According to the build record, this DB6 MK2 Vantage was completed in April 1970 in its original Olive paintwork with Pigskin interior, Vantage engine, Manual Gearbox and two seat belts. It eventually left the factory and was delivered to Eton Garages Ltd in Windsor Berkshire on the 5th November the same year.
It is understood from a previous sales record that the DB6 MK2 was first registered in Kent on 9th November 1970 although its first owner is unknown. The record states that its earliest known owner was a Mrs Susans of Guildford, Surrey who acquired the car in December 1983, followed by Frank Reeder & Sons (Performance and Specialist Cars) of Pewsey, Wiltshire, from April 1984. The Reeders undertook a complete restoration of the car between 1984 and 1986 and as a testament to their work the DB6 MK2 took a first place, a second and two thirds at concours events between 1986 and 1990. Frank Reeder kept the car in a heated garage throughout the 1990’s with occasional use before parting with it in 2001when it was sold to a Robert Stevens from Gloucester. Stevens kept the car maintained with the Reeders and also asked them to sell it for him a short time later in 2003 when it passed to a Paul Housego from Devon. Mr Housego kept the car until 2008 during which time it was maintained by marque specialists Goldsmith & Young. Since its purchase in 2008 the DB6 MK2 has been dry stored with little use and remains in excellent condition.
Only 240 DB6 MK2 saloons were built and just 59 being in RHD Vantage Manual specification, one of those extremely rare Astons that are now so sought after!
