ORIGINAL LEFT HAND DRIVE Brand Aston Martin Type DB4 Color Silver Interior Red Year of build 1961 Price € 685.000,- ASTON MARTIN DB4 1 of only 45 original left hand drive series II Aston Martin DB4’s. Newly delivered to fanatic race driver Resprayed in attractive James Bond color scheme When it was first unveiled, the Aston Martin’s DB4 was a tremendous step forward for the firm, and represented a technologically and aesthetically impressive car that has now reached cult status for collectors and casual enthusiasts alike. Much of this has been fueled by the substantially similar DB5’s association with James Bond, but many seasoned collectors prefer the compact dimensions and purity of the early DB4. From a technological standpoint, the car was quite impressive, with an all new 3.7 liter twin-cam inline-6, disc brakes all round, and rack and pinion steering. The bodywork, by Touring of Milan, is achingly gorgeous, and constructed in their famous Superleggera style of aluminum skin wrapped around small tubes. ABOUT THIS SPECIFIC EXAMPLE This example, is one of only forty-five left-hand-drive Series II DB4s recorded in the 2005 Aston Martin Owners Club Register. The Aston was original
Description This particular DB4 Series 2 is on the market for the first time in nearly 40 years, with the previous owner, Mr D Banton, having bought the car in December of 1976 and has just undergone a complete restoration through ourselves. DB4/449/R was first registered on the 17th November 1960 where it was sold to a Mrs N Cotton of Bournemouth, then sold to a Mr S Dicks of London in 1965, whereupon it was sold to Mr Richard Butt of Grays who subsequently sold it to his brother, a Mr (Roger) Butt who kept the car until 1976. Mr D Banton used the car regularly in and around London and perhaps more fitting for a car of this style, slightly further afield with trips across Europe to the French Alps for skiing holidays. In 1983 Mr D Banton sent the car for a full bare metal respray, keeping the original colour of Dubonnet Red. Other work includes receipts in the history file dating back to 1976 with hand written invoices from Ian Moss, Aston Martin specialists. Further maintenance was carried out in the late 70’s with bills from Aston Martin and Aston specialist Hyde Vale and later in 1996 with Ian Moss once again. Also in the history file is a copy of the buff log book, handbook an

Innocenti was an Italian machinery works originally established by Ferdinando Innocenti in 1920. After World War II, the company was famous for many years for Lambretta scooters and from 1961 to 1976, Innocenti built, under licence, the Mini with 998cc and 1,275cc engines. At the November 1960 Turin Motor Show, the 950 Spider was presented. Styled by Ghia and produced by OSI near Milan, the style was classical of the era with rear-wheel drive and aesthetically, with small rear fins; the formula of a small car with a small engine and small price tag would meet the demand of the Italian public. From 1963, the car was equipped with a new engine with increased capacity up to 1098cc, designated 'S' which also offered small aesthetic changes and the adoption of disc brakes. This fantastic little car is believed to be one of only two in the UK and one of only 2,000 made. It is the later 'S' model with the bigger engine, twin carburetors and disc brakes. This car was imported to the UK in 2015 from Rome and has had four owners; it is now registered in the UK with an MoT test certificate valid for a year. The owner believes it underwent a major mechanical rebuild in 2010 and has had a new f

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 JD Classics are delighted to offer this very rare Aston Martin DB4 Series V Vantage, being one of only three which were originally fitted with an automatic transmission. The DB4 was introduced in October 1958 and by the time it was discontinued in 1963 it had evolved considerably with five distinct series being recognised. The last of these, the Series V, closely resembled its successor, the DB5, with a 3.5 inch longer wheelbase, which allowed for increased leg room and boot space, and more cabin space provided by a higher roof line. It also featured 15 inch wheels, an electric radiator fan as standard and a DB4GT instrument panel. With only some 50 cars built in this final incarnation of the DB4, the Series V has always been a rare and highly desirable Aston Martin. The example offered here is an original UK RHD car delivered new in August 1963 to Mr H Seligman of Buckinghamshire, finished in Goodwood Green and its rarity is enhanced by the fact that it is one of only three cars that were fitted with a Borg-Warner automatic transmission from new. Interestingly the original factory build sheet reveals several other non-standard features i
Chassis No: DB4/1119/R Engine 370/1074/SS ] The Aston Martin DB4 was produced between October 1958 and June 1963. It featured highly evocative coachwork, designed by Touring of Milan using their “Superleggera” system of alloy panels fixed to a tubular frame. The new engine was an all alloy, twin overhead camshaft, six cylinder unit of 3.7 litres. The DB4 evolved through five ‘Series’ as developments were introduced. This car is a rare and beautiful example of the ultimate specification; an original right hand drive ‘Series V’ Vantage and is correctly finished in its original colours of ‘Fiesta Red’ with fawn leather to the interior. The up-rated Vantage engine specification had been introduced as an optional extra in 1961. This car therefore benefits from three SU HD8 carburettors, 9:1 compression ratio and larger valves producing 266 bhp at 5,750 rpm. In addition the car was fitted from new with an oil cooler, which was another optional extra and a high-ratio back axle. This Aston Martin DB4 has an impressive mechanical specification and this is complemented by the styling improvements that had been introduced for the ‘Series V’ which principally were covered headlamps and the DB4
1963 Aston Martin DB4 Convertible 1 of only 70 built Aston Martin Bristol is honoured to offer for sale one of the most desirable and iconic Aston Martin models ever produced; the DB4 Convertible. The DB4 heralded a new era for Aston Martin and put the company back in competition with other high performance sports car manufacturers. The convertible model was announced at the London Motor Show in 1961 and featured a 3.6 litre straight six, which produced 240 horsepower. The DB4 was one of the first production cars capable of 0-60 mph in less than 10 seconds. Our car is finished in stunning Caribbean Pearl with a Dark Blue leather interior – its original factory colour combination from 1963. This DB4 Convertible has a wealth of history, notably including a full suspension rebuild in 2005, a complete engine and engine bay rebuild in 2008, bodywork restoration in 2015 and a complete re-trim in 2016. The car comes complete with a fully restored detachable colour-coded hardtop and cover, which in itself is an incredibly rare option. This gorgeous DB4 Convertible has had a substantial amount of coverage at various Concours events over the years, including numerous entries into the Aston Martin Owners Club Concours, the Royal Windsor Concours and the Louis Vuitton Concours D’Elegance. Every entry is recorded through photographs, entry slips and newspaper cuttings, which all add to the unique and comprehensive history of this car. Linking Aston Martin’s renowned style and performance with the joys of the open-air, the DB4 Convertible is the rarest Aston Martin road car of the David Brown era (with the exception of the Zagato), with a total production of just 70 examples. What’s more, this truly remarkable example is one of only five DB4 Convertible’s known to exist with a matching hardtop.

Mayfair 020 7125 1400 | Maldon 01621 879579 1962 Aston Martin DB4 Series 4 This DB4 was originally supplied on 31st January 1962 through agent ‘J.Blake’ to its first owner Mr Richard Whittaker of Blackpool. Finished in Off White coachwork with Terracotta hide, a very popular colour combination in period and optioned with Overdrive, chrome wire wheels, heated rear screen and chrome GB digits. Factory service records on file show that the car returned to the works in May 1962 for a replacement shock absorber and later returned in March1967 for a new head gasket, fan belt, spark plugs and engine tune. Understood to have passed through the hands of four private owners in the north of England from 1974 through to 2001, at which point the DB4 was acquired by marque specialists R.S.Williams who made it the subject of a comprehensive restoration in house. The body and chassis were fully restored and bare metalled, re-painted in Black Pearl metallic coachwork and the interior re-trimmed in Deep Burgundy Connolly hide and the DB4 was converted to left hand drive steering with a KM/H speedometer. The engine was fully rebuilt to 4.2L with an unleaded cylinder head and triple carburettors were
Chassis Number: DB4/818/L Engine Number: 370/791 UK Registration Number: TBA Date of first reg: 29th November 1961 Exterior colour: Aegean Blue Hood: Interior colour: Black Leather Current Odometer reading: 71300 km Mileage Warranty: Steering: Left Transmission: Manual Options: Chrome Wire Wheels Background Background: When the single pale primrose DB4 was launched at the Paris Salon in October 1958, Marcel Blondeau, the French distributor for Aston Martin approached John Wyer on the stand with tears in his eyes “This is not a car, it is a folly, but I can sell as many as you can supply.” With a top speed of 140 mph, it was one of the fastest four seaters in the world and was on a par with the best of Italian Grand Turismos. Not wholly surprising, given the decision to have this distillation of years of Feltham ideas designed by Touring of Milan using their “Superleggera” system. The body consisted entirely of aluminium mounted on a trellis of small diameter steel tubes welded together. Body panels were attached to the trellis and clinched around angle plates which were welded to the members with graphite pads. Items like windscreen, rear window frames an angle sections for the doo
Registration: TBA Chassis No: DB4GT/0158/R Engine No: 370/0145/GT Aston Martin were very aware that the benefits of their success on the race track were far greater than the costs of taking part and had a significant effect on sales and the public perception of the brand. The DB4, their new model for 1958, was a great success featuring the Tadek Marek all alloy engine and iconic coachwork by Touring, but the design team knew it was not really a high performance sports racer and were working on the ‘GT’ before the DB4 had entered production. To achieve the performance they were looking for the car needed to be lighter. This was principally achieved by shortening the wheelbase by 5 inches and making the body out of lightweight 18 gauge magnesium alloy as opposed to the weightier 16 gauge aluminium used for the DB4. Weight was shed wherever possible and accordingly the car had no rear seats, bumpers without over-riders and Borrani wheels. The weight saving was 185lbs and the car was also fitted with disc brakes all round, Perspex covers to the headlights and a large bonnet air-intake and another below the grill to service the oil cooler. The engine was uprated and notably fitted with
Registration No: FAS 302 Chassis No: DB4/272/R Aston Martin had all but withdrawn from racing by 1960; they had won Le Mans and the Constructor’s Championship in 1959 and felt that they could rest on their laurels. However, it quickly dawned on them that the benefits of their success on the track were far greater than the costs of taking part and had a significant effect on sales. Accordingly, shortly after the launch of the DB4 GT it was decided to get back into racing. They found the competition had grown even more formidable and they needed a faster, lighter and more competitive car. Initially Aston Martin approached Touring to see if they could come up with a new design, but their preferred coachbuilder already had its hands full with its own high volume work. However they introduced Aston Martin to the local firm of Zagato, a smaller company that could produce the specialist work required and in small numbers. However, at Zagato the project was given to a 23 year junior designer fresh from University, Ercole Spada. Despite his inexperience and as he recalls that he spent no more than a week on the main design and much of that polishing what he had produced in just a few days,
This Series 2 DB4 retains all of its particular- to- series body features, including the early ‘Art Deco’ rear lights, grille and bonnet scoop. It’s all a matter of taste, but these fittings do make the early DB4s purer for many collectors than the later cars. The engine is the original ‘matching numbers’ unit, but the cylinder head has been considerably upgraded some years ago to unleash a notable amount of the extra power potential that these units have in reserve. This includes special camshafts and porting, and a triple SU carb set-up. Not only is the engine straining at the leash when blipped from idle, but the performance on the open road is far more satisfying than a standard DB4. This lovely example was delivered on 26th November 1960 for the use of Mr John Bowthorpe, bearing the distinctive registration plate JB 720. Originally finished in Pale Primrose with black Connolly hide, the car has subsequently received a high quality colour change to a very attractive shade of deep red. Following two further owners in the UK and warranty work recorded until 1968 it was later purchased by the President of the Italian Section of the Aston Martin Owners Club, Massimo Meli. During his ownership in 1999 the publication Ruote Classiche used the car as a cover car in a 10page article. In 2011 it was brought back to the UK and was able to once again maintain the original ‘James Bond’ registration initials as delivered back in 1960. This new owner used the car at UK AMOC events over the years and had Aston Specialists check the car annually, only travelling a few hundred miles each year. With only 1,110 DB4s manufactured across all 5 series and prices of DB4s going skywards, we are delighted to offer this most useable Series 2. With options to drive or improve, this great driving Aston certainly represents investment with prices of restored cars now in excess of £500k.
Variant: Series II We are delighted to offer this beautiful Aston Martin DB4, immaculately finished in RSW Green with Tan full leather interior. The car was originally supplied by OKE Bros Ltd of Kingsbridge, Devon to Mrs Mary Crook in February 1961. The car then passed to Mr Charles N Hill of Sidmouth in April 1965. The third owner was Mr Colin Bond, who purchased the car in November 1966 and he registered it to his company Thompson Bros Ltd of Bridgewater in Somerset. The mileage at this time was 28,700 miles and Mr Bond managed to drive the car for a little over 6 years until poor health caused him to put the car into storage for almost 10 years. In 1981 the car was fully serviced and made ready for the road again, now showing 57,213 miles however, she only travelled a further 55 miles that year before being placed back into storage. In 1982 the car passed onto Mr Colin Bond's son and it remained in storage until February 1998, when it was then sold to its last keeper, who by chance had actually known the car and its previous owner since 1966. From 1999 until 2002 the car had been subject to a detailed restoration. The full bodywork restoration was carried out by Bodylines Specialist Panel Beaters and Spray Tec Restorations Ltd, with Motorman Engineering tackling the full detailing restoration. The engine was rebuilt to a 4.2 litre unleaded specification, complete with vantage cams. The original SU Carburettors were retained in order to maintain the original standard look. Other works which had been carried out include a full flow oil cooler and electric radiator fan, which have been hidden from view. The suspension has been uprated with new springs, a thicker anti roll bar and Koni shock absorbers to the front. A high ratio back axle with Powerlock limited slip differential has also been fitted. The front brakes have been uprated and new Borrani wire wheels fitted, complete with spinners (an original option from new). The entire restoration has kept originality coupled with practicality at the forefront of its mind. Any upgrades to the original specification have simply been to improve the comfort and drivability of the car, without altering the iconic features and stunning characteristics. In 2004, thanks to the absolutely superb restoration, this car won 1st place in the Elite Class at the Aston Martin Owners Club Concours, held at Woburn Abbey.
