Built on 19/07/1966 this incredible DB6 was sold to its first owner by Lex Garages on 03/02/67 as outlined by a copy of the original delivery invoice and factory build card, which also outlines the factory options list of Dubonnet Rosso paint, Conolly VM8500 leather, Borg Warner 3 speed gearbox, 3 ear hubcaps, power operated ariel and a heated rear screen. A vast and detailed history file tracks ownership and servicing throughout the cars life, with 7 owners detailed in a copy on the original ownership log and V5s and service invoices dating back to 1975.

The current owner purchased the DB6 in 2004 and set about an extensive restoration of the vehicle between 2005-2007, having the aluminium body professionally restored by specialists Autopshop before going to marque specialists Ian Mason and RS Williams taking on the re-assembly over the 2 year period. A full photographic log of the restoration accompanies £40k+ of invoices that breaks down the extensive list of parts and labour the car was subject to.

A full engine rebuild was carried out in 2013 at 78,548 miles with, invoices totalling over £10k, and has covered less than 3,000 miles since the work was completed. Maintenance of the car since the restoration has been taken car of by Aston Martin Works, with invoices totalling over 20k outlining replacement timing chains and renewed the suspension/braking systems in 2015/16 to ensure this DB6 was kept in perfect working order. The car also visited RS Williams in September 2017 for further maintenance, which included a service and MOT, before the car went into long term storage.

Present with the car is the comprehensive history file, photographic record of the restoration as well as the original sales invoice.
