The Aston Martin DB2/4 was Aston Martin’s 1953 to 1957 Grand Tourer. It was available in different models, such as the 2+2 hatchback – also known as a Saloon – as a Drophead Coupé and a 2-seat Fixed Head Coupe, over 3 different series (MK). Aston Martin’s DB2/4 was based on the DB2, which it soon replaced after debuting. The most significant changes between the two models were the wraparound windscreen, which was iconic for the DB2/4, larger bumpers and the repositioned headlights.
This Aston Martin DB2/4 MK I is a true piece of art and almost a shame to restore. This Australian Barn-find is completely original and has been untouched for over 50 years, sitting in the dry fields of Northern state of Queensland. The evidence of the red desert sand is still visible on the body as is the original sea green paint. The car still has its original Beige interior making it a great colour combination for concours restoration.
From what we can gather the car has seen two owners in its lifetime, the last parking the car some 50 years ago with only 62151 Miles on the Odometer and leaving the car in great original shape. This Aston screams originality and comes with its matching numbers engine, windows and parts.
Seldom will one come across a DB2/4 with such clean body lines and correct panel fittings and therefore makes this car a dream restoration project. We have seen few restored examples that have such straight body-lines.
S2- Classic Cars can preform a concours restoration on this Aston Martin if one wishes to do so.
Originally delivered to the UK the car has all the original parts still present and comes complete with documentation and manual. The Aston Martin MKI is the last of the DB’s produced which is Mille Miglia eligible.
