The 1961 model-year would mark not only the end of Series II production, but also the start of production for Series III models and later Series IV examples. The 1961 Aston Martin DB4 Series II is known for offering many significant improvements over the original Series I DB4, as early customers had – in effect – thoroughly tested the DB4 during the first few years. Most of the changes appeared under the hood, such as the addition of an oil cooler and increase in sump size to achieve more efficient engine cooling. Visually, the Series II would also offer rear quarter lights made with flat glass rather than curved. One of the changes that would stick around for many years, however, would be a change in the way the front bonnet was hinged. The original Aston Martin DB4 Series I models would be rear-hinged, while from Series II onward they were hinged in the front. A front-hinged bonnet is still used in today’s Aston Martins. In total, approximately 349 of the Aston Martin DB4 Series II models were produced prior to the introduction of Series III in April 1961. As such, these early Aston Martin DB4 models are highly coveted by both Aston Martin enthusiasts and collectors alike.
