This stunning re-creation of one of Aston Martin's most iconic models started life as a standard DB4 delivered to a Mr A.G.P Ramsay of Corbridge, Northumberland. #DB4/683/R was acquired by its next owner in 1988 as a restoration project. 

During the next 12 years a plan to re-create the iconic DB4 GT was decided, the intention being to use the best components from the DB4/5/6 range and incorporate several modest upgrades. Works began in 2001. The car was then completely stripped and the chassis was shortened the requisite 5" and rebuilt with new sills, chassis out-riggers, radius arm mountings, engine bay panels, floor panels, ear valance and other new sections as required. The gearbox cross-member was relocated in order to fit a DB5 ZF five-speed gearbox, while the rear spring mountings were modified to accept telescopic shock absorbers. A new aluminium GT front featuring the larger covered headlight covers was manufactured and incorporated on the finished body.

Throughout 2002 and 2003, new parts for the running gear and other GT-specific items were sourced including door glass, fuel fillers, instruments and the final detailing of the body completed, after which the shell was despatched for painting and the mechanical components overhauled. The rolling body shell was completed in late 2005. The rolling body shell was completed in late 2005. As a temporary measure a DB4 Vantage engine was installed in to enable the car to be driven while parts were collected to rebuild the original engine to GT specification. In the course of the next three years the car covered 4,500 trouble-free miles and garnered a 3rd place award at the 2007 AMOC Autumn Concours, Pride of Ownership class.

Enlarged to 4.0 litres capacity, the original engine has been rebuilt to 'unleaded' specification incorporating a new Post Vintage Engineering DB4 GT twin-plug cylinder head casting. The GT cylinder head supplied was a genuine Aston Martin item obtained from AM Heritage; fast road camshafts; new Ross pistons; new cylinder liners; steel crankshaft; new Carrillo con-rods; modified block waterways; block bracing plate; and new triple Weber 45DCOE carburettors complete with air box, cold air feed and remote filter. The engine was assembled using genuine Aston Martin graded bearings and new studs supplied by JMB Services. The completed engine was installed in January 2011 and the car returned to the road in March following further expenditure on re-trimmed front seats (with re-chromed fittings) a new windscreen, new old stock Lucas windscreen washer bottle and new Dunlop VR tyres.

Other noteworthy features include frame-less door glass; GT fuel fillers in rear wings with hidden lockable fillers; aluminium foam-filled fuel tank; stainless steel exhaust system; Lumenition electronic ignition and rev limiter; Magnecor plug leads; high-efficiency aluminium radiator and oil cooler; 3.54:1 ratio limited-slip differential; DB4 front discs gripped by Girling 4-pot callipers; DB5 rear callipers and discs; servo with 1.9: 1 boost ratio and brake pressure limiting valve in rear circuit; Goodridge braided brake hoses; Koni front shock absorbers fitted with adjustable spring platforms; up-rated front anti-roll bar; Spax coil-over telescopic rear dampers with adjustable damping and spring platforms; solid steering rack mountings; 15" wheels shod with Dunlop 185V15 tyres; genuine Borrani spinners; Lightened flywheel with DB6 diaphragm clutch; Lucas alternator conversion; twin Kenlowe radiator fans; Facet fuel pump; Filter King fuel pressure regulator; GT instrument panel; and 3-point safety harness.

Following the GT-specification engine's installation and a spell of running-in, the car was despatched to Chris Shenton Engineering to be rolling-road tuned, checked over and detailed, and is now ready to use. Finished in Aston Martin Black Pearl with Charcoal Leather interior. The car is complete with a copy of the original factory build sheet, a quantity of old MoTs and tax discs, an original DB4/DB4GT instruction book, invoices totalling more than £45,000. An original Aston Martin hydraulic jack is also included.

With all the surviving genuine DB4GTs either in museums or private collections with values now in excess of £3,000,000, this stunning re-creation represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a hand-built car in the true spirit of the original incorporating many of the original DB4 GT parts.
