1967 Aston Martin DB6 Shooting Brake by FLM Panelcraft

Innes Ireland was a hugely successful F1 driver who also won the Tourist Trophy driving a Ferrari 250 GTO and campaigned several marques during his international racing career, including Lotus and Cobras, and having great success in GT40s and, of course, the Aston Martin DB4GT and project cars. This Aston Martin DB6 Vantage, chassis number DB6/3310/R, was bought new by Innes Ireland in 1967. In 1969, Ireland took the car to coachbuilders FLM Panelcraft in London to be converted into only two shooting brakes they produced on the DB6 chassis. Innes Ireland was the president of the British Racing Driver’s Club until he died in 1993.
