was given to Pugsley & Lewis for a full restoration. The car was stripped to bare metal, all chassis rot cut out, new sills fitted and then re-sprayed, while the engine, gearbox rear axle and suspension were rebuilt. These works were completed in June 1992 at a cost of circa £30,000. R S Williams serviced the DB6 in 1996 and again in July/August 2008, the latter bill (for £8,000) detailing a front suspension rebuild, general maintenance, ignition system overhaul, carburettor tun

Testing it in a wind tunnel for the first time in February 1965, showed the need for work to counteract the test car’s rear end lift. So the final development phases saw a DB5 chassis, suitably lengthened and titled MP219, with a rear spoiler and abbreviated Kamm tail that Aston Martin had previously incorporated in sports racers. The decision was made to progress MP 219 as the Aston Martin DB6 although its de Dion rear axle was replaced with a live axle on cost grounds. So the new car, announced at the London Motor Show in October 1965, had a wheelbase extended by 3.75 inches with the extra inserted just ahead of the rear wheel arches and this allowed the roofline to be raised by an inch, while a furt
First delivered in 1970, this Aston Martin DB6 MK2 has had only 3 owners from new, and has been cherished by the same fastidious owner for the last 27 years. Well known in the Aston Martin world, it’s an excellent driver and looks absolutely sublime in Peacock Blue metallic with contrasting Natural Hide and matching carpets. This "matching numbers" example comes complete with a very impressive history file that not only includes photographs of the extensive refurbishment but lots of invoices, MOTs, tax discs and an original owner’s handbook! Although not fully restored, it is in lovely, well cared for condition and can be easily enhanced and upgraded, depending on the new owner’s requirements. Only 220 of this particular model were made by Aston Martin, making it a rare and sought after example. Coupled with the fact that this particular Aston has been maintained and driven with such care and attention, make this a most desirable DB6 MK2 indeed at a very competitive price. As such, we anticipate a great deal of interest. Viewing & test drive can be arranged for any day of the week including weekends (by appointment only). +44 (0)1207 233 525

Right hand steering. Power Steering, Air Conditioning, Harvey Bailey Handling Kit, Turrino Wire Wheels, Folding Log Book, British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate Background The roots of the DB6 can be found back in 1960 when Tadek Marek cut the platform chassis of a DB4 ahead of the heelboard and inserted a new 3.75 inch (92mm) section of metalwork with the intention of creating a car that would carry four rather than two adults. This car entitled DP/200/1 and registered 4 YMC became a development workhorse for the DB5 replacement. Aston Martin rejected their Touring’s design proposals and focussed back on 4 YMC testing it in a wind tunnel for the first time in February 1965. That showed the need for work to counteract the test car’s rear end lift. So the final development phases saw a DB5 chassis, suitably lengthened and titled MP219, with a rear spoiler and abbreviat

This rare DB6 Mk 2 Vantage Coupe has been in the ownership of a Long Island, New York collector for the past several years having been sold and maintained in the past by Autosport Designs Inc. In August 1969, just before the introduction of the all new DBSV8, the last in a long line of classic Aston Martin grand touring cars was announced – the DB6 Mark 2. An improvement on the already well-received DB6, the Mark II was equipped with slight fender flares on both the front and rear wheel arches to accommodate the new DBS sized wire wheels and tires, this also gave the DB6 MK II a wider appearance. For the interior, the Mark II received more comfortable seats, sourced from the DBS, making an already capable grand touring car even more appealing. This DB6 Mk 2 has beautifully restored by Aston Martin specialists in both the UK and Canada, it was converted properly from original RHD to LHD specifications by well-respected Aston Martin marque specialist Adrian Johnson’s Post
