1960 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato

1960 Aston Martin DB4 GT Zagato

 


Planning was meticulous and thorough. first, we had to build a complete new aluminum body, including the zagato coachwork. the frame was sent to world renowned coachbuilder, Clive Mmart, at the Shapecraft facility in Newport Pagnell, England. There, the Aston body was meticulously crafted out of nothing more than premium aluminum and the skill of the artist’s hands manipulating their english wheels. Stateside, plans were engineered to accommodate a supercharged DB7 with a 5 speed Getrag transmission from an Alfred Dunhill edition. Then another slow boat back to the USA, where assembly of the engine, electronics, upholstery, exhaust, suspension, etc. began. When it was all complete and the last little bit of perfection had been lavished on it – we decided to market the car.

As uncomfortable a notion as selling may have been, it was nothing compared to what was just around the corner. After we unveiled our creation through several websites and Ebay, we were blindsided by something totally unexpected. Someone from halfway around the world was claiming to have another Aston with our same VIN plate. We were dumbfounded and devastated as we had nearly 40 years of title and ownership history. We had no choice but to cease marketing until we could unravel the truth. To this day we have never seen a single picture of this “other” car or one shred of evidence that ours is not the genuine article. But in the interests of fairness to a potential buyer, reputations, exorbitant international litigation cost and who knows how much lost time, we felt the ethical & logical thing to do was reveal the facts of what we knew. With much anguish we secured an unencumbered title with a new VIN plate issued by the State of Texas.

Since that time we have learned that record keeping in those early days at Aston was not efficient and duplicate VIN plates were not unheard of. We believe this car to be the genuine article, but we know it is 100% Aston Martin.
