Evaluation: A UK car from new with unknown history up to 1984. The current engine was fitted in 1996 and later it got an ‘unleaded’ cylinder head conversion, a gearbox overhaul, and a new clutch. Good panel fit but with older chipped paint. Average chrome work and dusty wheels. Aged carpets coupled with creased and cracked leather. Bought by the current owner in 2007 and fresh out of many years in storage, so needs recommissioning.
Bottom Line: This DB6 went into its current ownership (and soon after into storage) at the 2007 Goodwood Festival of Speed sale, where it brought £51,000 ($96,446 at the time). Pretty good return on investment, then, especially for a car that has been neglected and, with its replacement engine and unclear early history, was never a gem to begin with.
The new owner, meanwhile, is already into this Aston for more than they should be. Getting it back on the road will be expensive and will be a wait. There are running, driving DB6s out there for not much more money than this.
