The Aston Martin DB2 superseded the Aston Martin DB1 in 1950 when it was presented to the public at the New York Motor Show. Boasting a six-cylinder Willie Watson-designed engine, the DB2 was the first post-war offering from Aston Martin under the leadership of David Brown. The two-seat classic DB2 achieved notable success in motorsport, especially at Le Mans, and many of the earliest DB2 examples have interesting racing histories. Produced from 1950 to 1953, the 1953 Aston Martin DB2 Fixed-Head Coupe is an excellent example of the quality engineering and beautiful craftsmanship that these classics were known for. The 1953 DB2 Fixed-Head Coupe also boasts all of the changes that would come about during its limited production. This particular classic was available in standard form or as a Vantage edition, which boasted additional horsepower. To learn more about this particular classic or to explore valuable Buyer’s Tips for the classic Aston Martin DB2, do not hesitate to contact The Beverly Hills Car Club today.
The Aston Martin DB2 would see quite limited production, yet Aston Martin was selling them as fast as they could produce them. In total, when the production of the original DB2 was discontinued in April 1953, just 309 Fixed-Head Coupe models and approximately 97 Drophead Coupe models would be built. While it is difficult to determine exactly how many of these classics remain in existence today, you can rest assured knowing that there is a nice selection available. From pristine, showroom quality examples to those in need of complete restoration, The Beverly Hills Car Club can help you find the DB2 you’ve been dreaming of. One of the most important Buyer’s Tips they can share with you today is to ensure you’ve established your budget, including any potential restoration costs. Due to its aluminum body, a fully body restoration can be quite expensive. Furthermore, certain parts can be difficult to find and are, therefore, costly. For this and other reasons, it is important to purchase the best condition example you can find.
