1966 Aston Martin DB6 Vantage Left-Hand Drive: 5-Speed with Matching Numbers

This extremely desirable 1966 Aston Martin DB6 Vantage is a factory LHD example that retains its original matching numbers engine. Finished in the classic color scheme of Silver Birch over Navy Blue Connolly leather. Factory 5-Speed manual transmission, air conditioning, and chrome wire wheels from new. It was just serviced by Aston Martin specialists Steel Wings in PA. The car was subject to an award-winning restoration by marque specialists Kevin Kay Restorations about 20 years ago and the quality of the work shines in the condition of the car today. This beautifully presented DB6 Vantage is ready to be driven and enjoyed.

Ordered new by Dr. George A. Paris of Sonora, California through the San Francisco-based dealer British Motor Cars, this DB6 was optioned in Vantage-spec for an additional 40 horsepower as well as with the desirable five-speed ZF manual gearbox. It was also ordered with factory Normalair air conditioning, 3.73:1 limited slip differential, chrome wheels, heated rear screen, Firam horns for both town and country, dual front Britax three-point seat belts, chrome wheels with knock off hubs, a power operated aerial, and a high capacity 7-pint antifreeze system. The car would remain in California up until 2010. At the time of the restoration ( 20 years ago), the engine was rebuilt with new Weber carburetors installed and hardened valve seats put in place to accommodate unleaded gas. The electrical system was converted to negative ground in line with modern standards as well. Not just concerned with get-up-and-go, the handling was improved with upgraded suspension componentry. A selection of receipts document of the work completed. The DB6 is the last of the iconic DB Aston Martins from the ’60s and, with its pure form and powerful Vantage engine, the example offered here is a must-have for any Aston Martin enthusiast.
