Aston Martin DB4 Series I
Offered complete with a copy of its original build sheet, this DB4 from 1960, chassis DB4/245/L, is an original left-hand drive example that was sold new in the USA via West Coast distributor Charles Hornburg to Mr. Paul S. Pollack of Los Angeles, California. A rare and very desirable early ‘Series I’ car, it is highly collectible as one of about 150 originally built. This DB4 has particularly clean styling with its frameless doors, rear-hinged bonnet and the absence of the later bumper over-riders. In fact, it retains its matching-numbers engine, numbered 370/243.
Our DB4T was delivered new in France to the director of Les Tramways de Nice, then owned by the President of the Club Aston Martin, another collector, and was acquired by its current owner eight years ago. It is grey with a fine, red leather interior (David Brown were also renowned for the quality of their leather) and left-hand drive, and has always been very well cared for (Suntrop invoice € 17500 in 2003); it was parked under cover in the garage of the owner’s château not far from Avignon.
