1968 Aston Martin DB6 Sports Saloon
Registration no. PYR 916F - Not currently UK Registered (see text)
Chassis no. DB6/3372/R
*Converted from automatic to five-speed manual transmission in the 1980s
*Mk2 Vantage engine block


According to the accompanying copy guarantee form, '3372/R' was delivered new equipped with automatic transmission; power assisted steering; chrome road wheels; heated rear screen; power operated aerial; three-ear hubcaps; and front safety belts. The car was finished in Dubonnet Rosso with tan leather interior and was first owned by Mr P A Bass of Leicestershire. It is understood that the conversion from automatic transmission to the current five-speed manual gearbox was carried out by Chevron specialist Vin Malkie, whose Manchester garage maintained the car from 1981 to 1989. The engine block, a later Mk2 Vantage component, dates from this period. The suspension was rebuilt around 21 years ago and the bodywork repainted in Silver Birch by Eaton Square Garage circa 20 years ago. The seat leather is original and un-restored.

The previous owner acquired the Aston in 2006, carrying out light restoration and only driving the car on day trips during summer months. When the DB6 was sold to the current owner at Bonhams' Aston Martin Works auction in 2012 (Lot 233), it was stated that the most recent maintenance had included renewing the rear springs; fitting an aluminium radiator and new fan cowling; Zircoating the exhaust manifolds; and replacing both front sections of the exhaust with stainless pipes and flexible connections. Having been stored for the intervening period, the car may require some re-commissioning prior to road use. Exported post-sale, the car is subject to the low import duty rate of 5% and will require re-registering if it is to remain in the UK.
