Aston Martin motor sale could inspire classic car insurance buyers

A 1954 Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk 1 3-litre is set to be offered at auction at Historics at Brooklands.

It could prove to be the sort of vehicle that classic car cover seekers get excited about, judging by details released by the auction house.

The model has been in a chicken shed for 34 years but will soon be out in force, meaning car enthusiasts can feast their eyes on the valuable automotive.

It has undergone a £20,000 restoration under the bonnet, giving the motor the sort of appeal that may go down well with people who love vintage motors.

Furthermore, the engine has been rebuilt complete with new liners, mains and chains, among other features.

In total, the vehicle is expected to fetch between £65,000 and £85,000.

Recently, it was announced that a 1935 Bentley will be auctioned at Brooklands on June 2nd, which may whet the appetite of drivers across the country.
