This DB4 Series IV Coupe was ordered new in California Sage Green with Fawn leather through Aston Martin dealer, Hornburg Motors. It was delivered to its first registered owner, Mr. D. Wolfe, Tucson, Arizona. Having retained the DB4 for over 30 years, ownership history and records show Mr. Wolfe as the DB4's caretaker through the late 1980's. Then owned by well-known AMOC member and Aston collector, Mr. C. Salyer, the DB4 was cosmetically and mechanically restored by West Coast specialists. At this time, the DB4's color combination was Aston Racing Green with Black leather interior, its cam covers were painted Red, it had lost its front and rear bumpers and its fenders flares had been slightly widened to fit and house wider 289 Cobra wire wheels with larger tires. It was quite the DB4 hot rod.
Subsequent ownership history shows, Mr. B. Buerlin, Richmond, Virginia having owned this DB4, showing it at various Aston Martin Owners Club events throughout the 1990's.
Purchased by its most recent owner in the early 2002, this DB4 was delivered to Autosport Designs for restoration. The restoration was photo documented, the DB4 stripped to metal, the fender flares returned to stock configuration and no stone left unturned to return this DB4 to its former glory. During the restoration, it was decided to paint the DB4, rare and seldom seen Almond Green Metallic with Black leather interior and Black Wilton Wool carpets. The DB4 received various updates and upgrades including: Harvey Bailey handling kit, Telescopic rear shock absorbers conversion, replacing the original, antiquated lever arm shocks, Electronic ignition, a period factory radio box and a period Becker AM/FM radio.
Having been in its most recent ownership for the past 30 year, this DB4 has accumulated approximately 3,000 miles since restoration. It has been serviced regardless of use while in its previous collection-collector ownership and thus ready and able for immediately use and touring pleasure. The Aston Martin DB4 is an ideal vintage motorcar and as comfortable around town as it is on lengthy journeys. In our opinion, one of the best candidates and eligible for some of the world's finest rallies.
Complete with ownership, service histories, well-known provenance and in superbly restored condition, this DB4 must be considered one of the finest on today's market.
