The second owner, Mr. Geoffrey Jones, acquired the car in November of 1976.
Many of invoices for service work in his period of ownership are addressed to Mr. Jones at the Motor Agents Association indicating senior involvement and a clue to the through maintenance of the car in his 30 years of stewardship.
The MOT history of the car further indicates that the mileage shown on the car can be considered as a good indication of the overall use of the car.
A large part of the maintenance was carried out by Aston Martin Specialist, four Ashes Garage based in Stratford upon Avon and it was through their introduction that the cars was sold in 2006 to the third owner, a Mr. R.W.Ball, a Stratford resident.
He chose Four Ashes Garage to conduct a full nut and bolt restoration of the car, meticulous in the planning and execution.
The car was finished in Alveston Red Metallic with new cream leather and bespoke seat belts front and rear.
With the engine, gearbox, suspension and axle all part of the refurbishment, the end product was a DB 6 that runs as well as it gets.
Significant work commitments meant that the owner felt that there was not enough time to enjoy the results of his investment and he made the reluctant decision to sell the car.
Our client saw this beautiful and rare manual DB 6 and fell in love in 2015. He used the car sparingly for trips outside London in good weather.
The car has been looked after by the renowned Aston Martin Specialists, Nicolas Mee.
Once again work commitments mean that he is transferring to the continent and that is why he is considering parting from his pride and joy.
Clearly evolved from the DB4 and DB5, the new model was announced at the London Motor Show in October 1965.
The most noticeable styling changes on the DB6 were the Kamm tail rear spoiler, which improved high speed stability, the split front and rear bumpers; a redesigned oil cooler aperture in the front valance, a higher roof line (136 cm) and longer wheelbase (258.5 cm), 9.5 cm more than the DB5, giving an overall length of 462 cm. The increase of space in the rear made the DB6 a more practical family proposition.
