With only a little over 1,200 produced, the 1962 Aston Martin DB4 stands to be one of the most popular classic sports cars ever created. From its unique exterior design to its well thought out interior, this car became the foundation for many of the classic cars made by the luxury car manufacturer.
The 1962 Aston Martin DB4 was developed and produced from the years of 1959 to 1963 with the 3.7 liter Tadek Marek 240hp engine. As for its lightweight frame and body, it was tubular and Italian designed with sleek, flowing lines. Although the factory did not distinguish at the time between the different versions of the DB4, today, owners and collectors classify the DB4s by belonging to one of the five series. Of the 1,213 cars created, there were only 70 convertibles, and of those there were 32 Vantage models. These models are appropriately known as being special due to the small amount created, and for the engine upgrade that featured a 266hp.
With a reputation that touts being the most powerful British car of its time, the 1962 Aston Martin will continue to be a famously classic sports car admired by all. Highly sought after, these sports cars make the perfect addition to a collection. Whether it is the race inspired interior, the super light construction, or the modern Italian styling, the British manufacturer Aston Martin truly captured the essence of what a car could really do and be with a bit of passion and creativity.
The Porsche 356 was the initial production vehicle of the world-renowned automobile manufacturer. This rear-wheel drive, two-door sports car has a rear-mounted engine and agile handling characteristics. Original models used a combination of Porsche and Volkswagen parts. By the end of the car’s production run it was all Porsche. The 356 came in both hard and soft top configurations. In mid-1962, the 356B model incorporated the unique design changes of the T6 body. The result is the birth of the Porsche roadster. After making its debut at the 1961 Frankfurt Auto Show, the first sales of the total number of 1600 cabriolets built were in April 1962.
Building upon its speedster heritage, the 1962 Porsche 356 Cabriolet incorporated improved handling and a more comfortable, refined ride into the already sparkling performance of earlier 356 models. The chrome-framed windshield coupled with the different doors, rear cowling and top combined to create a sportier look and feel, the ultimate version of the 356 Roadster. When powered by the Super 90 engine, you have one of the fastest and most powerful 356 ever built.
The 356B is often under appreciated by collectors when compared to the A and C variants, but the B model is classic Porsche. The 1962 356 Cabriolet incorporates thoughtful and functional design, mechanical robustness, high-quality, value and reliability, the tried and true hallmarks of Porsche.
The 1962 Porsche 356 Cabriolet is honed to a racers edge. It pays homage to its lineage while providing an excellent open-road driving experience.
