Aston Martin DB6: Buying guide and review (1965-1970)

Aston Martin DB6: Buying guide and review (1965-1970) Classic and Performance Car
Aston Martin DB6 buying guide Aston Martin DB6 buying guide Aston Martin DB6 buying guide Aston Martin DB6 buying guide
The DB6, when it was launched in the autumn of 1965, held out the promise of 150mph motoring for the family man – and this in the days when Britain’s motorways had no upper speed limit. The thought of racing up the M1 from London to the shires at 100mph-plus in the latest Aston Martin must have been a very seductive one indeed. 
 
The definitive Aston shape was born with the DB4 in 1958, the work of the design house Touring in Italy, with its Superleggera (‘superlightweight’) aluminium bodywork wrapped around a light superstructure and steel platform. The DB4 was a sensation with fabulous looks and excellent performance from its 3.7-litre Tadek Marek-designed all-alloy, twin-cam inline six-cylinder engine. The ultra-rare DB4GT and Zagato models are the ultimate collector Aston Martins, adding the all-important motor racing provenance. 
 
The DB4 evolved into the DB5 in 1963, with more power from its enlarged 4.0-litre engine and a five-speed gearbox. Again the DB5 was raced and the Bond franchise turned the model into solid gold (sorry) in terms of desirability, even if most were usually painted the aforementioned silver. 
 
Once again Aston at Newport Pagnell evolved the car, this time into the DB6 – but this was in 1965, straight into the jaws of the newfangled and very well-priced Jaguar E-type. Though blessed with similar power, the lighter E-type was a whole generation ahead of the DB6 in terms of engineering, with its lightweight tub and independent suspension all-round. And by ’65 Jaguar had improved the E-type with a proper, modern synchromesh gearbox and more grunt from its enlarged 4.2-litre straight-six.
 
By comparison, the more spacious DB6 remained very conservative and almost old-fashioned, even though it had adopted a slightly flashy ‘Kamm tail’ to aid high-speed stability, which some Aston types found rather outré. Changes to the DB6 included an increase in the wheelbase to 101.5 inches, a higher roofline, that tail, power steering, plus the options of air-conditioning and an automatic gearbox. The previously sporting Aston approach had moved firmly into Gran Turismo territory, and the gorgeous DB4 and 5 were very hard acts to follow. But against 1023 DB5s and 1210 DB4s, a total of  1967 examples of the DB6 were sold over a long seven-year run.
 

Which DB6 to buy?

 
To start, it’s worth pointing out that while the DB5 had been, in reality, no more than another evolution of the DB4, the DB6 was a genuinely new model. By adding almost four inches to the wheelbase and raising the roofline over the rear seats, it was now a passable four-seater. Shortening the twin trailing suspension arms on each side freed up some extra seat width, too. 
 
Under the new skin, the basic structure and mechanical package were pretty much carried straight over from the DB5. Remarkably, though, the Vantage version of the 4-litre straight-six could now be specified at no extra cost. With triple Webers and slightly racier cams, it gave 325bhp (up from the 314bhp of the DB5 Vantage) while the regular engine made 282bhp on SUs, this ‘softer’ state of tune being marketed as more suited to town driving. 
 
Also available at no extra cost was a Powr-Lok limited-slip differential and the choice of either Borg-Warner three-speed automatic or ZF five-speed manual transmission. Aston claimed a top speed of over 150mph, while most tests reckoned a maximum of around 145mph with 0-60 in circa 7sec with the manual ’box was representative. 
 
Best spec? Manual ’box, definitely. The auto was a pretty dreadful device even in the late ’60s, power-sapping and ponderous. It would maybe suite a Volante for just pottering around the lanes. Alternatively, Works can fit a modern four-speed self-shifter. If you’re thinking of buying an original auto and converting it to manual, though, be warned, the manual ’boxes are virtually unobtainable. 
 
In late 1969 the Mk2 version arrived with lightly flared wheelarch lips to accommodate wider wheels and tyres (shared with the recently introduced DBS model). Power steering was now standard and there was the option of electronic fuel injection, a first on a British car. The AE-Brico system was reckoned to give better fuel consumption though no more power than the carb-fed Vantage engine. In fact it proved troublesome, and most have long since been converted to triple Webers. 
 
The DB6 Volante was launched at the 1966 London Motor Show. Only 140 were built, and of those just 29 were Vantages, so finding one of these can be difficult, and expensive! 
 
The Mk2 with its bigger wheels and tyres and flared arches – and that shorter production run – is also favoured, as is the Vantage engine (many regular DB6s have been converted to ‘Vantage spec’ but they tend not to have the correct camshafts and use Spanish reproduction carburettors. Referencing the chassis number will quickly confirm the car’s original spec. 
 
Worthwhile upgrades include adding electric power steering, while replacing the rear lever-arm dampers with modern coil-overs improves both ride and handling. Thus equipped, a DB6 can be the equal of any of its Newport Pagnell brethren. 
 
If you think that a regular DB6 is just too common, and not quite practical enough, then there is of course the option of finding a Shooting Brake model. Six were initially built by coachbuilder Harold Radford with a full tailgate and the same 282bhp and 325bhp engine options of the saloon. A further three Shooting Brakes were built by FLM Panelcraft, with slightly more awkward styling and a split tailgate. Prices will be significantly higher than a regular DB6, if and when one of these is offered on the open market.

Common problems

 
• These are 50-year-old cars now, so unless they’ve had a recent restoration or they've been incredibly well looked after, they’re going to need restoring. 
 
• The construction was essentially the same as for DB4 and 5 – a steel platform chassis, to which a tubular steel framework was attached, in turn supporting aluminium coachwork. Any – or all of it – can rust, particularly the steel platform. 
 
• Restoration costs, consequently, are just the same as for a DB4 or 5. Independent specialist Desmond J Smail charges £200-250,000 plus VAT. If you want a Works body-off restoration, you’re currently looking at £350,000. Plus VAT. 
 
• A well-documented history is highly prized, and will always add significant value to any DB6. Along with a great history, you can now get Aston Martin to verify the authenticity of any car under its Assured Provenance scheme.
 
• Even cars that have been restored need careful examination. If the doors don’t shut cleanly there’s something wrong, particularly if it’s had a lot of chassis work done. 
 
• Look for signs of accident damage. There’s a lot of bodging been done over the years, even as late as the ’90s. 
 
• Mechanically, DB6s are generally robust. Engine-wise look out for oil and coolant leaks from the block and cylinder head. 
 
• A lot of people fit the later 205-section tyres and wider wheels onto Mk1 cars. Although when jacked up they may appear to rotate freely, under load or cornering they foul the rear bump-stop brackets. They upset the handling a bit too, and they don’t look right. 
 
• Cars that don't tend to get a lot of use can develop minor issues such as slow or completely failed electric windows. This is the down to condensation and corrosion of the motor contacts. Although repairs are generally simple, it's best to check that everything is functioning correctly. 
 

Model history

 
October 1965: Aston Martin reveals the first DB6 saloon at the London motor show.
October 1965: Aston Martin Volante launched. Although based on the DB5, this 'short chassis' car featured DB6 bumpers, tail lights, oil cooler and leather stitching. The first car to wear the Volante name. 
October 1966: Updated DB6 Volante model goes on sale.
October 1967: Much more modern looking DBS goes on sale. DB6 continues to be produced along side. 
July 1969: Mk2 DB6 introduced, with flared wheel arches and a number of improvements taken from the DBS, and the option of AE Brico fuel injection. 
November 1970: Production comes to an end.

Summary and prices 

 
Unsurprisingly, the most expensive models are the Volantes. Reckon on more than double the price of any other DB6. The saloons, on the other hand, are rather more attainable. You can still find very presentable examples for around £250,000, rising to £300,000 for a car with good history, but the crucial thing is to investigate the car’s condition beneath the glossy coachwork. 
 
As specialist Desmond Smail says: ‘Even if you’re paying £250-300k for a DB6, if you want to get it fully restored, it’s still going to cost you at least £200k on top. You might as well pick the worst one you can find for £130k! The car you finish up with is still going to be worth the same.’ 
 
It could be some time before you might see a return on your investment, so you’ve got to really want a DB6 – and want to keep it and enjoy it – to be able to justify this sort of outlay. No harm in that, of course, and as Smail says: ‘The values will keep rising, so you’ll get your money back eventually. Look at DB5s, getting close to a million pounds now for the best…’

    Variant: DB6/4004/R Auto 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. # 4004/R was supplied new on the 28th April 1969 by Plough Motors Ltd of Stonehouse, Gloucester to Mr H.R J.Feeney of Feckenham, Worcestershire. The car was commissioned to be built with the following options: Borg Warner automatic gearbox, heated rear screen, chromium wire wheels, power operated aerial, three eared spinners & factory fitted power assisted steering. The motorcar was presented with the following documentation: Factory Build Specification Sheet BMIHT Heritage Certificate Original Drivers Instruction Hand Book Original Road Test Reports Contemporary service & restoration invoices from 1976 The DB6 was presented in outstanding condition and has benefited from a freshly completed restoration in 2014 which has included: Bare metal repaint in Pewter Re-upholstered Seating in Natural Beige Hide New Carpets in Tan Mechanical overhaul by marque specialists

    Presented in original and glorious Dubonnet Rosso, our car presents very pleasingly with just enough patina to tell a story. Too often restored cars can overstep the original brief and lose their soul. Not true here. Our car was the subject of extensive restorative work in the mid-1990s by noted Aston Martin restorer, Vic Bass, of London. From the mid-1980s to 2013 Vic was entrusted to restore and refresh 2813/R, the result of his and some specialist labours still being very evident today. These works included to strip and finish the floorpans and chassis, to strip and rebuild the front and rear suspension and axle, refit petrol and brake lines, refit exhaust, to make new inner wing panels and fit, and to present to Spray-Tec of Northampton for a full repaint in September of 1992. All this is receipted, and there’s plenty more besides. In the same period, the current engine and the then automatic gearbox were also overhauled, although, since this time, in December 2014, the far superior Tremec five-speed manual gearbox has been fitted at a cost of some £10,000, transforming the drivability of this car no end and proving why this has become a common and appreciated upgrade. The accompanying BMIHT certificate confirms Dubonnet as original colour, with natural trim to the interior as it still sports today, with optional extras of chrome roadwheels, heated rear window, three-ear hub caps, powered aerial, LSD, and Avon turbospeed GT tyres. First sold on 8th February 1967 via HR Owen of Romford, our Aston Martin has had just five keepers from new, the latest since 2013. The subject of regular maintenance yet used only sparingly in current ownership, 2813/R has very recent MOT to April 2019 (with no advisories) and is offered at a very competitive price in today’s market with nothing to do for the immediate future but to enjoy…

The original colour was "Silver Birch" with a "Dark Blue" interior, and is today in an elegant dark green, with beige upholstery. In 1990, when it was registered in Texas on behalf of Mr Cook, the car was imported into Switzerland before it caught the fancy of an Alsatian enthusiast. On its arrival, the car was greeted by a big party in its honor! A few months later, it was sent to Munich, to an Aston Martin restoration specialist, Hieber Automobile GmbH. The body and interior have been completely redone and a phone was installed, which in 1991 was very exceptional indeed. The very impressive invoice totals 130,000 DM and explains the extremely high quality of the restoration. Passionate about the restoration of his car, the collector then used his DB6 Vantage very sparingly and sold the car due to a lack of use. Thus, 25 years after the restoration job, the car still looks very beautiful, and is complimented by a light patina.

    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

    Chassis Number: DB6Mk2/4104/R Engine Number: 400/4302 UK Registration Number: AUB 107 J Date of first reg: 31st December 1970 Exterior colour: Gold Metallic Hood: Interior colour: Blue Leather Current Odometer reading: 116,047 Mileage Warranty: Steering: Right Transmission: Manual Options: Background Background: After rejecting proposals for a replacement for the DB5 from Touring of Milan, the decision was made by Aston Martin to focus on their own development car, registered, 4 YMC. 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

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

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 f

    --Moss Green with Black leather interior and Black carpets, Restored, Original Color Combination, Matching Numbers, 1 of 71 rare factory Vantage specifications, 4.2 liter, 5 speed ZF transmission, Air conditioning. 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
