Selling A 1955 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II Drophead Coupe
The 1955 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II was available in both Fixed-Head Coupe and Drophead Coupe styles. Powering each of these models, a 2,992cc six-cylinder engine capable of 140hp would give owners a thrilling driving experience. The 1955 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II Drophead Coupe and Fixed-Head Coupe was also available with a Special Series engine that produced 165hp, although there are no records that indicate any Drophead Coupe models were outfitted with this available upgrade at the time they left the factory. The 1955 DB2/4 Mk II Drophead Coupe also holds the distinction of being the first production Aston Martin Convertible with coachwork from the manufacturer’s new Newport Pagnell factory. As such, the Mk II examples are quite popular with collectors and enthusiasts today. In total, just 199 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II models were produced between 1955 and 1957. Quite rare, it is estimated that just 15 models were built as Drophead Coupes.

1955 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II Drophead Coupe Seller’s Guide
Besides the obvious benefits of the Drophead Coupe’s Convertible top, the 1955 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II Drophead Coupe is popular for its vestigial tail fins that were thought to be quite stylish during the 1950s – particularly in the American market. Collectors also favor the tiny bubble-type headlights that were also popular during the era, which were borrowed from the contemporary Hillman Minx. When selling a 1955 DB24 Mk II Drophead Coupe, overall value will be dependent on a number of factors, including: rarity, authenticity, originality, additional factory options, interesting history, overall condition, and quality of restoration, if applicable.
