The Aston Martin DB2 was the first successful post-war sports car for the Aston Martin brand, which had been recently acquired by David Brown. Although the DB1 wore the “David Brown” name – hence the “DB” – the DB2 is often considered the “first” David Brown Aston Martin. It would make its first appearance at the 1949 24 Hours of Le Mans race and would quickly transition into Astons premier production sports car. The 1951 Aston Martin DB2 Fixed-Head Coupe would boast a 2.6L six-cylinder engine paired with a four-speed transmission with a beautifully designed aluminum coupe body. The classic would be praised for marrying the performance and excitement of a Le Mans car with the practicality and comfort of a sports touring vehicle. When this praise was combined with notable racing successes, the Aston Martin DB2 Fixed-Head Coupe would see much interest from the public. In fact, Aston Martin was hand building these classics as fast as they could; it was an exciting time for the company. In total, approximately 411 DB2 models would be produced. It is estimated that approximately 309 were Coupe models. If you’re the owner of a 1951 Aston Martin DB2 Fixed-Head Coupe or Drophead Coupe and are interested in selling your classic, you’ve come to the right place.


1951 Aston Martin DB2 Fixed-Head Coupe Seller’s Guide

One of the interesting characteristics of the 1951 Aston Martin DB2 Fixed-Head Coupe that you can share with potential buyers is the chassis; an early space-frame unit that supported a modern independent front coil-sprung suspension. Quite advanced for the time, even Jaguar and Ferrari models of the era would make do with comparatively antiquated suspension technologies for more than two decades following Aston’s 1949 introduction of the system. Educating your potential buyers on the history and quality of the classic DB2 Fixed-Head Coupe is just one of the Seller’s Tips that the Alex Manos team recommends. Another important Seller’s Tip for the DB2 is to ensure that you authenticate the model as original, as buyers will certainly want to ensure the car is authentic before purchase. This can be accomplished in a number of ways; however, the best way is by comparing engine and chassis numbers to historic records. If you have any documentation regarding ownership or racing history, this can also help increase value and confidence of buyers.
