Vehicle Description

1956 Aston Martin DB2/4 MkII LHD This delightful Aston Martin is one of only 16 cars built in both left and right hand drive configurations with a Tickford Drophead Coupe body. Completed in December 1956 it was originally finished in Imperial Crimson with Black Connolly leather upholstery and a Black Everflex top and fitted with 3.77:1 rear axle ratio, instruments in kilometres and had the optional VB6L/1 competition cylinder head, which featured high-lift camshafts and larger valves. Being a LHD car it was shipped to the French distributor Majestic Automobiles and then delivered to its first owner, Maison L. Kitmacher of Paris, in March 1957. In the late 1980s, it was exported to the United States where it was carefully maintained for the next three decades before recently returning to the UK. The car is currently in excellent mechanical condition and finished in Black livery with Black upholstery and Tan carpeting and exhibits a charming patina. With its original matching-numbers engine, leather-bound owner's handbook, service manual, tool kit, and a copy of the factory build record this delightful DB2/4 provides a fantastic opportunity to acquire one of the rarest Aston Martins with an excellent provenance and is Mille Miglia eligible.
