A drive down memory lane with David Brown’s Grandson

25 September 2013

As part of a photo-shoot for a forthcoming edition of Vantage magazine, Aston Workshop's Clive Dickinson was recently invited to Huddersfield to meet Adam Brown, the grandson of David Brown.

The photo-shoot took place outside of a hotel that was once the magnificent family home where Adam had grown up with his grandfather. The pictures will feature in the winter edition of Vantage magazine along with recollections from Adam of those early days.

Tractor manufacturer David Brown bought Aston Martin in 1947 and in 1950 the company announced the DB2 followed by the DB2/4 in 1953 and the DB2/4 MkII in 1955.

Vantage magazine specifically requested our DB2 Vantage DHC after seeing it at on our website. Not only is this Vantage model a top notch restoration and incredibly rare, but it also happens to be a 1953 example, exactly the same as the tractors!

Here at Aston Workshop we feel very fortunate to be able to offer such a beautiful example of this rare classic for sale. It really is an eye catcher as can be seen from the level of interest we have had so far. Classic Cars magazine have also spotted our lovely DB2 Vantage and have recently completed a full road test and photo shoot to be featured in a future edition.
