Description

This DB6 left the Newport Pagnell factory in January 1968 in its original Olive paintwork over Natural Connolly trim with factory options of 5 speed ZF gearbox, heated rear screen, chrome wheels, power aerial, 3 ear hub caps and seat belts. It was supplied new via dealers HR Owen to its first owner Mr Bryan Smith RCS of Sutton Coldfield who kept the car until 1976 during which time it returned to Newport Pagnell for regular servicing and maintenance. Smith sold the car to nearby Automobile Engineers Tamworth Precision Engineering who carried out some remedial work before selling the car to a Mr David Topham from Swanage in 1978. Mr Topham kept the car for some time and undertook a restoration process in 1983 which included chassis and sill work, partial engine re-build and a complete re-spray. Topham eventually parted with the car in 1988 when it had a short spell with Mr Hammond before being sold to its next owner Mr Stephen Jones via RS Williams in 1991. The DB6 enjoyed a short stay in Hong Kong with Mr Jones before returning to the UK in 1996 when it first came to the attention of Desmond J Smail Ltd before being acquired by a Mr Biscoe from Wheathampstead in 1999. Mr Biscoe entrusted the maintenance of his car to specialists Runnymede Motor Co before eventually commissioning them to undertake a complete nut and bolt restoration in 2011-2012. This included a bare metal respray, complete retrim, chassis and sill work, engine rebuild, gearbox re-build, suspension re-build to Harvey Bailey spec etc. MOT records show Mr Biscoe used the DB6 sparingly until he eventually parted company with it in 2019 when it came into the hands of the current owner who in turn has enjoyed the car in a similar way. It remains in superb condition having only covered a mere 2,000 miles or so since restoration, and comes with a very comprehensive service and owner history from day one!
