Luckily, the company was rescued from liquidation by an industrialist by the name of David Brown. While the first post-war Aston, the 2-Litre Sports, only found 14 buyers, the car that followed would be a resounding success, with its W.O.

The 2/4 was a development of the well received DB2. The Aston-Martin DB2 appealed to only a limited market because it had just two seats and a very small boot compartment.

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.
