1958 Aston Martin DB2/4 MK III
Sold for $357,000 at 2020 RM Sothebys : Amelia Island Auction.
This Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk III was a factory demonstrator that was first privately owned by Carroll Shelby. When Mr. Shelby acquired it in 1958 he was driving professionally for the David Brown Racing Department. He acquired the Mark III for around half price ($3,500) and prior to the sale, the engine was replaced. Mr. Shelby enjoyed a very successful 1959 season with Aston Martin, with a victory at the 24 Hours of LeMans in late June. Following a final service in September, the car was exported to his home state of Texas.

In the mid-1990s, the car resurfaced and at the time was owned by a Harold Wayne Simpson of Santa Cruz, California. It was acquired by Ed Hermann and at the time the car was in a state of disrepair. Mr. Herrmann commissioned RM Auction Restorations to undertake a comprehensive restoration. Around this time the Carroll Shelby ownership was discovered and Mr. Herrmann was able to contact Shelby and confirm several aspects of his ownership.

The restoration was completed in 1999 and then went on to receive several awards at concours around the United States. A short time later, the car was sold to Judge Joseph Cassini. Since then, the car has passed through a short succession of known owners, currently resides with a collector on the East Coast.

The car is finished in its original colors of Cardinal Grey over Red leather. It is equipped with engine number DBA/1312 as was fitted in 1958 before its sale to Carroll Shelby. It has twin exhaust which it received in early 1959.
