1956 Rare and Immaculate Aston Martin DB2/4 Mark II Drophead For Sale

Manufactured in October 1955, the copy of the original build sheet in this lovely car’s comprehensive history file shows that she was sold as a demonstrator to Brooklands of Bond Street on 23rd August 1956. The prototype of the Mk II, chassis AM300/1101 was the very first of 15 of the Mk II Dropheads, 9 of which were in this right-hand drive form. Starting its life as a works demonstrator, the vehicle was equipped with the now standard 3-litre VB6J engine which produced 140 bhp. The Aston Martin Owners Club register also notes that the prototype was fitted with dual exhaust, which was a popular sporting option that customers could specify. The second private owner of the car was a US serviceman who took the car back to the US on his retirement and it was from California that the car was acquired by a Swiss resident. In 2001 the vehicle was sent to Roos Engineering for a full restoration, for which invoices are on file. Finishing in 2002, the Aston Martin was returned to its original glory. Resplendent in the original two-tone colours of black with a beige hood and red leather interior, the Aston Martin looked as good as it did when it left Newport Pagnell over half a century ago. Post restoration, in 2003, the DB2/4 passed from a Swiss dealer to its current owner, who has maintained the stunning beauty of this rare and original Aston Martin. The car handles as beautifully as she presents and comes complete with original tools and instruction book. Part of a larger collection of classic cars, she has only been used occasionally, running “round the block” to keep systems working. The DB2 and DB2/4 were stepping stones to David Brown’s ambition to win Le Mans but were, at the same time, some of the most sought-after cars of the 1950’s for their innovation, good looks and performance. In more recent times, they have carved out a niche in a frantic classic car market where buyers have recognised their qualities and their comparative rarity which always helps rationalise an investment. And what an example of a Feltham car is AM300/1101 – the first of anything has a cachet all of its own, being the first of just 9 right hand drive examples adds rarity. Blend in a sound, traceable history, a restoration by Internationally renowned restorers, Roos Engineering totalling 126,566.40 CHFand a full set of tools and documentation and you have the best of all worlds. The best of the best in the market today.
