DB2/4 Mark II saloon

(1955 - 1957)

Whilst outwardly similar to the previous model DB2/4, with the Mark II came many detail changes. The car was first shown at the London Motor Show in 1955 and in production run for only 2 short years, a total of 199 cars were built, a majority were saloons as shown here. Other body styles were the desirable fixed head coupe and the wind-in-the-hair drophead coupes. Initially, the engine was the same as fitted to the later examples of the  DB2/4 model (VB6J), but as an optional extra, the Special Series engine (VB6J/...../L or L1) could be fitted. The Special Series engine had 165 bhp on tap which was down to higher compression, the fitting of larger valves and high lift camshafts.

Externally, the roof line was raised and a chrome strip extends from the top of the windscreen wrapping around to above the side windows. An easy way to differentiate the Mark II from the previous DB2/4 is that she side panels of the bonnet remains fixed to the chassis when the bonnet is raised. This was done in the interests of reducing the weight of the opening bonnet and is clearly visible by a chrome strips separating the two pieces of the body. From the rear, a chrome strip extends around the rear of the body below the rear door. With all these chrome strips, it is hardly surprising that a fair few DB2/4 Mark II’s also had fashionable two tone paint finishes.

More noticeable are the vestigial tail fins which were thought as stylish in the 50′s. The tiny bubble type taillights were ‘borrowed’ from the contemporary Hillman Minx.

Since the David Brown Corporation had bought the Tickford Coachbuilding Works in Newport Pagnell during 1954, the production of the bodies of the 2/4 Mark II was moved to the historic factory and away from Mulliners in Birmingham who were responsible for the coachwork of the DB2/4.  Within a few short years, AML would move completely from Feltham and make it’s new home in the Buckinghamshire town.

Aston Martin DB 2/4 MkII Ghia Supersonic (1956)

Britská stíhačka z Turína

Italská Ghia nestavěla své extravagantní „supersonické“ karoserie pouze na podvozcích Fiatů 8V. Dočkal se jí i jediný Aston Martin.

 Unikátní automobil si objednal jeden člen rodiny Vanderbildtů přímo u britského Aston Martinu, který tehdy vlastnil průmyslník David Brown. Tovární „šaty“ však americkému milionáři jaksi nestačily. Speciální karoserie inspirovanou tehdejší...
