Description

Manufactured between October 1958 and June 1963, the DB4 developed through no fewer than five series. However, it should be made clear that the cars were not thus designated by the factory, this nomenclature having been suggested subsequently by the Aston Martin Owners Club to aid identification as the model evolved. The first series had already undergone a number of improvements, including the fitting of heavy-duty bumpers after the first 50 cars, before the second series arrived in January 1960. A front-hinged bonnet, bigger brake callipers and an enlarged sump were the major changes made on the Series II, while the third series featured separate rear lights, two bonnet stays, and a host of improvements to the interior fittings. Manufactured between September 1961 and October 1962, the fourth series was readily distinguishable by its shallower bonnet intake, recessed rear lights and new grille with seven vertical bars. The final, fifth, series was built on a 3.5′ longer wheelbase (allowing for increased legroom and a larger boot) and gained 15′ wheels, an electric radiator fan and the DB4GT-type instrument panel.
‘The Aston Martin DB4 was perhaps the finest compromise which the David Brown-owned company ever achieved between exceptionally high-quality, exceptionally high-performance, exceptionally lavish finishing and yet properly contained overall size and weight – a great British product, benefiting from the styling input of Touring of Milan…’ – Motors, 1965.
Presented in excellent condition throughout, this wonderful example of the iconic DB4 has undergone a comprehensive restoration in recent years. Included in its history file, are a swathe of invoices totalling just under £200,000, which detail all of the work that has been done.
Now ready to attend any concourse event and compete against the best, not to be missed.
