Very Rare Lost Aston Martin Found

A very rare fifties Aston has been found after 30 years of hiding.

The 1957 Aston Martin DB2/4 Drophead Coupé was found on a trailer underneath a tarpaulin with its original engine, log book and manual stowed away inside.

Only 84 Drophead Coupés were ever built between 1957 and 1959.

This particular car was owned by the then owner of Aston, David Brown (of which many of the cars produced by Aston Martin since have been named after, hence the ‘DB’ name).

The car was then passed on to David’s wife, before being sold to a Yorkshire mill owner, and finally onto a London based architect who sold it back to the garage from which it was originally bought.

It will be auctioned at Barons’ British Heritage Sale at Sandown Park, on September 7, and is expected to fetch something in the region of £100,000.

Managing Director of Barons, Laurence Sayers-Gillan, said that “‘Lost’ cars of such importance come along very rarely and, with the direct association with such a pivotal figure in Aston Martin’s history, it should be a hugely rewarding project.”
