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.
