Footnotes

  • With the DB6 Mk2's introduction in June 1969, the final incarnation of the original DB Series, begun in 1958 by the DB4, had arrived. The option of AE Brico fuel injection was the most significant mechanical development, while flared wheelarches, necessitated by the adoption of the wider DBS wheels, were the most obvious. In a further effort at standardisation, DBS front seats were fitted to the DB6 Mk2, which now came with power-assisted steering as standard.

    Last-of-the-line models are always sought after by discerning collectors, and among Aston Martins few are more highly prized that the final flowering of the glorious 'David Brown' six-cylinder series. First registered on 24th June 1970, this DB6 Mk2 has the desirable ZF five-speed manual transmission and left the factory finished in Bahama Yellow with black interior trim. A (copy) V5C document on file shows that one Trevor Clayton acquired the Aston on 24th June 2003 and that the car previously belonged (from July 1998) to John Penn (an AMOC member). The current owner purchased the DB6 from Aston Workshop in March 2008, at which time it had already been repainted red (copy invoice on file). 'YTD 100H' is listed in the HPI database; nevertheless, prospective purchasers must satisfy themselves with regard to this vehicle's registration status prior to bidding. Sold strictly as viewed and lacking original registration documents, the car will require re-commissioning and registering before further use. Import tax at the reduced rate of 5% will apply should the Lot remain in the UK.
