I, for various reasons, need to compile specifically with Microsoft Visual C++ Version 6 

What product license should I purchase so I can retrograde the license to use version 6 C++?

I doubt you can purchase VC6 from Microsoft. At least, it's not available via MSDN subscription (while, say, Visual Basic 6.0 and Visual C++ 4.2 are).

You can find copies for sale on Amazon or Ebay or similar. Whether this would grant you a legal license, I won't speculate. If it matters, consult your lawyer.
