1954 Aston Martin DB2/4 Chassis No LML626
Withdrawn from sale last year as I realised there were certain jobs I wanted to do before passing on to a new owner. The improvements are now complete and includes:
* Complete brake overhaul and reline
* New wheels and period Pirelli Cinturato tyres
* Complete carpet replacement in correct Wilton
* New headlamp units
* New Clutch
* Full service
I have owned this car for 44 years. It was my everyday transport for the first six after which I completely dismantled it and rebuilt it, sympathetically restoring and retaining as many of the factory fitted components as possible. It came first in class in AMOC concourse before I started using it regularly again but not as everyday transport.
The engine was rebuilt less than 5000 miles ago, the work included fitting a Farndon Crankshaft, new liners and pistons and Arrow steel H section conrods all fully balanced before assembly
There is nothing missing from this car and it has no modern enhancements. It is exactly as it would have come out of the factory so there would be no problem in obtaining a FIVA ID card and of course it is eminently eligible for the Mille Miglia and would stand a very good chance of being selected.
It is fitted with a pair of period bucket seats similar to the Mk2 DB2/4s for better support but of course, I still have the original seats and are included in the sale as is an original leather bound drivers handbook, original logbook and lots of receipts and photos. The mono photo within the images uploaded was taken when it was brand new and being loaded onto a cross channel ferry by crane for a tour of Europe.
There are a few minor cosmetic blemishes as it is over 30 years since rebuild but has a nice patina, which nowadays is appreciated more than a brand new ‘blinged up’ restoration.
Priced to sell and still give the new owner very real investment potential for the future, with no horrors to find, just use it and enjoy it.
