Classic Aston Martin DB4 “Farm Find” To Be Auctioned

Aston MartinWorldwide Auctioneers Scottsdale auction takes place on the 18th January 2017 with one of the cars offered for sale being a 1961 Aston Martin DB4. However, this particular vehicle has the added appeal of being a “farm find”.

This classic sports car, despite being in need of restoration, has an estimated sale price of between $375,000 to $475,000. It has been owned by the same person for the last 45 years.

It has a 3,670cc six-cylinder engine that, in its heyday, was capable of producing 240 bhp. It was able to get from 0 to 100mph in less than 30 seconds reaching a top speed of 140mph. Therefore, it was an extremely powerful car.

Between 1958 and 1963 only 1,113 of these vehicles were built here in the UK. This particular classic sports car was built with a specification for the USA market in 1960 and transported to the USA in November of that year. The original owner of the vehicle took possession of it in April 1962.Aston Martin

The car spent decades in the outdoors at the current owner’s property until being found not too long ago. Its steering wheel is wood-rimmed and has wire spoke wheels. Its upholstery is black and its bodywork has been repainted green.

This classic vehicle sounds like it could appeal to a number of interested purchasers especially in view of its history. It will be interesting to see if it achieves a price within the estimated range or, indeed, if it sells for a higher figure.
