When the Aston Martin DB4 went on the market in 1958 it marked a turning point in Aston Martin’s design. Company trademarks such as the modified Atom frames and the W.O. Bentley designed engine were now things of the past as the new car was the first Aston Martin to wear the ‘Superleggera’ bodywork of Carrozzeria Touring. The unique method of construction used aluminum-magnesium panels over steel tubing, giving the DB4 a rigid, yet undeniably light body. The new engine – a 3.7 litre straight-six with twin overhead camshafts was the brainchild of Polish engineer Tadek Marek, who prior to coming to Aston Martin, enjoyed success with General Motors and FIAT. Marek’s design was obviously similar to Jaguar’s legendary XK unit; however, the DB4’s engine utilizes all-aluminum construction, resulting in a lighter, more powerful engine than the ones that preceded it. The result was a stunning fastback design that perfectly married the lines of Italy, while being undeniably British. This 240 horsepower Gentlemen’s Sports Car was the fastest that Britain had seen to date.
The DB4 was manufactured between October 1958 and June 1963, during which the styling changed significantly enough that today Aston Martin enthusiasts refer to the Aston Martin DB4 as being produced in five different series. The ‘Series II’ automobiles are quite unique for being the first to feature a front hinged bonnet, larger brakes, as well as various minor mechanical improvements for better performance over the Series 1 cars. The Series II DB4 is also unique as it is the last to feature the one piece “cathedral” style tail lamps, the tall bonnet scoop and the original grille design – characteristics considered by many to be iconic to the design of the classic DB4. Only 351 Series II cars would be constructed and given their unique styling cues, they have become commonplace among some of the finest auto collections across the globe.
The 1960 Aston Martin DB4 Series II Sports Saloon featured here is finished in gorgeous Almond Green with an impeccably-kept black leather interior.

Finance rates as low as 5.9%.
We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.
We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.
Terms available up to 144 Months

Daniel Schmitt & Company has described the above-mentioned vehicle to the best of our ability. However, as with all pre-owned automobiles, the condition is subjective, and we recommend that the potential buyer fly out to inspect, as well as test drive any of our vehicles before finalizing their purchase. If it is not feasible for you to personally perform an inspection, we will gladly help facilitate an inspection by an independent service center of your choice and will make delivery arrangements of the vehicle for this purpose. All vehicles are sold in “AS IS” condition. Extended warranty options are available on most vehicles. Please be advised that no verbal statements concerning any vehicle constitutes a representation or warranty of said vehicle. Our goal is to provide you with the best service and buying experience as possible. All purchases include an additional $385 processing fee which covers the processing of paperwork, pre-vehicle delivery costs, FedEx shipping fees, and a 30-day temporary registration plate so that the vehicle can be driven prior to the title transfer. (ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL BUYERS: Please be aware that you will be responsible for the Federal Reserve fee(s) charged for all incoming wires).
In regards to winning bidders and Buy It Now customers: All winning bidders and Buy It Now bidders are encouraged to fly out and personally inspect the vehicle. If you deem the vehicle is not as represented upon personal inspection, we will not only refund your deposit, but will also reimburse your airfare at the cost of a coach ticket. Feedback must be left at the time of delivery upon final inspection.
Pertaining to non-eBay winners: Anyone who has provided a deposit but whose purchase is still pending, please note that said vehicle will not be held and is subject to being sold at any time until all contingencies are removed and the purchase order is signed.
The advertised mileage represents the actual miles when the car was posted online. These vehicles are test-driven and actual mileage may vary at the time of sale.
All used vehicles should be assumed to have some degree of wear. We do not manufacture our product. Each vehicle’s brand has its strengths, styles, tendencies, and shortcomings. Despite our best efforts to verify a vehicle’s mechanical condition, we are not able to warranty a manufacturer’s workmanship or a previous owner’s diligence in care of said vehicle. Due to this reason, all vehicles are sold “AS IS”. There are no mechanical guarantees, expressed or implied.
Daniel Schmitt & Co. reserves the right to end the auction at any time.
