This DB6 Vantage was ordered by and delivered new to a Dr N Power, via H R Owen. It was supplied with the Vantage engine, 3.73:1 final drive, limited slip differential and chromed wire wheels (build sheet on file). The Aston was serviced by the factory up to 1972, the details being recorded on build sheet's reverse. Correspondence on file from Aston Martin to Dr Power in July 1974 details works required totaling £2,000. Dr Power then entrusted the DB6 to renowned marque specialists R S Williams Ltd, who carried out the works. R S Williams subsequently serviced the car (in 1981/82), which included fitting a low-ratio steering rack. A smaller wood-rim steering wheel has been fitted also.
In May 1990 the Aston was given to Pugsley & Lewis for a full restoration. The car was stripped to bare metal, all chassis rot cut out, new sills fitted and then re-sprayed, while the engine, gearbox rear axle and suspension were rebuilt. These works were completed in June 1992 at a cost of circa £30,000. R S Williams serviced the DB6 in 1996 and again in July/August 2008, the latter bill (for £8,000) detailing a front suspension rebuild, general maintenance, ignition system overhaul, carburettor tune, making both electric windows work, and fitting new tyres, shock absorbers and brake pipes. There were further works carried out in May 2009 to modify the exhaust and in July 2015 R S Williams again serviced the car and fitted a set of refurbished wire wheels.
This delightful DB6 Vantage displays a total of only 30,000 miles on the odometer, and in the last 34 years has covered only 8,461 miles. In very good condition, it is offered with the aforementioned build sheet and invoices. This car stayed with the Power family from new until 2015, when it entered a private collection.
