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…’

    Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 1967 Aston Martin DB6 Mark 1 Vantage Volante RHD This DB6 is an exceedingly rare motorcar being one of just 29 examples built with the desirable Volante drop head body and finished to Vantage specification. The Vantage models featured a number of upgrades including power steering, power operated hood, electric windows, front seat belts as well as an uprated engine fitted with three twin choke Weber DCOE 45s, which delivered an increased power output of 325 bhp versus the 282 bhp of the standard model. The example offered here is particularly important in view of its well documented ownership history that includes the legendary composer and conductor Leonard Bernstein. According to the factory build sheets this car was originally supplied in the U.K. to Mr B.M. Lee of Hadleywood in April 1967.

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

  • 189 - 1965 Sunbeam Tiger Mk.I

    POA POA

    Inspired by the AC Cobra that was effectively the British AC Ace sports car powered by the large American Ford 4.2 litre, V8, the Sunbeam Tiger first saw the light of day in 1964. Based upon the Rootes Group, Sunbeam Alpine, the Tiger - with the Ford power plant slotted into the engine bay, it became what is surely one of motoring's true 'wolf in sheep's clothing'. Precise handling was retained by keeping the Alpine's rack and pinion steering with stunning performance due not only to the muscle V8 but also due to the lightweight Alpine shell. This handsome Sunbeam Tiger has been restored a number of years ago by Stratton Motor Company who are the Aston Martin Dealers in Norwich. She has been painted in Rolls-Royce royal blue and trimmed in Connolly cream hide, Wilton carpets and a mohair hood. The engine has been rebuilt and has covered circa 1,000 miles since the rebuild. Recently, a new steering rack and pinion has also been fitted. With a V8 mated to a manual gearbox, the performance of this Tiger is impressive to say the least. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a full years MoT test certificate together with a history folder, this iconic 60s sports car represents a

  • 211 - 1965 Ford Cortina Mk. I 1500 GT

    POA POA

    The Cortina was Ford's mass-market compact car and sold extremely well. It was produced in five generations; the Mk. I through to the Mk. V, although officially the last one was called the Cortina 80. With variants of the Cortina reaching sales of over one million, each successive model proved more popular than its predecessor. Such was its fame in the UK, that the BBC Two documentary series Arena once devoted an entire programme to the car and its enthusiasts. In response to the huge success of the Mini, Ford responded not with a small car but with a larger family offering which they could sell in large numbers. The result was the Cortina; a distinctively styled car aimed at buyers of the Morris Oxford and Vauxhall Victor, launched on 20th September 1962. With eye-catching modern styling, it was originally branded as the Consul Cortina until a modest facelift in 1964, after which, it was sold simply as the Cortina but with four trim levels; Standard, Deluxe, Super and GT. This Cortina GT was restored a number of years ago and presents in excellent condition today, resplendent in its original colour of Ermine white with the Lotus Cortina green flash having been added later.

  • 182 - 1965 Austin Mini Cooper Mk.1

    POA POA

    In 1959, a new concept in car design was born, designed by Alex Issigonis with a monocoque shell, transversely mounted engine and front wheel drive, the new 'Mini', as it was commonly known, soon became popular across a broad spectrum of the population. The potential for competition use was soon realised by John Cooper and, although Alex Issigonis was less keen, BMC were finally persuaded and worked together with John Cooper culminating in the birth of the Austin Mini Cooper and the Morris Mini Cooper in 1961. Victories in the 1964, 1965 and 1967 Monte Carlo Rallies set the Mini on the road to fame but probably the greatest publicity was gained from their (somewhat unfair) disqualification for lighting irregularities in the 1966 event after coming in 1st, 2nd and 3rd. First registered 12th August 1965 this original Mk.1 Austin Mini Cooper is in lovely condition throughout and remarkably original. Recently when taken for an MOT, the mechanic indeed complimented the car on its originality, good body and mechanicals, a credit to the previous ownership. In 2016 this Mk.1 car was subject to an engine rebuild and suspension upgrade to dry suspension, this included correct Hi / Lo kit and

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

    POA POA

    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.

    POA POA

    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

    POA POA

    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.

    POA POA

    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.
