The Aston Martin DB6 Vantage Sports Saloon available exclusively through Autostorico Ltd is a 1966 example supplied new via Eton Garages (Slough) Ltd. This superb matching-numbers example, chassis number DB62827/R, has been painstakingly and beautifully restored over two years by the renowned Aston Engineering of Derby, a founding member of the Aston Martin Heritage network. After an initial assessment every mechanical and body component was dismantled and categorised for refurbishment or replacement. Once stripped, the aluminium front and rear body panels were carefully removed from the steel chassis. The chassis was then shot blasted to remove the old under-body sealer and expose any corrosion. New replacement sections were fabricated on site and welded into place using original techniques. Once complete the repaired chassis was stove enamelled to ensure the best possible rust protection for years to come. The front and rear body sections, along with bonnet, boot lid and doors were chemically dipped to remove old paintwork. Each panel was carefully assessed and then either repaired or replaced depending on the condition. The aluminium front and rear panels were refitted, with the door fits, bonnet and boot gaps being set. The body shell was now meticulously prepared for the paintwork using the latest products to ensure a finish of the highest standard in stunning Silver Birch (AST1180).
Having been chemically cleaned and pressure washed, the engine was completely stripped and all components thoroughly inspected. The cylinder head was vapour blasted and other items re-plated, re-chromed or stove enamelled to achieve the finest finish. After assembly the engine was re-installed onto a dynamometer, set up, fully run in and power tested to ensure smooth and efficient running. All of the refurbished and new body fittings were then installed, and the re-chromed bumpers and door frames positioned and adjusted. Complete electrical systems were fitted with new or refurbished wiring harnesses and components. The mechanical build was then carried out including; powder coated front suspension rebuilt with new components and overhauled rear axle installation, braking system including master cylinders, servos, pipework, pedal gear and callipers, fuel system, pipework and tank fitted, full engine bay refit, including the rebuilt engine and overhauled gearbox, cooling and exhaust systems.
The fully restored DB6 Vantage was then trimmed with new Wilton carpets, handmade for the car in Red, with House of Lords Red leatherwork and seats, installed by craftsmen with over 30 year’s experience of Aston Martin trim work.
A stunning example of this legendary car, DB62827/R comes with the original Aston Martin factory build sheet and full restoration documentation together with photographic history of each stage of this outstanding restoration project.
