This 1962 Aston Martin DB4 Was Pulled From A Barn After More Than 30 Years


A 1962 Aston Martin DB4 has been discovered hiding in a U.S. barn and if restored, could be worth in excess of $1 million.

This Aston Martin DB4 is a numbers-matching car and has been sitting in storage for the past 30 years. The story goes that after the previous owner returned from Vietnam in the late 1970s, he went to work at a local body shop and was instructed by his boss to help with a repair on his DB4. Following several weeks of work, the DB4 was repaired and the boss handed over the keys to him.

After taking possession of the car, the owner had it towed to his home, parked it in his barn, and planned to restore it. However, he never got around to it and it was only recently brought out of storage after more than 30 years.

Aston Martin produced roughly 1,129 examples of the standard DB4, making it a very rare find. It sports lightweight alloy body panels crafted by Carrozzeria Touring of Milan and this car left the factory painted blue. While much of the paint has faded over the decades, there’s no doubt that the car could be brought back to its former glory at the hands of a good restorer.

Powering the DB4 is the original 3.7-liter straight-six that in the day, produced 240 hp at 5,000 rpm and 240 lb-ft (325 Nm) of torque at 4,200 rpm. Images show that the engine is covered in dirt and grime but if it is dissembled, cleaned, and fitted with some new parts, it should be repairable.

The car has been listed up for sale through Gullwing Motor Cars in New York and while the listing doesn’t include a price, The Sun claims the dealer wants around $320,000 for it.
