1961 Aston Martin DB4 Series II

Chassis number : DB4/558/L

Share on:

Sold for $577,000 at 2019 RM Sothebys : Monterey.
This Aston Martin is one of 349 Series II DB4s produced. Exterior design features include one-piece 'cathedral' taillights, a tall hood scoop, and perforated grille. It is a left-hand-drive example that was delivered new in July of 1961 to Charles M. Huttig of Clayton, Missouri. Mr. Huttig had specified it be finished in Snow Shadow Grey with a red leather interior and chrome-plated wire wheels. It was built with standard equipment for US delivery cars including a Power-Lok differential and 3:77:1 final-drive rear-axle ratio.

By the 1990s, the DB4 had made its way to the northeast, where it was acquired from Doug Petersen's Petersen Classics in 2002 by Richard Phillips of Westport, Connecticut. It soon received a professional restoration, which was completed in 2004. It was then shown at the Fairfield and Greenwich Concours d'Elegance before being sold to Indianapolis 500 victor Danny Sullivan in 2014. The current owner has fitted the car with period-correct Pirelli Cinturato radial tires and period-style seat belts using NOS Britax hardware and matching webbing.

The car has since been shown at the 2016 Hillsborough Concours d'Elegance and the 2018 Rule Britannia inaugural event in Monterey. It is currently finished in Aston Martin Racing Green over parchment-tan leather with contrasting green piping and matching green Wilton carpets.
