1958 Aston Martin DB 2/4 Mark III Found in St LouisAston Martin cars are appreciating quickly. This is a Aston Martin DB 2/4 that is for sale in St. Louis. It was posted 11 hours ago and looks to be a good deal that will go quickly. Seller states the car has been completely and correctly restored. It is a show quality restoration. This car is currently at the Amelia Island Concours in Florida. It will be transported to St Louis this week where it will be garaged. The owner lives in Switzerland and the broker handling the transaction wants 5% upfront. It sounds a bid shady and should be checked out thoroughly before handing any money over. If its a legitimate sale and everything checks out this would be a great addition for any collector. An early Aston Martin that is in pieces with no interior and a non running non matching engine already commands $120,000 minimum. You could not restore a car for less than the sellers asking price of $225,000. Please be cautious with this one but some of my best transactions have occurred when I was willing to go the extra mile when no one else bothered to go see it.

Aston Martin DB5 ProjectI went to see my friend’s Aston Martin Project today and 1 of his 5 German Shepherds was waiting to greet me. I wanted to see how the restoration has been coming along. It looks amazing in bare metal. This project is an Aston Martin DB5 that has been taken down to bare aluminum for a full restoration. The Body repairs are close to being done. In the past 3 years, these cars have skyrocketed in price. It seems like only yesterday they were going for $100,000 and now they are $600,000 plus! Its such a beautiful car and I cant wait until its completed.
