Chassis: DB4GT/0162/R
One of 47 right-hand drive DB4 GTs built, this example was sold new to renowned British artist Ralph Maynard-Smith. Just three years later, the talented painter passed away at a young age and the Aston Martin was sold through its original dealer Brooklands Motors to David Harris. In 1967, it joined the stable of David Williams, who raced the car extensively. Eventually, the engine started to develop problems and a replacement engine was fitted by the Aston Martin Service department. This happened to be not any old engine but the very engine that had powered one of the Lightweight competition cars that was raced by Stirling Moss in period. Aston Martin also fitted a new chassis plate to list the new engine number of 370/0124/GT. Williams was understandably very happy with his well tuned competition engine and continued to enjoy the car until his death in 1978. Following a long term ownership of David Saunderson, the car moved to Japan from where it was repatriated by David Clark in 2012. The next custodian acquired the car in 2016 and it was entrusted to the Aston Martin Works. They used this very car as a template for the continuation DB4 GTs and while in the process restored the car to its current condition. It was finished in Racing Almond Green and re-trimmed with Connolly leather. In 2019, it was consigned as one of the headliners for the Aston Martin only evening of the RM Sotheby's Monterey sale.
