Introduced in 1934, the Mark II was Aston-Martin’s replacement for the Le Mans model. It sported a new stronger chassis and an improved engine with counter-balanced crankshaft. Originally available in either short or long wheelbase versions, the shorter version is mechanically virtually identical to the famous Ulster racing car, one of which came 3rd overall at the Le Mans 24 hour race in 1935. A number of MK II cars competed in period and the competition lineage can be clearly seen in the MK II making it an extremely capable and fast car, suitable for rally, touring and even racing events. The long chassis version only differs from the short by the length of a footwell for the rear seats thus turning them into very usable cars for 4 people. The body style is a development of the long chassis Le Mans cars which were the last of that type to be made and as was often the case with Aston-Martin, were built partly as development cars with an eye very definitely on the new model, the MKII.
This car which was built in 1934 has been well looked after over the years by a well-known marque specialist and is in very good condition and drives extremely well. A rare matching numbers car! Very recently returned to its original black colour scheme this car looks fantastic and would do well at concours, touring and rallying. Available with a selection of early photographs and correspondence.
Available to view and test at the Ecurie Bertelli purpose-built showroom and restoration facility. Please contact Andy Bell or Robert Blakemore for more details.
