1959 ASTON MARTIN DB4 SERIES 1 SALOON LHD: Matching Numbers and
Oneof Only 73 Left-Hand Drive DB4 Series 1s Built This DB4 Series 1
was among the last of its series built, the 114th of 149 total. It
was ordered new by pioneering intellectual property lawyer Ren
Plasseraudafter whom one of France's most established international
intellectual property law firm, Cabinet Plasseraud, takes its
namethrough French Aston Martin dealer Garage Mirabeau in November
of 1959. Copies of factory records indicate the car was built in
December 1959 and finished in Peony Red over a Beige Connolly
leather interior with optional chromed wire wheels and Radiomobile
radio. Factory correspondence between Aston Martin and Mr.
Plasseraud indicates the car was regularly maintained including
several warranty repairs in October of 1960. The DB4 appears to
have remained in France for the majority of its life and was
subject to a comprehensive restoration by recognized Aston Martin
specialists Garage Lamy of Villejuif, France in 2001. The car
remained with the French owner who had commissioned the restoration
for a further seven years before selling the car to the previous
owner. This rare DB4 Series 1one of only 73 left hand drive
examples to roll out of the factory works at Newport Pagnellhas
been sparingly driven. Given its 14 years of recent storage, some
level of recommissioning is recommended before active use.
