"From this perspective, an affordable and fine DB6 with plenty of British understated attitude and craftsmanship."


It was purchased new in Hong Kong, registered in January 1970, and spent the next seven years with its undoubtedly affluent English owner. The car then travelled back to England. It had an unknown owner during the latter two years of the 1970s, but the two owners from the 1980s to 1992 are known. The present owner purchased the car on the spur of the moment while he was seeking a Jaguar XK150 during his contract as a project manager for a factory construction company in England in the early 1990s. The DB6 required modest renovation, which an Aston workshop completed in the autumn of 1992, focusing on body and engine renovation. When the owner concluded his assignments in England, he brought the car back to Sweden, where they are still exceedingly rare today.

The owner has utilised his Aston in the way that a true vintage grand tourer should be used, with many and long travels across the continent, and not just to meet with like-minded people. He purchased the car with 140,000 kilometres and he has driven just over 55,000 kilometres with the DB6 up to this point. The car was with Aston Engineering in 2014 and received suspension and electronic ignition updates. The most recent service, which included a new brake servo, was in November of last year, and the most recent - and hence the last mandatory - inspection was in 2018 so now inspection/MOT free for life.

  • Mechanical condition:

    Clear and great mechanical feel, with its impressive straight six-cylinder that provides that classic Aston signature sound. At some point, the original engine was replaced with an engine from a DB5, which is the same engine as the original. During an Aston Martin manufacturing history assessment in 2012, the factory overlooked the fact that the engine had been replaced. Furthermore, the original fitted automatic gearbox has been replaced with an authentic ZF manual gearbox. Surprisingly tight road characteristics at both high and low speeds.

  • Interior condition:

    Original beige leather interior, wonderfully patinated and framed by nice carpets, lovely controls, and an instrument panel to adore behind the equally lovely steering wheel with the DB emblem in the centre. Original factory-installed Webasto sunroof.

  • Exterior condition:

    Repainted several times, most recently in Sweden in 2008, but always in the original Goodwood Green colour. The bodywork is straight and attractive, with great door shut lines. Beautiful paint, nice chrome, nice spoked wheels, and good Dunlop tyres.

  • General condition:

    An exceptional piece of English grand tourer with understated flair and class. The steering wheel is on the right side and is in a user-friendly fine condition.

Owner's comment

DB6 Mk2 of which only 240 were built was the last development of Aston Martin model starting with DB4 followed by DB5 and then DB6. Unfortunately the build record has very little detail, stating the model year as 1969, territory as Hong Kong, engine number 400/4449, exterior colour Goodwood Green and the interior Natural. Original Webasto roof is fitted. Safety belts in front seats. The first owners are unknown. The car was registered in UK 1977-09-01 with owner also unknown. The next owner was John H James and Co who acquired the car in October 1979 followed by Vincent Hockley in February 1984. Present owner bought the car in November 1992. He noted that the original engine had been replaced by earlier owner. Present engine is 400/1329. Four Ashes undertook a thorough restoration of the car during 1993 before it was exported to Sweden. The original automatic gearbox was replaced with a 5 speed ZF in 1996 by Four Ashes. The engine was modified for lead free petrol by Aston Engineering in 1998. The car has been used for tours to the continent and UK. After a visit to Goodwood Revival 2012 Aston Works in Newport Pagnell did a vehicle appraisal. Following their report Aston Engineering did most of the recommendations. After the repair the car has been used every year in Sweden and Finland.

Facts about the model

DB stands for grandfather David Brown, whose grandson David Brown headed the family firm from 1946 through the early 1970s when it took over Aston Martin. As a result, the models DB1 to DB6, and eventually the revived DB7, were all produced under Ford's ownership.
