1956 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II Drophead Coupe

Manufactured from 1955 to 1957, the Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II was made available in a beautiful Drophead Coupe body. Under the hood, the same 2.9L six-cylinder engine that was introduced in 1954 would give owners an excellent and powerful driving experience, although a Special Series engine that offered 165hp and a top speed of 120mph was also available as a factory upgrade. Unfortunately, however, there are no historic records that show any Drophead Coupe models outfitted with this particular option. This is not surprising, considering there were fewer than 20 examples of the DB2/4 Mk II Drophead Coupe ever produced out of a total 199 Mk II DB2/4 examples. Today, the 1956 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II Drophead Coupe is one of the most rare and desirable Aston Martin classics. It is also popular because it holds the distinction of being the first production Aston Martin Convertible with coachwork from Aston’s new Newport Pagnell factory. If you’re the owner of a 1956 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II Drophead Coupe and are thinking about selling – whether an unfinished restoration project, rolling chassis or pristine example – the Alex Manos team would be delighted to speak with you.
