Aston Martin DB6 Mk. I

See all the Images for this Car
Obviously the DB6 is a more advanced version of Aston's DB5 to include more wind-tunnel development, improved airflow through the air oil cooler as well as a few more external styling cues such as the bumpers. Mechanically, the engine was similar with three SU carburettors fitted as standard as well as a number of items that a customer could specify at no extra cost such as a Power-Lok limited slip differential and chrome wire wheels.

First delivered to the first owner, Mr. Morris of Oak Hill Park in London on 16th July 1968, it was serviced regularly by the supplying dealership, Broadway Autos in its early life although this latterly changed as the car moved from owner to owner. Mr Lankshear, an AMOC member from 1973 – 1981, then owned the car followed by Aston Martin Sales in Sloane Street, London from May 1983 then to Thomas Lundstrom of Salisbury in July of the same year.

There is little documentary record of Mr Lundstom’s ownership until he took the car to Aston Martin specialist, Desmond Smail, in August 1992 when a substantial recommissioning of the car took place. That same dealer was instrumental in the sale of the car to a new owner, Stephen Wainwright, in 1994. The history of the car since 1994 is provided by a combination of service invoices and hand-written detail from the owner’s log.

After a substantial period with the car stored in the owner’s garage, a comprehensive list of remedial work was carried out on the car to allow completion of an MoT test before the car was offered for sale by noted Aston Martin specialist’s, Byron International, in 2015.

An agreement to purchase the car was reached over December 2015/January 2016 with the current owner after a road test & report by Newlands Motors. After purchase, they carried out extensive remedial work and the car was transported to its new owner’s home in Aberdeen. It was then put into the care of Classic Restorations (Scotland) Ltd who undertook a thorough overhaul which included replacing the automatic gearbox with an uprated ZF item, re-fettling the sunroof, addressing the paintwork and some mechanical refurbishment as well as re-upholstering the seating, front & rear. All this work represented an investment by the owner of over £115,000 and has obviously substantially improved the car.

The DB6 is acknowledged as the ultimate version of the original Turing design and remains hugely popular as a result. This example benefit from a sympathetic and substantial investment from the previous owner and thus the hard word has been taken care of right down to the instillation of a modern, classic-style, Becker Mexico stereo. It is simply ready now for the next lucky custodian to use it as it was designed for.
