Known History

 

​​1953 Aston Martin DB2 LHD: One of Only 309 DB2 Coups Produced. Matching Numbers

 

Chassis No. LML/50/305

Engine No. VB6B/50/1138

 

One of Only 309 DB2 Coups Produced, A Factory Left Hand Drive & Numbers-Matching Example, Late Production DB2 & Lifelong California Car, Offered with Original Build Sheet and Aston Martin Heritage Certificate, Very Original Condition Throughout, Delivered in New Black over Gray Livery, Excellent Example to Restore for Show or Service to Drive, Eligible for Vintage Road Race Events Throughout the World Including the Prestigious Mille Miglia.

 

Chassis number LML/50/305 was built on December 20, 1952 and dispatched January 9, 1953 as a LHD, export model with instruction book and rear seat - handled by British Motor Car Distributors. This DB2 was purchased new by Phillip Farrar of Fresno, California in Black with Gray leather upholstery, as confirmed by its accompanying original build sheet. With long-term California residency, this remarkably special Aston Martin was recently uncovered after decades of dry garage storage. Many items had been removed for restoration or restored including the chrome and trim while the interior remains remarkably original. Now available for worldwide purchase and delivery from our Houston, Texas facility, the car remains very complete and well preserved for mechanical refurbishment or an outstanding candidate for concours restoration.

 

Currently displaying one repaint applied later in life, there is evidence of its factory black hue visible both in the engine compartment and jambs, and as stated the cabin remains largely original throughout. Excellent aluminum body panel fitment pairs well to numerous body number stampings (68237) found throughout the entire car, including the body panels, trim and upholstery. The dry and remarkably solid engine compartment and undercarriage of LML/50/305 is a very rare sight among this breed. The aluminum body is very straight and with good gaps. Many original parts are included and pictured.

 

With a tremendous racing pedigree including victories at Le Mans and the Mille Miglia the DB2 is one of the most important and iconic Aston Martin models of all time. This is an opportunity not to be missed, we strongly recommend close attention to this example as they are few and far between, especially in left hand drive configuration.
