This DB6 saloon was initially registered in November 1967, the first registered keeper being a John (Johnny) Ireland from Wolverhampton, Industrialist and Chairman of Wolverhampton Wanderers Football Club! It was then sold to Scottish Motor Services in Glasgow in 1986 and then to a Mr Cleanthi of Coulsdon Surrey in 1995. The car was purchased by the last keeper in 2001 with the intention of converting it to Rally spec to compete in the 2003 Arctic Rally.
The 'no expense spared' conversion was carried out by Desmond J Smail from 2002 to 2003. Desmond was so confident in the quality of his work that he accompanied the owner on the rally himself!!
This car has since successfully competed in many other rallies from 2003 to 2009 as follows: 15th Classic Pamplona, 15th Winter Monte Carlo, 2nd Emerald Isle, 16th Winter Monte Carlo, 3rd Emerald Isle, 17th Winter San Remo, 4th Emerald Isle, Rally of the Tests, Rome Liege, 20th Classic Cortina. For all these events it has been maintained and prepared by Desmond J Smail.

Some of the main rally preparation includes the following.
4.2 Cosworth spec engine conversion, motor sport suspension front and rear, motor sport brakes front and rear, Sparco seats and harness, full insulation, twin fire extinguisher system, fire resistant bulkhead, long range tank, roll cage trimmed in leather, towing eyes front and rear, large mud flaps, driving lamps, air conditioning, power steering, rally spec wiring loom, oil coolers, specialist trip meter, undertray protection, motor sport prop shaft and aluminium multi core radiator.
All of the conversion and maintenance is fully documented.
A perfect car for anyone wishing to do some serious rallying or take advantage of all the upgrades and convert back to a road going car?
