From September 1961, several small but noticeable changes were made to the Aston Martin DB4, which would be the impetus for the Series IV models. Because most of the changes were visual, it makes this particular DB4 variant quite easy to identify when compared to its predecessors. The 1961 Aston Martin DB4 Series IV would no longer offer the egg box style grille that the early models had used and would instead feature a barred type with seven vertical bars. The prominent air scoop on the front of the bonnet was also significantly lowered on the Series IV DB4 and would no longer feature a grille. Both of these changes would continue through DB5 production to the last models of the DB6. Lastly, a much-needed oil cooler would become standard, which can be found by looking for an intake under the front bumper. Buyers of the 1961 Aston Martin DB4 Series IV could choose between the standard tune engine with twin SU carburetors, the Special Series (SS) engine that was used in the DB4 Vantage, and the GT engine with triple Weber carburetors. Because very few of the GT engines were ordered on the Series IV models, collectors and enthusiasts are typically quite excited to find this pairing in the market today.
