"Stage by stage, as the DB has become dominant in the Aston Martin strain, the successive cars have changed their image. Today the aim is to offer the maximum of luxury and refinement as well as the ultimate in road performance. The minor barbarities of so many great sports cars of the past are no longer acceptable – at least in the hand built models now leaving Newport Pagnell. Obviously such a car as the DB6 is expensive and exclusive but the value matches the price." – Autocar, 1966.
An automatic transmission model, '3309/R' left the Newport Pagnell factory finished in Pacific Blue with natural Connolly leather trim The guarantee form lists the following items of non-standard equipment: power assisted steering; chrome road wheels; heated rear screen; 3-ear hubcaps; power aerial; and lap/diagonal safety belts. One S I Phillips Esq is recorded as the purchaser, but accompanying registration documents show that the DB6 was in fact first registered as 'SYE 12F' on 18th December 1967 to Denis McEwan of Somerset, an AMOC member. The Aston would remain in the McEwan family's ownership for at least the next 41 years, passing to his wife in March 2008. The current vendor purchased the car from well-respected Aston Martin specialist Keith Riddington's company Classicmobilia on 10th July 2010.
'SYE 12F' comes with a good history file containing sundry bills (many from marque specialists Aston Service Dorset); (part) V5C registration document (for which an application will be required to re-patriate the number as the motor car had been exported); SORN paperwork; a copy of the 2010 purchase invoice; and a substantial quantity of MoTs dating back to the 1980s.
This DB6 has been on static display for a number of years and as such will require recommissioning prior to road use. Please also note this Lot is subject to UK import tax at the reduced rate of 5% if it is to remain in the UK.
