Classic Aston Martin DB6’s do not become available for sale at an auction too often but it is rarer still to come across one that is a “barn find”. Well, if you are an Aston Martin fan then now may be your chance to own one.
This is because, a right hand drive 1966 Aston Martin DB6 with an automatic gear box is being auctioned by Stacey’s Auctioneers and Valuers on the 7th May 2017 at the Essex Classic Car Auctions. Despite requiring full restoration work, it has an estimated sale price of £180,000 to £220,000.
Apparently, twenty-five years ago, this classic, sought after vehicle was placed in a barn having had its engine removed with a view to painting the bodywork. However, the car remained in the barn until recently and is now available for sale. It is reported that the instruments inside the car are still in situ and the lighting and chrome work on the outside of the vehicle are said to be in place. The engine is still there albeit it will not be firmly attached.
It would appear that whoever may decide to buy this rare classic car is going to have to spend some time restoring it or pay someone else to do the work. Hopefully, it will not be too long before it is restored to its former glory and is in perfect working order as there are few sounds that beat the engine noise of an Aston Martin.
