Bearing in mind our location, we’re very pleased to be able to offer an exceptionally original Aston Martin DB6 MK1, which has spent its entire life in the North West of England, and which presents in the colours in which it was first delivered (build sheet on file). Uniquely, the specialist motor engineer (ex-Formula Atlantic racer and BRDC member Cyd Williams) who maintained this car during its daily use by Mr Cussons Goodwin, more than forty years ago, is well known to us…..and remembers XTE999H as a well-handling, deceptively quick and distinctive Aston Martin. With documented history from new and extensive maintenance by each of its three, cherishing owners, DB6/4043/R is now immediately available. SOLD
