Selling A 1960 Aston Martin DB4 Series I

1960 Aston Martin DB4 Series I

The 1960 model-year was a transition year for the Aston Martin DB4. It would mark the end of production for the first variant – the Series I – and, with the development of several changes, would begin production of the Series II models. Unlike the 1960 Aston Martin DB4 Series I, the new Series II examples would adopt rear quarter lights with flat glass rather than curved. Series II examples would also be quite identifiable when the front bonnet was lifted, as it was not hinged from the front rather than the rear. This particular change would continue with the line all the way through to some of Aston Martin’s most modern models today. To assist with engine cooling, the Series II models (January 1960 – April 1961) would also see the introduction of a larger engine-cooling sump and an updated oil pump. In total, approximately 349 examples of the Series II DB4 Aston Martin were produced, while Series I examples would see just 149 models produced. If you’re the owner of a 1960 Aston Martin DB4 Series I or Series II, the Alex Manos team would love the opportunity to learn more about your particular classic.


1960 Aston Martin DB4 Series I Seller’s Guide

As you likely know, the early 1960 Aston Martin DB4 Series I and Series II classics are quite collectable; enthusiasts and collectors love them for a number of reasons. Many believe, for example, that the 1960 Aston Martin DB4 is the perfect example of British engineering and Italian design, thanks to the car’s exceptional aluminum body, which was designed by Touring of Milan, Italy. While these are things that you may understand as a DB4 Series I owner, these are some of the important features that you can point out to potential buyers to help them fully understand how special these classics are. Another important Seller’s Tips, while generic, is to ensure that you have authenticated your classic prior to purchase. This most often means matching the engine and chassis number to historic Aston Martin production records, yet some sellers prefer to obtain a Certificate of Authenticity. Either way, educated buyers will always ask for some type of authentication before moving forward with the purchase. As such, you should also be prepared to allow a third-party inspection so that buyers have a good understanding of the overall condition and originality of your particular model.
