A £1 Million Shooting Brake

Quirky Aston Martin DB6 Vantage shooting brake goes to auction with a reserve of just under £1 million

1966 is best remembered as the year that England won the World Cup, but now someone with very deep pockets has the chance to acquire one of that year’s finest vintage cars.

Offered by Bonhams at the Quail motorcar auction in Los Angeles, California on 14th August with an estimate of £780,000 to £930,000 ($1 million to $1.2 million, €850,000 to €1 million or درهم3.7 million to درهم4.4 million), an Aston Martin DB6 Vantage shooting brake is one of only six ever built by Harold Radford.

 

Commissioned new for a gentleman realtor named Middleton George Charles Train – “Middy” to his mates – the example offered suited its owners passions for duck hunting and golf. With its commodious boot, the car most certainly provided ample space to accommodate clubs and guns and in addition the vehicle features the “novelty” of a Webasto sun roof and a luggage rack on the roof.

Trimmed with Connolly blue-grey leather and painted in black, the car has covered 50,000 miles and is offered from the estate of its second owner, one David L. Van Schaick. He acquired the car in October 1976 and “used it sporadically” and as a result Bonhams describe the vehicle as “running well” and “in remarkably good order for its age.”

 

They add: “[This car is] an absolute magnet for people of all ages, from the ‘cognoscenti’ to the ‘innocenti,’ the phrase ‘that’s cool’ [is] the most common way to describe it.”

 

Elsewhere, the £1.25 million ($1.63 million, €1.39 million or درهم5.99 million) 2012 Aston Martin Jet 2+2 shooting brake we featured in December 2019 has been reduced in price to £800,000 ($1 million, €888,000 or درهم3.8 million).
