The 1955 model-year would be a transition year for Aston Martin, as the Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I was seeing the end of production and the Mk II was being introduced. The 1955 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I, however, represents the finest offering of the original Mk I models, as it is outfitted with the powerful 2.9L engine that had been introduced in the previous year. Available as a Fixed-Head Coupe or Drophead Coupe, it is estimated that approximately 565 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I models were manufactured in total between 1953 and 1955. While the Drophead Coupe would remain relatively unchanged from the DB2 it replaced, the Fixed-Head Coupe models were a bit different. Of course both offered the new occasional seating in the rear, yet the Fixed-Head’s roofline bulged out to provide a bit more headroom for those who were crammed into the backseat. The Fixed-Head Coupe also received a one-piece windshield to replace the previously divided glass. If you’re thinking about buying a 1955 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I whether in Fixed-Head Coupe or Drophead Coupe form The Beverly Hills Car Club would be delighted to assist you in finding the model that best suits your needs.
