Now available at Peter Vardy Heritage is our stunning DB2/4 and, according to its accompanying copy Aston Martin Ltd Build Sheet and Service Records, this particular MKI 2.6 litre example - chassis number LML/656 - was supplied new by Northampton Motor Services. Specified with optional heavy duty shock absorbers and RJ needles, this 2+2-seater underwent further preparations for Continental Touring at the Feltham Works during June 1954. Pleasingly retaining its original Instruction Book which shows that new tyres were fitted in April 1958 (29,000 miles), September 1961 (45,000 miles) and June 1965 (58,000 miles). Dry stored for forty-two years (1969 - 2011), this Aston Martin still shows just two former keepers on its V5C Registration Document. Believed to have covered just 65,000 miles from new, the DB2/4 has not long emerged from an extensive, nut and bolt restoration that saw it stripped to a bare chassis. Having sought advice from Aston Services Dorset, Nicholas Mee and Four Ashes and Chicane Classics, the vendor had Ian Pitney and former Mulliner Park Ward panel beater Lance McCormack, refurbish the chassis and bodywork. The factory-fitted engine was overhauled by Dave Swithen using parts sourced from Stamper Aston Martin of Cumbria with Tarrozzeria carrying out the repainting, while ex-Wood & Pickett craftsman Patrick Hanson re-trimmed the interior.
