Selling A 1950 Aston Martin DB2
The Aston Martin DB2 has a long and interesting history. Industrialist David Brown, who had made his fortune in transmissions and farm tractors, would acquire both Aston Martin and Lagonda motor companies in 1947. With these acquisitions came a 2.6L twin-cam engine from Lagonda and an Aston Martin DB1 chassis. After making the necessary changes to the DB1 chassis to accept the Lagonda engine, the Aston Martin DB2 was born. Although prototypes would be designed and launched at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race in 1949, the public would not get their first official taste of the DB2 until the release of the 1950 Aston Martin DB2 at the New York Motor Show. Outfitted with proper bumpers and more complete equipment, the DB2 made quite a stir at the show. In fact, history tells us that Aston Martin could not make the cars fast enough! Little more than 400 of these hand-built classics would be manufactured during their three years of production – not due to lack of demand! If you’re thinking about selling your 1950 Aston Martin DB2, you can rest assured knowing there will be interest from classic car collectors of all types.

Because of their rarity, the first thing that any potential buyer will want to do is authenticate your particular 1950 Aston Martin DB2 as an original. This can be achieved in a number of ways; however, comparing the engine and chassis numbers with historic records is perhaps the most preferred way. Additionally, if there is any motorsports history associated with your particular DB2, it will be best to have this information handy. This type of provenance can certainly increase the value of your classic when compared to a similarly equipped example without a racing history.
