This Aston Martin DB2 / 4 MkII Tickford is in a wonderful balance in terms of appearance and technology. The car was a few years ago extensively restored and the goal was to leave the soul in the car and make everything perfect and to original standards. We can say that they successfully completed this job.
The technique looks and works like you’d expect: simply good. The interior shows all the original details and is in a beautiful condition. The paintwork shows no damage or scratches. The rims are newly painted black and equipped with new tires which Aston looks even tougher. The car is documented with photographs and several books. Satink Restorations from Hengelo the Netherlands, did some detailing and fine tuning and the car is ready now to hand over to the next owner to enjoy it for many years.
The car comes from an impressive classic car collection that is being downsized due to the owner’s too busy work. This makes an excellent opportunity to become the owner of this perfect Aston Martin.

Lionel Martin brings in 1913 a car prepared by himself, at the start of the Aston Clinton Hillclimb. He wins, and a new name was born for the car brand he created together with his partner Robert Bamford: Aston-Martin.
With pure racing engines under sporty bodywork, the Aston Martins made fame in races in England and abroad. The name Aston Martin is definitively linked to sporting top class automobiles.
After David Brown at the end of the fortys took over Aston Martin and Lagonda, appears the famous DB models from DB1 till DBS. Under the supervision of new owner Ford, Aston Martin brought successful dream cars on the market, such as the Virage, DB7 and Vanquish.
Characteristic of Aston Martin is that it has built only cars which are searched by connoisseurs all over the world. Aston Martin is the brand for connoisseurs. Then and now.
The final iteration of the DB2 came in 1957 after 7 years of production, with many improvements over the original it was labeled the DB MKIII, the best road car Aston Martin had produced so far! This car was a big step forward from the DB2 with major enhancements to performance and styling. The addition of front disc brakes improved the cars stopping power and the new version of the engine, renamed as the DBA series, now produced 162bhp in its standard form compared to the 105bhp of the original. It was also offered in 180bhp and 214bhp versions for those who wanted something more exotic! The biggest difference came in the styling with a re-designed front end to reflect the DB3S racing car, a beautiful design which was echoed inside with the new instrument binnacle following the shape of the nose intake. The DB MKIII was produced from March 1957 until July 1959 with only some 400 saloon versions being made, making this a rare car indeed!
