This DB6 Vantage is 1 of only around 100 original LHD Vantage specification DB6 produced by the factory. Delivered new in France in its original colour scheme of Platinum with Dark Blue Connolly, with factory extras of Vantage engine, limited slip diff, chrome wheels, heated rear screen, 3 ear hub caps and power aerial. The matching numbers DB6 Vantage was first registered through French Aston Martin agent Garage Mirabeau to the wife of well-known French singer Richard Anthony. Apparently she was driving a Ferrari 250 Lusso, but the Aston was new machinery and en vogue in comparison. It was kept in their ownership and registered in Paris until 1971 when it was sold to Mr. Franck Fernandel, also a Paris resident. Only two weeks after its purchase by Mr. Fernandel, it was once again sold to Mr. Daniel Leroy another Paris resident. Later in the same year, it was once again sold to another Parisian Mr. Jean Michel.
In 1974, the DB6 moved South to Montpellier and new ownership. In the 1980’s it moved North once again to Mulhouse having been purchased by a Mr. Marx. In the early 1990’s, the DB6 was fully restored, both cosmetically and mechanically with photographic documentation by the Ferrari garage in Mulhouse.
In 1997, the DB6 was sold to a certain Mr. Leca, living in Toulouse. In 1999 it was once again sold to its most recent owner who kept the DB6 in a large private collection in Western France from 1999 until recently. During this ownership, the DB6 has been maintained when and where needed. The total mileage accumulated to date is 70,000 kilometers.
Currently in the process of a concours level 'body off' restoration by Desmond J Smail Ltd, the car will be restored to original specification with the benefit of its matching numbers engine rebuilt to 4.2L unleaded specification. Currently being finished in Cumberland Grey with Red Leather, further bespoke options can be considered by the new owner.
