1954 Aston Martin DB 2/4 Bertone Coupe Chassis Number LML/765 - Engine Number VB6J/213 One-of-a-kind Designed by Bertone's own Franco Scaglione, this unique body has a pronounced wraparound rear window and neatly creased fenders. The interior has a very unusual dash which looks more modern than that of the other Bertone built cars. Originally LML/765 was to be a prototype for a run of cars, but this was scrapped as Aston Martin refused to supply any more chassis. The coupe was delivered new to Henry Pagezy of Paris, France; this is the only Coupe built by Bertone on an Aston Martin DB2/4 chassis.
1953 Aston Martin DB2/4 Allemano Chassis Number: LML/761 Engine Number: VB6J/197 One-Off! Best in Class 1994 Pebble Beach! This fine example is very unique in having an Italian coachwork designed by Giovanni Savonuzzi and built by Allemano of Torino, Italy. The rolling chassis was ordered by a close friend of David Brown, Mr. J. O'Hana of Casablanca, and shipped the car to Allemano Serafino of Torino. With a new Berlinetta body and an engine with DB3 specifications, Mr. O'Hana enjoyed driving and racing the car in Casablanca. The car come to the USA in the late 1970's to its new owner Alan Lampert. In the early 1990's Mr. Lampert spent nearly $150,000.00 on the restoration project, only to sell the car to Brian Hoyt before it was complete. Mr. Hoyt, who owns Perfect Reflection, a restoration shop in the San Francisco bay area, finished the restoration and brought the car to Pebble Beach in 1994. All the hard work paid off with this English car winning the "Italian Coachwork Class" which was a milestone at Pebble Beach then. Without a doubt this is the finest Aston Martin DB2/4 with special coachwork available. Aston Martin Historian and Archivst, Roger Stowers said about this car "
