Detailed History
This lovely DB6 Mk2 Vantage was manufactured in April 1970 and records show it was sold by HR Owen in London and registered in September 1970. The car was supplied by the factory with the Vantage engine and manual transmission options (power assisted steering was standard on the MkII's), as well as a body colour in Burnt Almond and an interior in Natural leather.

It seems the car remained a cherished example throughout its life as the Aston Martin Owners Club (AMOC) Register notes the car had several club concours successes in 1979, 1985, and 1986. Although it is unknown when the car adopted the lovely shade of British Racing Green it wears today, we imagine it was a regular at AMOC events and competed in many concours events over the years, in addition to the events at which it was awarded a prize.

More recently, the DB6 was acquired in August 1997 by an Aston Martin Owners Club member who resided near Birmingham, and they retained the car for thirteen years until its most recent owner acquired it directly from them in May 2010. Soon after purchase, the Vantage was exported to the Middle East where it joined their significant car collection and remained on display in their storage.

Upon the cars return to England in 2018, Aston Martin Works have carried out a significant recommissioning of the mechanicals, including an overhaul of the original (matching numbers) Vantage specification engine. As with every Heritage Aston Martin presented for sale at Aston Martin works, the work was carried out by Aston Martin technicians in the same facility in which the car was originally constructed.

Of the 240 DB6 Mk2's produced, only 71 had the Vantage engine from new which makes this example a very rare car. Presenting in good condition with a charming interior complete with a period radio, lovely colour combination, and after a thorough recommissioning by Aston Martin Works, this beautiful DB6 is ready to be enjoyed at further AMOC events.
