Selling A 1953 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I
The 1953 model-year would mark the release of the Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I for the British automaker. Considered the updated version of the widely praised DB2, the Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I would offer a few significant changes. First, the 1953 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I would offer the Vantage tune of the 2.6L inline-six engine as standard, whereas it was an additional option on the DB2. Second, the 1953 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I would boast a set of occasional seats for rear passengers. This is a bit deceiving, however, as the wheelbase of the car was actually not lengthened to make room for these seats. They were tight and rather cramped for a full-size adult, and a smaller fuel tank was moved near the spare tire to accommodate the addition. The roofline also changed a bit to give more headroom for those who were forced to sit in the rear. Lastly, a top-hinged hatchback that gave access to a much larger luggage area was also added. Previously, luggage would have had to been maneuvered throughout the cabin to reach the rear luggage compartment. These are just a few of the changes that should be identified to any potential buyer who is interested in your 1953 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk I.
