Evaluation: Delivered new in Switzerland. Represented as matching numbers. Tired paint with detail scratching throughout and several chips around the front of the hood. Large tough up and two shallow dents at the back of the driver’s door as well. Scratched window frames. Old, mildly discolored, and heavily wrinkled leather. Never fully restored and driven as intended. Looks solid enough to be an event car, but it has been sitting since 2007 and needs attention before actually using it in an event.
Bottom Line: With a superb DB4 GT on offer at Gooding and a genuine DB4 GT Zagato on offer over at RM it was easy to overlook this somewhat neglected “regular” DB4 at Bonhams. But the Quail bidders didn’t overlook it, they just appropriately discounted it for the attention it needs.
