“Upon completion, the car received FIA papers in September 2000 and participated in the 2001 Goodwood Revival.” Imported to the United States in 2003, the DBR2 is titled as a 1958 Aston Martin for road use with a horn, speedometer, and all that jazz. The straight-six engine, which is reportedly sourced from a DB5, runs perfectly fine on pump gas according to the seller.
Connected to a Tremec five-speed manual transmission with a custom-made bellhousing, the DBR2 further boasts a pressure plate from McLeod Racing, a hydraulic clutch, and a Girling master cylinder. A one-piece prop shaft with two universal joints splined into the stick shift delivers the goodies to the rear end, which features a Ford Cosworth limited-slip differential.
Hand-crafted from alloy, the body shell captures the British automaker’s motorsport heritage with Sage Green paintwork and Bright Yellow for the grille opening. There may be signs of use and a couple of chips on the front fascia, but when you think about it, patina makes a classic racecar better.
In addition to what you see in the photo gallery, the sale includes a two-piece Lexan windscreen that’s an idea taller than the current screen. As for the asking price, Fantasy Junction lists the vehicle at $379,500.
