Would you believe that Aston Martin only sold fourteen of the first DB2 series? That’s how rough things were for the iconic manufacturer at the end of the Second World War. Fortunately, an industrialist named David Brown saved the company, and by 1959 they made the Mark III edition of the DB2/4 and sold 551 of these beauties.
This particular 1958 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk III Drophead Coupe was restored in the early 2000s. The project cost more than $422,000, and was a complete body-off, nut-and-bold restoration including triple SU carburettors, a dual exhaust system, and a five-speed manual gearbox conversion.
