A rare and intriguing opportunity to purchase an unfinished DB6 project that we have just collected from a customer to sell on their behalf. The restoration work to date has been completed by other marque specialists, ready for completion by its next custodian. This presents the opportunity for the car to be completed and built to your personal specification in a reduced timescale.
Originally wearing a specification of Goodwood Green exterior over a Natural leather interior, this DB6 left the factory in January 1967 to be distributed by Aston Martin Lagonda Ltd. themselves. Not much is known about the cars history from that point until now apart from that it belonged to Victor Lownes, European VP of Playboy during the 60s and 70s, as well as Hugh Hefner himself.
The car is now prepared to be rebuilt by its next owner and is currently offered for sale by Aston Workshop on behalf of its current owner. The chassis has been extensively restored and powder coated ready for application of stone chip protection. The vehicle comes with a new aluminium body coated in epoxy primer. While not a complete car, most of the main components needed for the rebuild is there and the car in a rolling chassis state with front and rear suspension fitted.
The engine is currently away to be rebuilt by a marque specialist, while the car is also supplied with a Tremec 5 speed manual transmission. Ready to be built into the dream DB6 of it's next owner, this car represents a fantastic opportunity to own the final version of the famous Touring Superleggera shape that has defined Aston Martin design ever since.
Our helpful sales team are happy to discuss the car in further detail; please call +44 (0) 1207 268 932 or email email@example.com.
About the Aston Martin DB6 Mk1
Representing the final evolution of the design that would define Aston Martin going forward, the DB6 combined the film-star looks of the DB5 with a more usable and comfortable chassis. Longer, taller and with a more upright windscreen, the DB6 could now comfortably fit four adults while a new rear end treatment with an upswept spoiler improved high speed handling. Modern refinements such as air conditioning and power steering became available which contributed to the success of the model; more than 1300 Mk1 DB6s were built, more than the DB4 or DB5 had managed before it.
