Beginning in September 1962, the Aston Martin DB4 line would receive another round of changes that today is known as the Aston Martin DB4 Series V. It would be the final variant of the DB4 before being replaced by the popular DB5. The most significant change to the 1962 and 1963 Aston Martin DB4 would be the lengthening of the body to allow for more space and legroom for rear seat passengers. The roof was also raised a bit too, to allow for more headroom. These changes can best be seen in the space between the back of the rear wheel arch and the start of the rear bumper. Interestingly, in order to keep the height of the car the same as previous DB4 models, the diameter of the wheels was reduced to 15 inches. The rear light clusters were also slightly changed from the DB Series IV, featuring indicator, braking lamp and reversing lamp. The rear reflector was also move to the bumper. In total, just 50 Aston Martin DB4 Series V Saloons were built during ten months of production. Aston Martin also offered an exclusive DB4 Convertible at this time. Only 70 of the Convertible style were produced 30 in Series IV and 40 in Series V. One of the special features of the Convertible is the body color painted dashboard rather than the simply black vinyl that was used in the Saloon. Quite rare today, the Convertible can often fetch prices double that of the standard Saloon.
