Known History

 This 1966 Aston Martin DB6 Vantage Saloon is an extremely original matching numbers example with only three owners since new. Finished in elegant California Sage, this car is absolutely stunning. In the past 27 years the car has only been driven 200 miles. 

 

 

The car was ordered new by Arthur White of Wolverhampton, United Kingdom. A well-to-do gentleman, Mr. White wanted a grand tourer so he ordered the unique specification of the more powerful Vantage motor for greater speed and the optional automatic transmission for ease of use and comfort. According to the buff log book, Mr. White first registered the car on April 7th, 1966.

 

 

<br style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px;" />Mr. White was fond of road trips and often took the DB6 down to Dover, rode the ferry to Calais and then be drove to Paris for a weekend on the town. Wear in the passenger side carpet is evidence of the many rides taken by Mrs. White to the next dinner or engagement while wearing her stilettos. According to British MOT Test Certificates on file, by 1976 Whites had covered nearly 52,000 miles in the DB6 and steadily continued their pace of about 2,000 miles a year until the Mr. White's passing in 1984 at which point the car was briefly transferred to his nephew before being acquired by the present owner in 1986.<br style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px;" /><br style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px;" />Upon acquisition, the DB6 was shipped to the East Coast in September of '86. Since arriving Stateside 27 years ago, only 200 miles have been covered with the clock currently showing about 67,700 original miles. Finished in beautiful California Sage over black hides, the car continues to show well today. <br style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px;" /><br style="padding: 0px; margin: 0px;" />Currently in running order, it's very minimal use in the past nearly three decades would warrant some mechanical refurbishment before undertaking a longer journey. But saving that, it appears as a nicely preserved example of one of Aston Martin's legendary models in its most powerful specification. Don't miss the rare opportunity to own the ultimate Grand Touring car.
