Footnotes

  • The Aston Martin DB6 was launched at the London and Paris Motor Shows in 1965. Although recognisably related to the Carrozzeria Touring-styled DB4, which had founded this particular line back in 1958, the DB6 abandoned its predecessors' Touring-designed Superleggera body framework, adopting a conventional steel fabrication clad, as previously, in aluminium panels. The wheelbase was now 4" longer than before, resulting in an extensive re-style with more-raked windscreen, raised roofline, and reshaped rear quarter windows. Opening front quarter-lights reappeared but the major change was at the rear where a Kamm tail improved the aerodynamics. Although apparently a bigger car than its predecessors, the weight of the new model was in fact only fractionally increased.

    Tested in the racing DBR2 before its production debut in the DB4, Aston's twin-cam six had been enlarged to 3,995cc for the preceding DB5 and remained unchanged. Power output on triple SU carburettors was 282bhp, rising to 325bhp in Vantage specification on triple Webers. Borg-Warner automatic transmission was offered alongside the standard ZF five-speed manual gearbox, while for the first time power-assisted steering was an option.

    In the summer of 1969 the Mark 2 DB6 was announced in saloon and Volante convertible versions. Distinguishable by its flared wheelarches and DBS wheels, the Mark 2 came with power-assisted steering as standard and could be ordered with AE Brico electronic fuel injection.

    This DB6 Mark 2 was first owned by one Philip Chaplin of Cardiff and registered as 'PAD 100H' on 16th September 1969. Originally finished in Shell Grey, the car retains its original logbook recording a change of ownership to Vogue Sewing Machines (D Flint) a couple of months later, when the registration changed to 'VDF 1'. Mr Donald Flint assumed personal ownership of the Aston in 1972. He would own the car for the next 34 years before selling it to the Stan West Collection in August 2006. Since acquisition the Aston has been serviced by marque specialist Oselli; related bills are on file and the car also comes with old/current registration documents and a quantity of expired MoTs and tax discs.
