Unveiled in the UK at the 1958 London Motor Show (although many resources also quote the 1958 Paris Motor Show), the Aston Martin DB4 was a completely new car in the DB line. Quite an achievement for the highly regarded but small British manufacturer, the Aston Martin DB4 boasted a completely new platform chassis, disc brakes all around, and a brand new 3.7L six-cylinder engine paired with an exceptional fastback body styled by Touring of Milan. Today, the 1959 Aston Martin DB4 (and other model-years) is highly regarded as the perfect expression of British engineering and Italian styling. The 1959 Aston Martin DB4 is part of the DB4 Series I (1958 -1960), although not an official Aston Martin designation. They are characterized by their simple bumpers without over-riders and by the rear-hinged, front opening bonnet. Within this series, the first 50 examples are often the most desirable, and can be noticed by the lack of window frames on the side windows.
From October 1958 to January 1960, approximately 149 of the Series I DB4 models were produced. It is estimated that around 100 continue to exist today. Despite early problems with overheating, the 1959 Aston Martin DB4 is highly regarded as an excellent collector’s item. If you’re thinking about purchasing a classic DB4, The Beverly Hills Car Club would be delighted to assist you in finding the perfect model for your collection. Perhaps one of the most important Buyer’s Tips they can offer is to ensure that you have done your research regarding restoration and parts availability prior to purchasing a DB4 for restoration. While restoration of these classic cars can be time consuming and rather costly, the process is highly rewarding for many who take it on. You should always, however, try to find the best condition example you can within your budget. This can save you thousands of dollars and countless restoration hours. As with all classic cars, be sure to have any DB4 inspected by a qualified Aston Martin professional and ensure that engine and chassis numbers match production records if originality and authenticity are important to you as they should be.
