Footnotes

  • The culmination of Aston-Martin's long-running line of 'DB' six-cylinder sports saloons, the DB6 was introduced in 1965. Recognisably related to the Touring-styled DB4 of 1958, the DB6 abandoned the Superleggera body structure of its predecessors in favour of a conventional steel fabrication. 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 made a re-appearance, but the major change was at the rear where a Kamm-style tail with spoiler improved the aerodynamics, greatly enhancing stability at high speeds.

    The Tadek Marek-designed six-cylinder engine 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. Borg-Warner automatic transmission was offered alongside the standard ZF five-speed gearbox, and for the first time there was optional power-assisted steering. Introduced in July 1969, the DB6 Mark 2 incorporated many components shared with the new DBS, most obviously the latter's wider wheels, which necessitated flaring the front and rear wheelarches. All Mark 2 Vantages came with the highest (325bhp) 'C' state of tune, while all cars benefited from power-assisted steering as standard. Production lasted until November 1970, during which time only 240 DB6 Mark 2s were manufactured, 71 of which were to Vantage specification.

    Chassis number '4184/R' comes with the all-important Aston Martin Assured Provenance (issued January 2021), though assessment of the car's originality was hampered by the lack of any service history or a build sheet due to the destruction of the original factory records from this year of production. Nevertheless, the engine, gearbox, suspension and brakes were found to be to original specification, and no evidence was found of repairs to either the body or chassis. The interior upholstery has been re-Connollised and the carpets renewed, and the car has been fitted with an after-market 8-track radio/cassette and its associated speakers. Additional documentation consists of a NOVA confirmation dated August 2017; an AMW Internal Invoice for a fuel filter, spark plugs, and a new Bosch battery (2018); and an old-style V5C Registration Certificate (issued 2005) in the name of Donald Anderson of Glasgow (it should be noted that the car is not currently registered). The car is offered from long term storage and requires recommissioning.
