An Aston Martin DB4 was found by accident in a barn

There are a lot of stories about old cars found by accident in barns. Well, this time it's not about a Cobra or a dusty Corvette, but about an Aston Martin DB4 convertible, one of the only 70 models produced. The car was recovered and now it will be auctioned at Bonhams where it will bring a very generous price.
In the next rows you will find more details on the history of this amazing car. Well, the model had three owners in its life and 60,000 miles on the odometer. Under the hood it still has an original lump, but the engine has vanished.
In its early life, the model had a Tadek-Marek-designed 3.7-liter DOHC aluminum straight-six that produced 240 hp and a four-speed manual gearbox and Girling tires.
The new owner will have to spend a lot of time reconditioning the car and do a lot of repairs, but it will all be worth it, as it will become the greatest car in UK.
The auction will take place on May 21st and the estimated price is between £80,000 and £140,000. Since 1979 to present, the DB4 was preserved in a dry place and was never moved for so many years.
