1967 Aston Martin DB 6
Perhaps no car has achieved such an iconic status as that of the DB series from Aston Martin. Made famous by the movie Goldfinger featuring a young Sean Connery as agent 007, the Aston Martin instantly became recognizable all over the world. The fact that such a car was available to the general public made it even more attractive. Of course with a sticker price of $12,000 in the mid-1960s, it was definitely not something that everyone could afford, but for a select few who had the desire for outstanding performance and a large bank account, the DB was a car that offered an image that was hard to beat. The DB6 made its introduction at the 1965 London Motor Show and the conservative and tasteful design was well received by the gentlemen’s sports car crowd.
The 1967 Aston Martin DB6 offered here is an outstanding example that holds supreme reliability and stunning good looks. Powered by Aston’s four-liter dual overhead cam inline six, performance can only be called spectacular, just as a proper sports car should be. This engine is also fitted with triple SU carburetors, adding greatly to its stellar performance. Most impressive is that this Aston is fitted with a 3-speed automatic transmission making driving or touring a true pleasure. This DB6 is a car that is mechanically sound and is completely reliable in any situation. Finished in silver with a blue interior, this Aston is a great looking sports car that displays the DB6 heritage in fine fashion.
Produced from 1965 to 1971, the DB6 had the longest production run of any of the previous DB series cars from Aston. British sports cars have always held a certain allure and the Aston Martin DB6 is a car that does not disappoint. The popularity of the DB6 was recently in the spotlight once again as Prince William and Kate Middleton, now known as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, used a DB6 on their wedding day on their drive from Buckingham Palace. This fine example of the Aston Martin heritage is fully ready for touring in grand fashion.
