A rare opportunity to restore a 1954 Aston Martin DB 2/4 Mark I 3-litre sports saloon to your exact specification. Arriving at DM Historics in Orient Blue with Beige interior. this soon to be stunning example was one of the first 451 DB 2/4 Mark off the production line. Delivered new to France in right-hand drive, the remained across the channel for the majority of its life. Once treated to full restoration in the late 2000s, this DB 2/4 offers a blank canvas to a lucky classic car enthusiast looking to make their mark on a piece of classic 50s British engineering and design.

History
This iconic Aston Martin DB 2/4 Mark I, has lived a long and well-kept life since first being delivered new to Paris, France. The first owner is believed to have been a rich Parisian and avid collector of classic Ferraris and Maseratis. After only a few years of ownership, the car was sold on and by 1958 the DB 2/4 had seen a further two owners before finding its long term custodian in the south of France.

In 2007 the DB 2/4 had been off the road for some 35 years, it was at this time that the car underwent extensive restoration using original parts from an official appointed manufacturer of genuine classic Aston Martin parts in Dorest, UK. The Aston Martin was finished in an original 1954 colour combination Orient Blue over Beige interior and returned to the road in 2013.

More recent years saw the DB 2/4 returned to its country of manufacture, accompanied with an original and extensive history file of documentation such as:

- Copy of the original guarantee form
- Bill of sale
- Numerous invoices (from UK Aston Martin specialist during restoration)
- Condition reports (2012-2015)
- List of all works and services carried out (including odometer readings)
- Current French Carte Grise and Contrôle Technique (valid until 11/2019)

Being classic car perfectionists, DM Historics decided to create a unique opportunity to offer a stunning Aston Martin example such as this as a blank canvas. Having already resolved all of the metalwork issues, the DB 2/4 now sits in bare metal, waiting for a new owner to cease the chance to make their mark on this 50's sports classic.

Bodywork and Trim
Once finished in factory correct Orient Blue and Beige leather interior with a walnut dash, the Aston Martin has since received an exterior strip down, been taken back to bare metal and treated to a number of metalwork corrections such as bonnet realignment and restoring door gaps, setting the DB 2/4 up for another lifetime of happy and reliable motoring.

Mechanicals
As a result of its restoration between 2007-2013, the Aston Martin offers an impressive amount of power through its original 3-litre saloon engine and precise gear changes through a period correct 4-speed gearbox.
