A fabulous car which has recently received over £100,000 worth of mechanical improvements and enhancements with historic road rallies and trails in mind. Most of the works completed by Aston Engineering and Four Ashes Garage.

Previously displayed on Aston Martin Owners Club Stand at NEC Classic Car Show 2013.

Competed in Three Castles Welsh Trials in 2014, 2015 and 2016 and  Competed in The Scottish Malts Historic Trial 2016 in which another class win was achieved.

The car has 4 large files documenting its 66 years of history, 7 owners from new.

The 4th owner kept the car stored and unused from 1966 to 1985.


The 5th owner then undertook a mammoth 11 year restoration with works completed in 1996.

The 7th owner purchased the car from Byron International in 2012 and he commissioned marque experts to hugely improve and enhance the mechanical elements of the car specifically for road rallies and trials, he then campaigned this well know car on the various events.

This is a fabulous rare, early DB2 two- seat Vantage car, until recently has been professionally prepared and ready for immediate use as a road car as well as for road based Historic events.

Well known by the marque experts, investment aside, this important piece of British Historic motoring history is now available for sale and would make a very worthwhile addition to any collection.


Its new owner would also have the pleasure of being able to drive such a beautiful wonderful car.
