DB4 in the woods a R7 mln ‘time capsule’
This ‘Series 2’ 1961 Aston Martin DB4 was found recently next to a trailer home in the Massachusetts woods in the U.S. Numbered DB4/510/L, it is an original, U.S.-specification DB4 that was manufactured in 1960. This DB4 is a veritable time capsule, with a remarkably preserved wood-rimmed steering wheel and personal effects found inside, retaining the wire-spoke wheels, and even the old tyres, which held air when re-inflated after the car was found and its condition was assessed professionally. As offered, this 1961 DB4 carries fascinating history and it marks a wonderful find that is certain to electrify the Aston Martin faithful everywhere. Worldwide Auctioneers expects to get over R7 million ($500 000) for it when the restored car goes under the global hammer at the inaugural Scottsdale sale on January 18.
