For Sale at Auction: 1967 Aston Martin DB6 in Amelia Island, Florida

Vehicle Description

Chassis No. DB6/3398/R
Engine No. 400/3537

As the replacement for the vaunted DB5, the new Aston Martin DB6 had big shoes to fill. Power, civility, grace, and charm were all necessary traits along with a raft of technical improvements requested by company owner David Brown. The resulting engineering and design brief raised the DB6's roofline just over an inch, improving rear headroom and lengthening the wheelbase by four inches created additional legroom for rear passengers. Aston Martin engineers added rake to the front front windshield without losing any of the attributes that made the DB5 the epitome of English sports car elegance. The resulting DB6 was everything Aston Martin hoped it would be; a dashing Kamm tailed sports car, eminently usable, and just as exciting as the DB5. It was more than a worthy successor and simply put, last in the line of a series of voluptuous 1960s Aston Martins.

This 1967 DB6 Mk I, resplendent in Silver Birch over a black leather interior with black Wilton carpeting, was completely restored in 2006 and features a number of attractive modifications and upgrades. During restoration, the driving position was swapped from its original, right hand drive configuration to left hand drive. As per the consignor, the matching numbers 4.0-liter, cast-aluminum straight-six has been upgraded to Vantage specification most notably with the replacement of its carburetors with three high-performance Webers. Additionally, a Tremec five-speed transmission replaces the original synchromesh ZF. However, should the winning bidder wish to convert to a more original specification, the sale includes a spare ZF as well. Also of note is the addition of Mk II style fender flares with wider wheels for a more purposeful look. To support those looks, a Steel Wings handling package, featuring revised shocks, springs, and an anti roll bar have also been installed.

All told, this vintage DB6 is a beautifully restored sports car with integrating well thought out, subtle performance minded upgrades. These understated, Mk II era details, keep this DB6 in line with Aston Martin's own technical and stylistic progressions throughout the remainder of the DB6 era.
