Share on:

Sold for $285,500 at 2021 Bonhams : Amelia Island Auction.
This 1959 Aston Martin DB4 Series 1 Saloon is equipped with a 3,670cc dual overhead camshaft inline 6-cylinder engine breathing through dual SU carburetors and delivering 240 horsepower at 5,500 RPM. The engine is backed by a four-speed manual transmission and there are four-wheel disc brakes. This is the 43rd of 149 DB4 Series 1 example built and was ordered new by Malibu resident Mrs. Virginia Kondratieff through Charles Hornburg Jr's dealership in the summer of 1959. The car was specified in Satin Bronze over Beige Connolly hides, Power-Lok limited-slip differential, chrome wire wheels, and 3.77:1 rear end.

Mrs. Kondratieff took possession of the car on September 12th of 1959 and quickly accrued 800 miles over the next two weeks. By January of 1964, the car had 32,249 miles on the odometer. By the mid-1970s, the car had crossed the United States and was registered to Chester McConnell, Jr in Queens, New York. At some point, the car received restoration work that included a repaint in the original Satin Bronze and a retrimmed interior in tan leather.

The current owner acquired the car in 2008 and has stored it in a climate-controlled garage.
