News has recently arrived up on the top floor of MotorMartin Towers that leading London classic car experts Hexagon Classics is proud to offer one of the rarest Aston Martin’s available today – a pre-production 1959 DB4. Crikey.
Clearly, the Aston Martin DB4 has long been revered by the marques enthusiasts as the purists’ choice, thanks to its nimble handling and tasteful appearance. Hexagon have Explained to MotorMartin that the unique Blu Scozia now offered, was the third Right Hand Drive DB4 to come from Newport Pagnell and was prepared and upgraded by Aston Martin aficionado Richard Williams, as his own car, for 37 years.
Aston Martin registered this car as their London demonstration model before production continued for the model until 1963. The car boasts a retrimmed leather interior with the car converted to run on a Vantage triple Weber set-up. It was upgraded with a 5-speed gearbox and modifications have been made to the front and rear wheel arches to accommodate its larger offset wire wheels.
Hexagon’s Aston Martin DB4, they say, has undergone an extensive restoration, a necessity after successfully mastering legendary hill climb events throughout its life. The recommissioning process was carried out by the best specialists and the engine was rebuilt to a 4.2 litre specification, whilst the entire interior and exterior of the car has been upgrading to a near concours condition, at a cost of £222,000. It is now arguably one of the finest DB4’s in the world.
It’s been confirmed to MotorMartin that this highly desirable DB4 comes with its original registration number of WLC 433, ensuring provenance is retained and is now available for inspection at Hexagon today.
Paul Michaels, chairman of Hexagon Classics, confirmed to MotorMartin recently: “This is an unmissable opportunity for someone to own a truly unique classic car. The DB4 is unmistakably iconic, made more so thanks to this particular pre-production model claiming the legendary Richard Williams amongst it previous owners. It has been lovingly restored to immaculate condition and it ready for inspection from our North London showroom now.”
