The 1953 Aston Martin DB2 Fixed-Head Coupe and Drophead Coupe models would be the last in a three-year production span prior to the release of the DB2/4. While production of the original DB2 would only last three short years, the history of the classic carries back much further. David Brown, who had made his fortune in transmissions and farm tractors, would acquire both the Aston Martin and Lagonda companies prior to 1949. With this purchase, he would gain the engine technologies used by Lagonda and the chassis technology of Aston Martin. Together, these technologies would be used to launch the DB2 racing prototypes, which would be entered in the 1949 24 Hours of Le Mans race. After notable successes in motorsport, Aston Martin would present a production version of the DB2 at the 1950 New York Auto Show. The two-seat classic would cause quite a stir; Aston could not hand make the DB2 fast enough. In just three short years, more than 411 examples would be produced, of which both Fixed-Head Coupe and Drophead Coupe examples were available. Buyers also had the option of a standard tune engine or a performance-based Vantage tune that increased horsepower. If you’re thinking about selling a 1953 Aston Martin DB2 Fixed-Head Coupe, you can rest assured knowing that there is certainly demand for and interest in these particular models.
