This DB4 Zagato was born out of the frustrated desire to own one of these great cars. Chassis DB4/404/R was a standard DB4 delivered to a Mr G Muter in September 1960. It led a full life with a number of owners and was a complete and running car when it was purchased in 1998 with a view to starting the re-build. Marque expert Desmond J Smail project managed the process with Bodylines of Olney handling the chassis and body and neighbouring Michael Hughes of Lone pine with the exquisite paintwork.
Crossthwaite and Gardiner re-built the engine to GT spec with twin spark head and Webers. This was assembled by ex-Aston Martin engine builder, Alan Shackell, an engineer with over 50 years’ experience and a man who worked on the original DB4GT’s in period. This was mated to an original David Brown WR gearbox complete with Borg and Beck clutch and up-rated prop shaft. The rear axle was also re-built and fitted with limited slip differential. All the suspension was re-built and uprated to correct spec and fitted with GT brake callipers.
The interior was trimmed by ex-Aston Martin specialist trimmer, Joe Dorrill who had 40 years’ experience with the company and was another man who worked on DB4GT in period.
The project was finished in 2010 and had taken 3 years to complete. The result is extraordinary, a 1960 Aston Martin DB4 restored to full Zagato specification and done with breathtaking dedication, attention to detail and craftsmanship. Since completion the car has had little use and accordingly still presents in impeccable condition and is offered with original registration documents and an extensive file covering all aspects of the project.
