We are excited to offer this 1968 Aston Martin DB6 MK1, aristocratic by nature with film-star good looks and devilish charm, a celebrity not only to the motoring community, but to the world as a whole.
The most noticeable changes over the outgoing DB5 were the functional Kamm tail and rear spoiler improved high speed stability, split front and rear bumpers, redesigned oil cooler aperture for the front valance, power steering, a taller roof line and longer wheelbase all combining to make the DB6 a faster, more dynamic gentleman’s sports car – yet an undercover agent as a more practical proposition.
Not only do we enjoy ogling this British marque but driving the car is an event within itself. In the confines of the city its luxurious and spacious yet once out on the open road and escaping the mundane, be totally engaged by the DB6’s brawny roar coming from the twin pipes at the rear, the revving 4.0 litre inline-six and the driver-centric cabin filled with switches, timber, leather and lights all whilst twisting through narrow country roads.
Delivered new to the UK originally in Rosso Du Bonnet the DB6 found its way to Australia in 1975 imported by its first Australian owner. It was only shortly after this factory right hand drive Aston Martin had its colour changed to Kensington Silver.
For blue-chip classics its always great to see early paperwork and this Aston has a well-documented history here in Australia. The paperwork shows its motor had been the subject of a reconditioning in 1997 by marque specialist with regular maintenance carried out by its last owner ever since including the recent rebuild of the front and rear suspension and steering components.
Still presented today in what we believe to be its original black Connolly leather interior this Aston has been preserved well. Recently the subject of major bodyworks and today mechanically sound this early DB is ripe to be driven by its next custodian.
A fantastic addition for any collection or enthusiast, ready to enliven the daily commute or touring the Hunter Valley on those weekends away, nothing can surpass the pleasure of being able to turn and say, “Let’s take the Aston”.
