Aston Martin DB6 in ‘James Bond’ Silver For Sale at Imperial War Museum Duxford

A six-figure Aston Martin DB6 in ‘James Bond’ Silver will be put up for sale after forty-six years with H&H Classics at Imperial War Museum, Duxford on March 21, 2018.

H&H Classics offers this lovely 1966 Aston MartinDB6 at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, for an estimated £170,000 to £210,000.

This will be the second Aston Martin DB6 that H&H Classics will have sold for this client. Some years ago the company achieved a price of £200,000 for a yellow version of the car.

Finished in Silver Birch, the same livery as James Bond’s iconic DB5, the four-seater grand tourer is understood to have covered just 81,000 miles from new. It was “put out to grass” albeit in a warm heated garage in 1979 and has been tenderly looked after for all of those 39 years by its owner, a veterinarian.

The car has matching chassis and engine numbers, and the preferred ZF five-speed manual gearbox. Taken off the road in 1979 and reupholstered by Chisholm to include headlining, door cards, carpets, and boot, it was treated to a bare metal repaint some six years ago plus new windscreen, unleaded cylinder head conversion (Aston Engineering), fresh tyres, and electronic ignition.

The Aston is owned by a retired vet living in Wales. When he bought the DB6, he and his wife used it as a family car.
