description
The two-seater spider designed by Franco Scaglione stood out among the nine bodies built by Bertone in 1953-55 on the Aston Martin DB2/4 chassis. It featured some formal solutions adopted on the Arnolt-Bristols barchetta produced in a limited series. Built on chassis no. LML/505, the car debuted at the New York Auto Show in 1954, where it was bought by Mr Schwambauer of Wichita, Kansas. He kept it until 1958 when he sold it to C. S. Wallen, a captain in the US Air Force. Mr Wallen subsequently sold it to Charles Barnett, also an Air Force officer, who started a full restoration in the 1970s, completed by Jerry Rogers (when the total distance covered was 103,000 kilometres). The car was then sold to many other buyers, among which the British man Carlos Monteverde. The Aston Martin DB2/4 LML/505 underwent another complete overhaul in 2004, which returned it to its original splendour.
