Herman Graber started as a coachbuilder in Wichtrach near Bern in Switzerland. During the 1930s Graber became world famous for his beautiful convertible and coupe body design and for his perfect craftsmanship. A total of six Aston Martin chassis received Graber Drophead bodies.

This Drophead Coupe Mark I has chassis number LML 562, and is the one and only DB2/4 chassis bodied by Graber. The car stayed hidden in it's native Switzerland for it's entire life until being brought to the United States in the mid-200s to undergo a total ground-up restoration. It still bears the tag of the original selling dealer, Limmat Garage in Bern, a concern that is still in business today.

Introduced to the public at the London Motor Show in 1953, around 102 DB 2/4s Drophead Coupes were built by Aston Martin between 1953 and 1955. It has the 2.6 liter VB6E Vantage engine from the earlier DB2 which produced 125 horsepower.
