Battered 1967 Aston Martin DB6 Vantage Barn Find Going Under the Gavel

The Aston Martin DB6 represented the end of an era, and the culmination of the design and style theme brought about by the late 1950s DB4 model. Its successor, the DBS, went for an angular 1970s look that is nowhere near as elegant, I think, as the curvaceous earlier examples…

Now, a white DB6 Vantage from 1967 is set to go under the hammer at auction, on November 13. It’s a barn find that hasn’t been used since the 1990s, and requires a full restoration, having done 86,057 miles or 138,495 km throughout its life.

It’s expected to go for between £60,000 – £90,000 (€71,100 – €106,700 or $95,300 – $142,935).

Currently owned by a garage owner “living in the far north of Scotland,” it comes with detailed history that includes hand-written notes regarding a restoration that it underwent in the late 1970s, early 1980s.

Its power comes from a four-liter straight-six engine that in Vantage trim made 325 hp, enabling it to nudge 150 mph or 240 km/h flat out. However, by the looks of it, this particular one needs a bit of attention before such an attempt enters the realm of the plausible/possible.

Check it out in the gallery after the virtual jump.
