The early-era Aston Martin will headline the Gooding & Company’s Geared Online Scottsdale Edition next month

Gooding & Company auction house has this week unveiled the early highlights of its upcoming Geared Online Scottsdale Edition; the most noteworthy being a Bertone-bodied 1954 Aston Martin DB2/4.

The storied vehicle is one of just two DB2/4 chassis built with the particular convertible body style and as such is set to fetch anywhere between US$1M to US$1.4M as it crosses the online block next month.

Presented in a striking Metallic Blue colourway, this Aston Martin is still in excellent overall condition despite its age and history, and is also offered with a proper tool kit, a particularly extensive history file, a copy of the factory build sheet, BMIHT Certificate, correspondence, restoration records, photographs, and ownership documents that date all the way back to the original owner, car enthusiast and San Francisco Opera member, Edith Field.

The vehicle has also won First Prize in the Feltham Aston Class in September 2011—but the vehicle has not been exhibited since receiving the award at AMOC Autumn Concours held at Chavenage House and currently resides in a private collection in the United States.

“Chassis LML/506 represents a special opportunity to acquire a coachbuilt Aston Martin of quality and distinction,” the auction house said in a press release. “Given its attractive open Bertone coachwork, fascinating provenance, and show-quality restoration, this Aston Martin is a very special example of the DB2/4 worthy of serious consideration.”

Gooding & Company’s Geared Online Scottsdale Edition is set to begin January 18, 2021 at 9 a.m. PT and will run until 10 a.m. PT on January 21. For more information on the sale or to register for online bidding, be sure to visit the official Gooding & Company website.
