Chassis no. DB63155R; Engine no. 4002327. RHD, 3995/282hp, ZF 5-speed gearbox, wire wheels, rear defrost, woodrim steering wheel, Motorola radio, power aerial.

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.

Condition definitions
Condition #1: Concours
Condition #1 vehicles are the best in the world. The visual image is of the best vehicle, in the right colors, driving onto the lawn at the finest concours. Perfectly clean, the vehicle has been groomed down to the tire treads. Painted and chromed surfaces are mirror-like. Dust and dirt are banned, and materials used are correct and superbly fitted. The one word description for #1 vehicles is “concours.“
Condition #2: Excellent
#2 vehicles could win a local or regional show. They can be former #1 vehicles that have been driven or have aged. Seasoned observers will have to look closely for flaws, but will be able to find some not seen by the general public. The paint, chrome, glass and finishes will all appear as excellent. No excessive smoke will be seen on startup, no unusual noises will emanate from the engine. The vehicle will drive as a new vehicle of its era would. The one word description for #2 vehicles is “excellent.“
Condition #3: Good
#3 vehicles could possess some, but not all of the issues of a #4 vehicle, but they will be balanced by other factors such as a fresh paint job or a new, correct interior where applicable. #3 vehicles drive and run well, but might have some incorrect parts. These vehicles are not used for daily transportation but are ready for a long tour without excuses, and the casual passerby will not find any visual flaws. “Good” is the one word description of a #3 vehicle.
Condition #4: Fair
#4 vehicles are daily drivers, with flaws visible to the naked eye. The chrome might have pitting or scratches, the windshield might be chipped. Paintwork is imperfect, and perhaps the body has a minor dent. Split seams or a cracked dash, where applicable, might be present. No major parts are missing, but the wheels could differ from the originals, or other non- stock additions might be present. A #4 vehicle can also be a deteriorated restoration. “Fair” is the one word that describes a #4 vehicle.
Condition #5: Poor
Running, but battered, incomplete, and perhaps rusty.
Condition #6: Parts car
Parts car.
