This 1957 Aston Martin DB2/4 MkII sold at an auction a few weeks ago in Monterey California, but we wanted to revisit it because of its story and photos. Reader Matt S brought it to our attention and filled us in on a few details.
This British beauty was just discovered in a garage in Malibu California. It had been sitting there since the ’70s when the owner parked it. The owner was a woman who had seen a similar car in the 60′s and feel in love. She located this car and used it as a her daily driver until the mid 70s .
Her son remembers the sound of that exhaust when his mother was headed down the road to pick him up from school. We doubt many kids would mind having their parents pick them up from school if they showed up in a DB2/4…
Anyways, this car looks rough but is claimed to be very solid and complete. The woman that owned it had always wanted to restore the car but her eyesight was failing her so she decided to sell it instead.
It was sold through Bonhams and went for $87,750. Big money, but remember that this is an Aston Martin. No news has surfaced on what will become of the car, but we sort of hope that they just clean it up and drive it because we think it looks great just as it is. Anyone here agree? Or should it be restored?
