The DB6 was the final evolution of the Aston Martin that had started with the introduction of the DB4 back in 1958. Launched in 1965, it departed from that evolutionary path to a far greater degree than its predecessor the DB5. The Superleggera principle of body construction was largely done away with in favour of more traditional methods with a resultant weight saving. The wheelbase was increased by 4 which gave the cabin more room and for the first time the car became a true four seater! There were also marked styling differences over the DB5, in particular the rear three-quarter windows which recall the DB4 GT Zagato, and the Kamm inspired tail, reflecting the Project 214 race cars, which greatly improved the DB6s straight line stability. The DB6 also had the best version yet of the Marek 4.0 litre 6 cylinder unit with many improvements. With the increase in wheel base and improvements to rear suspension and engine development the DB6 was considered the best Aston yet to drive and as such continued to be produced until 1970 by which time the DBS production was well under way.
This DB6 left the factory in August 1968 and was first registered to E.A. Dring Esq from Boston, Lincs, factory records show it returning on several occasions until September1971. It eventually came into the hands of Mr Jim Robson of Robson Conveyors, Sheffield in September 1986 with the intention of carrying out a restoration on the car. He employed the services of Aston Service Dorset for parts and a more local specialist Derek Watson for the mechanical and bodywork. The restoration work started in 1994 and completed in 1996, although the car had clearly been stored prior to restoration as the difference of just 400 miles between the 1988 and 1996 MOTs show!
Mr Robson parted company with the car shortly afterwards in 1998 when it was acquired by the current keeper. It has been lovingly maintained to a very high standard and cared for since then by renowned marque specialists Desmond J Smail and subsequently Aston Engineering as many invoices in the comprehensive history file show.
