ASTON MARTIN DB2/4 MKII Coupe 1956

This cars History
A copy of the original build record for the car shows that Aston martin Agents, Tice & Sons Ltd, sold AM300/1109 to a Miss H Stokes of Severn Stoke near Worcester in June 1956.
Clearly designed to accommodate a tall driver, the build sheet notes that the driver was lowered by 1 inch. Strangely enough, during the restoration of the car 40 years later, the refurbished seats were set as far back to accommodate the height of the contemporary purchaser!
Sadly there is little history recorded on the car in the intervening years until Aston Martin Specialist, Runnymede Motor company acquired the car in 1995 as a restoration project.
It was a project adopted by Mr. Stephen Ross of Bath and, under his direction, a full mechanical and body/chassis restoration was undertaken by Runnymede with marque specialist input from Feltham experts Four Ashes and other known specialist companies.
The job was clearly well done as the Aston Martin Owners Club records show success in the 1999 Goodwood Sprint Cup in Class 2B.
Runnymede Motor Company had further involvement in 2002 when they sold the car on behalf of Mr. Ross to a company based in Southampton.
Latterly the car found its way to its current owner in Hong Kong who has continued the maintenance of the car with the help of genuine parts supply provided by Aston Service in Dorset.
Summary
This car has been very well looked after and has some very nice touches and niceties to enhance the cars ownership. A very well documented history files which fills four full folders. This shows the true care, which has been taken over the car by the loving owners who have really enjoyed the ownership.
Recent market shifts have seen the Feltham Aston Martin cars make substantial gains in value that reflect their importance in the development of the marque.
This car is typical of the investment being made by owners in the service and maintenance of their asset and is rewarded by their burgeoning value.
The Aston Martin DB2/4 MK II is an ideal collectors car with easy access to the engine bay is a very easy car to maintain.
A car which is seen in many hill climbs, track days, and world rallies, as they have good ground clearance, good overall power, easy to drive, a great investment.
