Description

This DB4 is well known to Bonhams, having previously been sold under our Brooks banner at Ascot Racecourse on 2nd August 1996 (Lot 671) and again at Olympia on 4th December 1997 (Lot 838). 'DB4/541/R' comes with three lever-arch files of history, as comprehensive and beautifully laid out as any we have seen, close inspection of which is highly recommended. The car is currently taxed until April 2013 , MoT'd and comes with Swansea V5.
When sold at Ascot in 1996, the DB4 had been in the then owner's hands for 33 years, and all history dating back to the mid-1960s, including purchase invoice and MoTs, is offered with it today. Described as very original, the Aston had been maintained and on show at the Midland Motor Museum since 1988, and in June 1991 was treated to a bare-metal re-spray (in original Snow Shadow Grey) costing in excess of £9,000. Its condition throughout was described as good, while generally the car reflected careful ownership and use over an extended period. Both
