In 1977, the car was acquired by the current owner’s Father and it was transferred to the current owner in 1987.
When the current owner took stewardship of the car, it had been unused for a number of years and a programme of gentle refurbishment took place with 2000 marking the major highlights which were:
• An engine rebuild by Ian Moss of Portsmouth where the car was adapted for unleaded fuel and the capacity increased from 3.7 litres to 4.0 litre.
• Bare metal repaint conducted by VRV Automobiles of Felpham
• Bumpers replaced with stainless steel versions from RS Williams
The final elements of the refurbishment waited until 2011 when the interior was completely renewed and the car’s electrics rewired. The owner's commitment to this car is seen from his reaction to concerns about the car when considering to put it on sale. Local Aston Martin specialist, Bill Goodall of Newlands Motors, undertook some underbonnet refurbishment and addressed some typical rectification in the chassis/sill area - an investment by the owner of around £20,000!
The result is a DB4 that an enthusiast would want to own – over 40 years with the one family, refurbished with affection and proudly owned.
As the original iteration of the Superleggera design from Touring, the DB4 remains one of the best loved examples of this classic design. With a traceable ownership history and long-term family ownership, presented in a popular and classic colour combination, this is a great opportunity for any enthusiast to add one of the best to their collection.
