This 1967 Aston Martin DB6 Mk1 Auto still has an undeniable charm finished in Bronze Metallic with Tan Leather interior, originally finished in Sierra Blue with natural leather interior and left the factory equipped with the following: power steering; chrome road wheels; heated rear screen; two safety belts; power aerial and the 3.54:1 limited-slip differential.
From June 1990 to November 1992, it was registered to one Bertie Pearl of Perthshire and carried the registration number '640 BP'. A letter on file from Mr Colin Gilburt (dated 30th October 1992) contains details of a full restoration undertaken by Mr Gilburt's company, Thoroughbred Cars (Edinburgh) Ltd, which included rebuilds of the engine, torque converter and automatic gearbox; chassis and bodywork repairs; re-spray and re-trim; braking system overhaul; and various other works. The cost is stated as in excess of £35,000.
The car was purchased by the immediately preceding owner Stephen Morgan on 23rd November 1992 and the registration mark changed to 'HSR 688E'. In September 1998 Five Oaks Garage in Jersey undertook a brake overhaul, while the fuel tank was removed and reconditioned and carburettor repairs were carried out. Further servicing and maintenance were entrusted to Brewery Motors of Farndon, near Chester. The current owner purchased the DB6 at Bonhams' Goodwood Revival sale in September 2008 (Lot 368). Accompanying paperwork includes the aforementioned documents; a quantity of expired MoTs, this attractive DB6 has been on static display for a number of years and as such will require some recommissioning prior to road use.
