We have a delectable and authentic series II 1960 LHD Aston Martin DB4 for you.
The car has oodles of provenance. There are documents going back to the start, even correspondence to and from Aston Martin dating from 1965. This is one of only 45 factory-built LHD DB4`s ever! It has the correct so-called `L' labelling on the bodywork and underbody to confirm its` LHD authenticity.
The ownership history starts on the 31st March 1960 when Mr B.L. Smalley of Chicago receives the car from the well-known New York Aston importer J.S. Inskip. In 1994 the car left the USA for Belgium, where, in 1997, the last owner took possession at 30,000 miles. Since then the car has always been well looked after and has undergone various refurbishments and upgrades. The gearbox has been checked over with the replacement of the synchromesh and ball bearings as well as replacing the camshaft belt and pistons.
The suspension has had a Harvey Bailey upgrade, the clutch slave cylinder and brake cylinder have also been upgraded and a new stainless steel exhaust system fitted. During routine maintenance in 2007, the rear axle was completely reconditioned and the flywheel, clutch and every rubber bush were replaced. The car has factory-fitted chrome wire wheels, drivers side mirror, dimed rear-view mirror, oil cooling and Motorola radio.
The car has a `Snow Shadow Grey' finish with a red leather trim. The interior is spotless. The bodywork is straight and the panels all fit together correctly. The underbody is solid and uncorroded. The car has retained the Matching Numbers engine. To date, the odometer reads just 51.555 miles.
This car is, in all aspects, absolutely in top condition.
Gallery Aaldering is a family owned business since 1975. Founder Nico Aaldering and his son Nick are responsible for operational and executive management. The company has been in Brummen since 1987 and started on the location where we currently have our second workshop and detailing shop.
Moving to Brummen
Nico started very small, with only three employees. People who still work for the company today. The company grew rapidly and established a name for itself based on quality. In the nineties it was time for expansions after many years of selling Alfa Romeo, then Italian cars later on followed by British cars as well. At the end of 2000 Gallery Aaldering moved to the current premises at the Arnhemsestraat in Brummen. This showroom was build according to Nico's idea and sketches and has a Neoclassical style to match the classic cars inside.
During this time Nick entered the company after finishing his studies and working for different automotive companies. Gallery Aaldering expanded and gained momentum with the decades of experience offered by Nico and the bright new ideas and progressive vision offered by Nick. The collection became more diverse with an important move upwards to higher segments. Gallery Aaldering has grown to become one of the largest classic car dealers in Europe. There are about 350 classic cars on display on four floors with a Grand Café and special rooms for business meetings.
As a family owned business Gallery Aaldering is proud of its history and traditions, but the future is just as important. At the heart of this all is the passion for classic automobiles. For that reason we participate in the most impressive classic car rally in the world, the Mille Miglia.
A deeply rooted love for cars. You will find this in both our genes and the identity of this family owned business.
