1952 : Rally to the Midnight Sun. 5th overall and 2nd in class. Out of
170 cars! Best placed Aston ever...
Has had an enlarged rear window. Original type refitted during the
1987-1992 restoration (thus the 1996 AMOC register info
comes a bit late in the history of the car).
Hans Svedberg wrote me about LML/50/43
because his father owned this
beauty from 1956 to 1967 but he also wrote about LML/50/46.
LML/50/46 with B 30327
registration in the family garage.
LML/50/46 with T 12110
registration in the family garage. Note
Behind is LML/50/161 that may remember you something (just have a
at my page about DB2 barnfinds...)
Next to it is DB4/276/L
being rebuilt after a huge crash.
Friend Alex sent me a
link to get those recent photos of LML/50/46:
OGX 606 plate barely visible under original plate.
Rear window reverted to correct size.
Engine comes from LML/50/41.
LML/50/41 was owned by famous Swedish writer Brigitte Stenberg from
after two previous owner.
Here she appears next to LML/50/46. Surely did
she want to see again a car as the one she liked...
(Google pics photos)
Did Brigitte Stenberg know when she leaned on LML/50/46 for the
photo seen higher that the engine of her past car was in it?
The answer is yes
as could be
confirmed to me... She had fond memories of this car and had many
details still in mind.
