Delivery Pack

Warranty is provided for twelve months. Currently this is an AutoProtect Premier Plus product with a vehicle purchase price claim limit. This policy is available for various periods and claims limits, full details of which are contained within the policy booklet. You can purchase additional cover from AutoProtect via our Service department or direct, either when your current policy is about to expire or prior to commencement of initial policy start. We will be happy to provide information regarding pricing upon your request.

The policy covers all mechanical and electrical parts (including labour to fit them) of the insured vehicle against mechanical breakdown. There is no restriction to the number of claims you can make. However, the vehicle must be serviced by a VAT registered garage in line with the requirements laid out within the policy booklet. Mechanical breakdown is defined by AutoProtect as; the failure of a component causing a sudden stoppage of its function, for a reason other than wear and tear, normal deterioration or negligence. Inclusion of the optional roadside assistance is also provided. Again, full details are laid out in the policy booklet.

Road fund licence included is the provision of a six month licence, unless balance of existing licence is agreed at point of sale. Twelve months licence is available at extra cost.

A new MOT test will be carried out as part of the vehicle's preparation, to ensure that the components are functioning in line with the manufacturer's specification, commensurate with age and mileage.

Any accident damage that we are aware of or have been made aware of by previous owners, third parties or HPI register will be declared.

Mileage and service history, in addition to whatever visual checks are possible, all document and service stamps are checked and a National Mileage Register check is carried out via HPI.

Next service due is carried out as per manufacturer's recommendations within the owners guide.

If the vehicle you are choosing is still under manufacturer's warranty, you can choose to extend this via our Service department. Similarly if the vehicle is of an age and mileage that allows, then again an Aston Martin warranty can be purchased in lieu of the AutoProtect Premier Plus product. The choice is available to you - please ask to speak to our Aftersales Advisor in our Service department for full details.

Regarding classic vehicles, every effort is made to ensure that they are of a quality and standard befitting the marque and how we choose to support it. Due to age and mileage, in most cases vehicles cannot be supported by either the Aston Martin extended warranty or the AutoProtect policy, however the Aston Martin classic warranty may well be available to purchase - again please ask for details.

    1967 Aston Martin DB6 Saloon
    Chassis number; D B 6 3 1 6 4 R
    Manual transmission
    Odometer reading 72,000
    2 family owner car


    An excellent opportunity to acquire an 2 owner and lovingly kept manual DB6, the final iteration of David Brown’s coveted ‘DB’ six-cylinder sports saloons, and thus considered by many to be the last 'real' Aston.
    The DB6, introduced in 1965, was an altogether more developed and refined machine than its famous predecessor and boasted rear seats which could actually be used courtesy of a longer wheel base and more-raked windscreen, raised roofline and reshaped rear quarter windows.
    The major visual change over the DB5 is at the rear where a Kamm-style tail improved the aerodynamics and greatly enhanced stability at high speeds.
    "The tail lip halves the aerodynamic lift around maximum speed and brings in its train greater headroom and more luggage space," revealed Motor magazine, concluding that the DB6 was one of the finest sports cars it had tested. "The DB6 with its longer wheelbase and better headroom makes an Aston Martin available to the far wider four-seater market, and the design is in every way superior to the previous model. A purist might have thought that the longer wheelbase would affect the near-perfect balance of the DB5, but if anything the DB6 is better."
    This particular example is a manual 1967 model year car and specified new with power steering, chromed wheels & 3 ear hub spinners; heated rear screen, 2 lap and diagonal safety belts, a Motorola radio and powered aerial.
    This car was purchased by its second custodian, the renowned aerial photographer Arthur Gibson, in the 70’s and has remained in his family ever since.
    A signed print of perhaps Arthur’s most famous image - Concord flying in close formation with the Red Arrows aligned with the Queen Elizabeth 2 in 1985 - accompanies the car.
    We have had the pleasure of looking after this DB6 since 2010 and in 2014 undertook signification mechanical works to enhance the car including: unleaded cylinder head conversion; a new clutch + flywheel; new fuel pump; replacement chrome wire wheels + tyres and overhaul operations on the brake, steering and suspension systems.
    The car has had minimal use since our involvement and is always properly stored. She is thus ready to be driven and enjoyed.
    A rare chance to acquire a superbly maintained, low owner and much loved DB6 with a significant history file and ready for immediate use.
