Evaluation: Four-year restoration completed by Kevin Ray Restorations in 2021 with numerous but all tasteful mods. With the same family since 1982. Represented as a matching numbers Vantage. Exterior shows very well with no obvious signs of wear, and the seats have evidence of limited use. No evidence of corners being cut. All professional and fresh. Gorgeous enough to put on a show field but ideally suited for a long vintage tour or rally as well.
Bottom Line: Conventional wisdom holds that modifying a car sinks its value, but that isn’t universally true. Tasteful mods that improve a car’s reliability, usability and driving experience are widely accepted these days, and when the work is top notch (like on this DB6) it can even command a premium. In this case the premium was massive, beyond concours car money.
