1966 Aston Martin DB6 Vantage
Chassis Number: DB6/2594/R
Manufactured to Vantage specification, chassis number 'DB6/2594/R' was ordered with Borg Warner automatic transmission, chrome road wheels, heated rear window, 3-ear hubcaps, and power aerial. It’s worth noting that the automatic gear box is a special order for a Vantage. The Aston was sold new via H R Owen to BSP Industries of Borehamwood, Hertfordshire and was originally registered as BSP 1.
When our client purchased “NAN 941D” it was well weathered due to spending 25 years in storage. Off the road for half its lifetime, this original DB6 Vantage has now been transformed. The current owner has invested a generous sum of money into this complete restoration, allowing ‘2594’ to return to the open road. We have attempted to preserve and restore original components, providing an authentic feel. The motor car has also undergone a complete mechanical rebuild to the underside, suspension, brakes, axle/differential, and engine bay. The engine has been completely stripped and rebuilt to its original vantage specification, along with the automatic gearbox.
The photos below are the same ones used within a photobook which we designed for the client. The book's cover was carefully crafted from the same Connolly Vaumol leather hide as was used for the car’s interior.
By providing you with the photos from within the album we are inviting you to also view the exhaustive works carried out to bring DB6/2594/R back to life.
