This is one of the four LeMans model Aston Martins produced in 1932; it has four cylinders with dry sump lubrication. The body is hand-formed aluminum over an ash frame. This example came to the United States in the 1960's and fell on hard times with the body and engine separated. In a derelict state, the body was once traded for a load of dirt. The body and engine were later reunited and passed through several owners and abortive attempts at restoration until acquired by the present owners in 1982. The car had been totally disassembled with many of the parts literally stored in fruit baskets. Following a complete rebuild by the owner and Montane Engineering in London, the car was made road-worthy and joined the Aston Martin Owners Club Golden Jubilee Tour of Europe in 1985 for 2,000 trouble-free miles. It has since toured in several outings in Ireland and the UK.
The car has been exhibited at Pebble Beach and Amelia Island. This car was the factory exhibit car at the Olympia Motor show in 1932 in London.
The car was driven 2000 miles through Europe by the owner's wife in 1985. The car has raced at Silverstone as well as done several solo tours of Ireland in the UK.Also photographed at :
