Out of the barn after a 35 years sleep ! Thanks Rick for the photos.




LML/549 (previously listed as unknown DB2/4 #6)


Much work needed for this one...


Fellow Hans sent me some photos of this car with those comments:
Sending some photos of my car LML/571 when we were about to collect it from a nearby town in 1995, and when my father and a friend of him started to strip it down. It had been in that garage for at least 25 years and it came with a Chevy Corvette engine, but fortunately they hade kept the original 2,6 litre, even though it had a hole on one side of the block that ensured a good crankcase breathing. But my father found a used block in England so now it has its original engine VB6E /50/1303. And some photos of 571 in the fifties, a couple of them taken at our yard. So yes, my father seemed to have done something on that car as well.

Seen on website. A bit of "ratlook" or "hoodride" on this one... How nice !

A car found by fellow Astonhill...


Maybe exterior finish should be left as is... Or only varnished.

Note the louvers both on and at the side of the hood. See below:


It seems that only one other DB2/4 was so equipped: LML/928. Both were first delivered in France.
Here is LML/928:

LML/707 is surely the only one DB2/4 with Messier shocks.
Exterior and exterior have been modified in the 1960s. Looks like bigger lamps were fitted below headlamps.

Some nice photos of this car found here on Flickr. The whole "Cool Cars" gallery is really smart by the way.



What I found the most striking was the YKT 423B because as a "B", it' a 1964 one.
Maybe this is a later re-registration, the first owner having kept the original (cherished ?).
I think it's much more probably an import.

But I also found that there was LML/800 (a DHC) that got YKT 871B ! Same DVLA office (KT looks like Northampton).
Only 449 numbers later !
And LML/800 is said to have been found in a barn in the 1990s...

Not really an unrestored car but a wrecked car... Writer Françoise Sagan's DHC

This is a weird photo: Sagan looks sad and the men looks quite amused!

This one has an odd front restyling.
Considering the square hole in the bonnet, maybe there was a scoop.
