Formerly of the Bob Pond Collection. One of only 70 DB4 Convertibles built. Originally owned by brewing heiress Lady Henrietta Guinness. Fascinating history. During the drive back to London, the DB4 was involved in an accident, with Michael Beeby at the wheel. Amidst ensuing press, the car returned to Dorset with a note in the service records stating that it had been written off by the insurance company; however, further notes indicate that the factory then repaired the accident damage, which included overhauling the engine and installing a new windshield.
Single family ownership from new. Left-hand drive chassis number ‘DB4C/1099/L’ is one of the very few DB4 convertibles manufactured with the ‘SS’ Vantage engine. Accompanying copy build sheets record that the car was delivered equipped with the Special Series engine, overdrive, intermediate silencers, oil cooler, chrome wheels, Bray block heater, and a detachable hardtop in black.
The 1962 DB4 Convertible offered here, chassis DB4C/1065/R, is a handsome late-production example which incorporates the improvements of Series I through Series IV. Show more.
