The Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II, introduced in 1955, saw several visual changes to the overall look of the DB2/4 Mk I it replaced. Small tail fins and bubble-type taillights were now visible on the rear, while a significant amount of chrome trim was also added. The bonnet horizontal split line was also changed from doorsill height to a horizontal line carried backwards from the top of the front wheel arch. Initially the engine would also be the same as that used in the Mk I, yet a Special Series engine would later be offered that would boast 165hp and a top speed in excess of 120mph. This level of performance was almost on par with the much heavier and less nimble Jaguar XK140, yet the Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II would retain the same feline sophistication of the earlier DB-series Aston Martin models. In total, only 199 examples of the Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II would be made before the end of production in 1957. The 1956 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II is an excellent example of these early Mk II models, and would make a fantastic addition to any classic car collector or Aston Martin enthusiast’s garage.
If you’re thinking about buying a 1956 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II, you have several body style options, including a Fixed-Head Coupe and Drophead Coupe. Of course, with less than 200 examples made, finding an Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II with the exact specifications you desire can be quite difficult. Nevertheless, there is a nice selection of available models on the classic car market, and The Beverly Hills Car Club can help you secure the one that best suits your needs and desires. One of the most important Buyer’s Tips, however, is to ensure that you’ve done your research and know a bit about the classic you’re searching for.
