The Aston Martin DB2/4 was introduced in 1953 as a successor to the DB2 and produced until 1957.

In the first year of production, the Aston Martin DB2/4 was equipped with the same Lagonda six-in-line engine with double overhead camshafts as found in the DB2 Vantage. A 2.6 L with 125hp and 93kW. That could of course be better, and later in the same year a 2.9 L version was introduced with 140 hp and 104 kW. This engine was good for a top speed of 193 km/h.

The MKII was a major advance over the MKI especially aesthetically. The roofline was modified, the taillights were nicely incorporated into the rear fins. It also got a much nicer rear with a third door and a large rear window.

Of the only 199 DB2/4 MkIIs produced in total, this one with chassis number 1229 is one of the last 70. The car is still equipped with its original engine and gearbox, so the car has matching numbers.

The DB 2/4 has an extensive well-documented history, consisting of invoices and restoration reports.

The color combination is also very tasteful, the body is painted in Maroon. A very nice contrast with the red Connolly leather interior. The Cashmere headlining is also very beautiful.

This DB2/4 was originally delivered new in the United Kingdom. And registered on Dutch license plate since 2008.

This Aston Martin is in very good condition and has been restored. A very extensive report is available on this. The paintwork is still in very good condition. The body has good fits of the sills, fenders, doors, hood and trunk lid.
