1963 Aston Martin DB4 Vantage convertible
Only 70 DB4 convertibles were built and just five right-hand drive Series V convertibles were built to Vantage spec. Constant mechanical and cosmetic attention (work since 2009 costing around £60,000) meant it was in simply outstanding order inside and out. The dark metallic blue paint was lovely, as was the panelwork and interior, while under the bonnet it was equally good. It deserved to do well, and it did.
