$118,000 1954 Aston Martin doubles estimate at H&H classic car auction

An unaltered DB2/4 was the star of the show at H&H's British car sale in Buxton

H&H's classic car sale on April 13 was a day to remember for collectors and investors in British motors.

A 'barn find' 1954 Aston Martin DB2/4 was the car that really set the saleroom humming.

Opportunities to purchase such completely unaltered early David Brown cars are few and far between, and the hammer eventually fell at 72,600 - double the estimated price.

Topping the results was a charmingly patented 1963 Maroon-coloured Aston Martin DB4 Series 5. It had formed part of a large private collection for the last 18 years and lain unused for the last four. It made 103,400 and will now require some light recommissioning work before returning to the road.

This 1954 Aston DB2/4 made 72,600

Jaguar E-Types are strong currency at present as befits an automotive icon celebrating its 50th anniversary.

A 1964 3.8 Roadster found a new home for 45,100 while a 1967 Metallic Blue 'Series 1.5' 4.2 Roadster was not far behind at 40,150.
