This Series IV Aston Martin DB4 is the best barn find of 2021, and it's only February
What a find!
If you're looking for a cheeky little lockdown car project, then look no further than this Series IV Aston Martin DB4 which has been found in a barn near New York.
This exact car has been owned by the same person for over 40 years and has been locked up in a barn for the last 30. It looks a bit rough around the edges, but is completely unmolested and has matching numbers.
This 1962 Aston Martin DB4 is an incredibly exciting and rare find. It is finished in a (now faded) blue colour along with a red leather interior. It has been sitting in storage for the last 30 years patiently awaiting restoration.
The previous owner of this car was gifted it by his boss after fixing it up for him. The man had just returned fro Vietnam and spent a few weeks working on the car before being gifted it. He never got around to making it run so he parked it in a barn where it sat until recently when it finally saw the light of day after over 30 years in storage.
When it was new, the DB4 was the world's first production car to achieve 0-100-0 mph in under 30 seconds. The DB4 also has a pretty extensive racing pedigree which goes way back to the track-only DB4 GT, which has now been reborn by Aston Martin as a Continuation car along with the DB4 Zagato.
This exact DB4 is currently up for sale at Gullwing MotorCars for $325,000 which may seem a lot for a car which doesn't appear to work, but once finished could be worth millions.
