Selling an Aston Martin DB2

Manufactured from May 1950 to April 1953, the Aston Martin DB2 was quite an improvement over the model it replaced. Offering a straight-six engine rather than a straight-four, the Aston Martin DB2 was powered by a 2.6L engine that gave it great success on the racing circuit. Prior to production, the first prototype would arrive at the 24 Hours of Le Mans race of 1949. Based on Claude Hill’s tube-frame chassis that was designed for the DB1, the DB2 was seen in Coupe form, as designed by Frank Feeley. The production version of the Aston Martin DB2 would appear at the 1950 New York Motor Show; orders would rapidly come in over the weekend. Although the Aston Martin DB2 is quite rare in today’s market, the company was selling them as fast as they could produce them. In total, only 411 examples would be manufactured during the three years. If you’re thinking about selling your Aston Martin DB2, there is certainly additional value to be found if your model has any type of racing history that you can demonstrate with historic records. Collectors also enjoy the Drophead Coupe models that became available in 1950, of which little more than 100 were built.
