The first 49 DB2s produced featured a unique design with a distinctive three-piece grille and ‘Washboard’ wing vents. Of these first cars, only 10 drop head coupes were produced, (all of which were right hand drive) making this an exceptionally rare motorcar.

1951, the year of the Festival of Britain, Winston Churchill being re-elected to Prime Minister and LML/50/33, a DB2 DHC (Drop Head Coupe), was purchased by Swedish resident Mr Roger Lundberg. Remarkably this delightful and rare car has remained in Sweden for 67 years, the last owner having taken delivery in 1984. Early maintenance records show works carried out by Aston Martin in Feltham, with the original bonnet being replaced due to a rendezvous with a tram in Gothenburg, with a later one-piece bonnet and grille.

Currently finished in Imperial Crimson with aniline Fawn hides and matching hood, Mr Lundberg enjoyed trips to Southern Europe and Le Mans, where he was introduced to Prince Bertil of Sweden, coincidently an owner a DB2 DHC.
In gently aged and cared for condition this delightful car has been maintained since 1984 by the last owner, an engineer by profession, who set about a restoration over the next five years. In delightful condition, the car runs superbly and is a credit to the last owner’s skill and dedication. A record of the cars build, early service history and subsequent ownership history is included with this rare and interesting car, which could justifiably and quantifiably be re-configured to its original ‘Washboard’ grilles design.

A welcome entrant at any motoring event we are delighted to offer rare example of one of the first production cars from the David Brown era of Aston Martins.
