Selling A 1953 Aston Martin DB2
First launched in Fixed-Head Coupe form at the New York Auto Show of 1950, the classic Aston Martin DB2 is perhaps one of the most iconic classics to come from the company during this era. In fact, it was the first real post-war production car for Aston Martin and the first official “David Brown car” after Brown’s acquisition of Aston Martin and Lagonda. Available from 1950 to 1953, little more than 400 examples were hand built; this classic is quite rare in today’s market. The Aston Martin DB2 was also well known for its racing successes. In fact, the second, third and fourth DB2 models ever produced would be used to compete in the 1950 Le Mans. A straight-six twin-cam engine derived from Lagonda would power the DB2, while Frank Feeley would design the beautifully proportioned and elegant body. If you’re the owner of a 1953 Aston Martin DB2 or have recently inherited a classic DB2 and are thinking about selling, you’ve come to the right place. The Alex Manos team of classic car professionals would be delighted to speak with you about your classic DB2.
