1970 Aston Martin DB6 Mk2 Vantage Volante (manual)
In 1965 Aston Martin produced the DB6 coupe, closely followed in 1966 by the convertible referred to as the 'Volante'
During production, as was the way, revisions to the model continued and in 1969 the Mk 2 was launched.
This incorporated changes such as flared wheel arches, power steering as standard, wider wheels and tyres, revised gear ratios, with Vantage engine options with three weber 45 DCOE carburetors and 'Coolair' air conditioning. In addition to this the option of automatic transmission was very popular.
Production of the Mk 2 was followed by 39 convertible (Volante) models. Offered at £4662 plus tax !
Out of the 39 cars produced only Three had the combination of Vantage engine and five speed manual gearbox.
The most famous of these being that of HRH Prince Charles of course.
Well here we have one of the other two original cars.
This is chassis number DB6 Mk2VC/3772/R and has now been in the same family for 30 plus years.
In fact being repatriate by Son after Father sold the cars some years earlier.
The car is very original and unrestored with just 70000miles from new. Although sympathetically being maintained through out.
Over more recent times the car has been little used but remains in good usable order through out. Probably being last seen in public back in 1989 when it featured at the NEC car show on the AMOC stand.
Such a rare car commands a high value of course. But for more information please contact David Eales at Oselli
