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.

    Service History
    Finance available




    This superb car is a total rebuild and restoration of a DB6 coupe to precise factory

    Short Chassis Volante specification. The bodywork was supplied by Bodylines with the nut and bolt restoration carried out to concours standard by the well respected marque specialist Goldsmith & Young Ltd.

    The paintwork is Winchester Blue and the interior leather is Portland Grey, with a blue mohair hood and blue Boyriven carpets.

    The engine has been rebuilt to 4.2 litre capacity with triple SU carburettors.  It has a rebuilt five speed ZF manual gearbox and back axle, and new electric power steering.  It also has electronic ignition, a new heavy duty starter motor, aluminium radiator and an extra cooling fan.

    The suspension is built on a Harvey Bailey set up installed by Goldsmith & Young and all ancillaries have been renovated or replaced.

    The original Short Chassis Volantes were produced between October 1965 and October 1966 with only 37 of the models being built. They were based on 37 remaining DB5 chassis and were produced at the same time as the DB6 started production.  They were therefore given DB6 chassis numbers.

    The model is therefore not only rare but acknowledged as a very attractive combination of elements of both the DB5 and DB6.  For example it has DB6 half bumpers front and rear, DB6 rear lights, and oil cooler.  The interior trim and leather work is DB6 while the dash board is DB5.  It has an original Motorola radio and electric aerial. Overall it is closer to a DB5 but the DB6 additions complement the package extremely well.

    It was the first model to be designated ‘Volante’, all previous dropheads simply being called convertibles. The Short Chassis description is accurate in that the DB6 chassis was not shortened due to the use of the shorter DB5 chassis. The car is therefore a model in its own right.

    As far as the owner, a long time AMOC member, is aware, this car is the only example in existence of a rebodied and restored DB6 coupe to a Short Chassis Volante factory specification.  It was recently accepted as an entrant to an AMOC Concours in the Pride of Ownership Heritage Class.

    A full set of photographic evidence of the rebuild is available on volante.squarespace.com, or a booklet is available on request.

    In essence, this is a brand new car having done only 110 miles since completion and could with justification be named the “38th” Short Chassis Volante.
