Footnotes

  • A five-speed manual transmission model factory-fitted with the optional power-assisted steering, this DB6 Volante was first registered on 9th May 1968. The accompanying copy guarantee form reveals that '3682/R' was also delivered with the 3.7:1 ratio rear axle and limited-slip differential; chrome road wheels; three-ear hubcaps; Motorola radio (with power aerial); front and rear seat belts; tonneau cover in tan Everflex; and two detachable headrests. The UK registration was originally 'SJD 3F', subsequently 'TYF 942F'.

    Its first owner, one Stuart Stanton of London NW1, kept the car until 1976 when it was purchased on 16th February that year by the second owner, Mr Anthony Hitch of London NW10. The third owner, P Karsten, acquired the Volante on 20th January 1981 and would keep the car until May 2008 when it was sold at Bonhams' auction at Aston Martin Works (Lot 304). At that time the DB6 came with comprehensive history file of all bills for service and restoration work totalling well over £40,000, covering the period from 1977 to 2008. All mechanical work had been done by official Aston Martin Service Dealers, principally Ian Mason and Chiltern Aston following Ian Mason's retirement. Sadly, original copies of this history have since been lost.

    In addition to routine servicing, major work included repairs to bodywork as necessary and a full bare-metal re-spray by Crailville Motors/Pulborough Coachworks in 1981. Maintenance carried out by Ian Mason included an engine rebuild and fitting a Vantage inlet camshaft; complete suspension and brake rebuild incorporating a Harvey Bailey Handling Kit; complete chassis/sill rebuild; and fitting a new radiator, water pump, oil cooler and replacement SU carburettors (x3). Following the engine rebuild in 1981, some 12,000-or-so miles had been covered by the time the Aston was sold in May 2008. In April 2008 (at 83,503 miles) a thorough inspection/report and full service, including replacing the water pump and changing the brake and clutch fluid had been carried out by Chiltern Aston.

    '3682/R' has had a successful concours history as documented in the Aston Martin Owners Club Register, specifically: 1982 Newport Pagnell Concours, 2nd in class; 1982 Hendon Concours, Club Trophy; 1983 Hendon Concours, 5th in Elite Class; 1989 Silverstone Horsfall Concours, Volz Trophy; and 1990 Silverstone Horsfall Concours, 4th in Elite Class. In 1993 the DB6 featured in Fast Lane magazine (August edition) in an article on Volantes complementing the Aston Martin Virage road test.

    Finished in Rolls Royce Coffee Bean Brown with Bridge of Weir (magnolia) hide upholstery, this DB6 Volante benefits from a full engine rebuild carried out by Aston Martin Works in February 2021 bringing the mechanical condition of the car up to standard. Accompanying documentation consists of a bill of sale and confirmation of UK taxes paid. It should be noted that modern seatbelts and a smaller MotoLita steering wheel are currently installed, the latter considered more suited to the power assisted steering.
