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 gearbox was 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 ROE's 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 was transformed. The current owner invested a generous sum of money into this complete restoration, allowing ‘2594’ to return to the open road. ROE attempted to preserve and restore original components, providing an authentic feel. The motor car also underwent a complete mechanical rebuild to the underside, suspension, brakes, axle/differential, and engine bay. The engine was completely stripped and rebuilt to its original vantage specification, along with the automatic gearbox.
The photos below are the same ones used in a photobook which ROE designed for the client. The book's cover was carefully crafted from the same Connolly Vaumol leather hide used within the car’s interior.
By providing you with the photos from within the album ROE are inviting you to also view the exhaustive works carried out to bring DB6/2594/R back to life.
