1952 Aston Martin DB2 DropHead Coupe

  • Chassis Number: LML/50/296
  • Engine Number: VB6R/50/1122
The DB2 helped revolutionize the postwar sports car boom. It sported elegant Italianesque styling, and it won races with its innovative coil springs, space frame, and tilt bonnet.

This DB2 is one of 100 drophead coupes and 10 authentic left-hand drive examples. The car was first owned by Herbert Turner Matson of Victoria, British Columbia, who was a war correspondent for the Canadian Army during World War II and then a newspaper publisher. Educated in England, Matson had a penchant for all things English, and the magnificent DB2 with its English panache fit the bill. Upon receipt of the car in Victoria, Matson and his third wife cruised high society and the car became something of a celebrity. It was eventually sold to a fellow Canadian in Toronto and then in 1987 it was repatriated to England and entered a prestigious collection. Today, in the care of its current owner, the car wears its original colors and interior palette.
