Offered from 1953 to 1955, the Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I would be the much-anticipated replacement for the Aston Martin DB2. While the Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I would be quite similar to its predecessor, its name gives away one important change the addition of two rear occasional seats. Although the wheelbase was not lengthened, Aston Martin did some slight rearranging to accommodate these new seats, including moving the fuel tank above the spare tire. On the 1954 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I Fixed-Head Coupe (and other model-year FHC’s), the rear profile would now have a slight bulge to give passengers additional headroom. Another way to distinguish an early DB2 from a 1954 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I Fixed-Head Coupe is the one-piece windshield on the DB2/4 Mk1 FHC that replaced the split windshield of previous models. Limited in production during their era, the Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I Fixed-Head Coupe is quite rare today. In total, it is estimated that 565 examples of the Mk I were made, of which all but approximately 100 were Fixed-Head Coupe body styles. Nevertheless, there is still a nice selection of available models for those collectors and Aston Martin enthusiasts looking to add an Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I Fixed-Head Coupe to their collection.
