Hexagon Classics are delighted to offer this splendid DB6. Of all the cars ever produced by Aston Martin, the DB6 is arguably the ultimate development of the David Brown “gentleman’s express” concept of a Grand Touring motor car. The DB6 continued the attractive styling of covered headlamp nose, while the back ended in an aero-efficient “Kamm tail” which featured a small upswept spoiler. The chassis was extended 3.75-inches in order to accommodate for the first time a pair of usable rear seats and the body panels were, as always with an Aston, of hand-formed aluminium. The new DB6 also featured enhanced options to include; power-assisted Girling disc brakes and a limited slip differential. The interior cosseted the lucky occupants in the finest Connolly hides and Wilton wool carpet – quite the anomaly when one considers that this limo luxury travelled from zero to sixty miles per hour in under seven seconds and had a top speed of 148 miles per hour!
Chassis 3241/R was supplied new on the 10th November 1967 by Rose & Young Ltd, Caterham, Surrey to Mr Norman Jayweather of Footscray, Kent. The last owner, a prominent Italian lawyer & a resident of Rome, bought the car from Kenneth Dodd in 1983, and kept and enjoyed the Aston as his daily motorcar for over 30 years until Hexagon Classics acquisition! The invoices and paperwork for works and parts whilst in Rome is comprehensive.
The car was commissioned to be built to the same specification that the car is presented in today. In Hexagon Classics’ ownership, the following restoration works have been completed: a bare metal repaint in Dawn Blue, complete re-trim in Connolly Grey Hide VM 3393, new Wilton carpets in Grey, new chromium wire wheels, re-chroming of original parts, and a comprehensive mechanical overhaul by AM marque specialists costing almost £84,000.
The motorcar is also presented with the following documentation:
Aston Martin Lagonda factory build specification sheet and works history, BMIHT factory record, original driver’s instruction hand book, original road test reports, factory brochure, contemporary service & restoration invoices from 1983. Hexagon Classics are very proud to offer for sale this wonderful Aston Martin DB6 Automatic coupe, presented in superb restored condition, ready to be used and enjoyed.
