Announced at the 1965 London Motor Show, the new convertible Aston Martin on the latest DB6 platform was the first to carry the now familiar name ‘Volante’. Aston Martin built 140 DB6 Volantes, 68 of which were fitted with the Borg Warner three-speed automatic transmission, a popular no-cost option.
According to a copy of the build sheet that accompanies the car, chassis DBVC/3636/R was delivered new to WS Giles, Greystones, The Ridgeway, Cuffley, Herts in June 1967, the car was registered OMF 367E which it still carries. As delivered, ‘3636’ was finished in Dubonnet Rosso with Natural Connolly leather interior and like all regular Volantes it was equipped with a power hood. Extras included chrome spoked wheels with triple ear spinners, a power aerial and the factory’s excellent hydraulic power steering. In recent years the previous owner commissioned a full respray of the car in discreet Dark Blue and the interior was retrimmed to a high standard in Tan.
