1930 Aston Martin International 1.5 Litre Short Chassis Tourer

The 1930 Aston is one of just 81 short chassis Internationals, with matching engine and chassis numbers and is eligible for numerous events in the classic car motoring calendar. In February 2011, the car featured on the front cover of The Automobile being the subject of a detailed article and road test.

Aston expert, Bill Elwell-Smith carried out a full restoration, completed in 1995, reputed to have cost £60,000 before the car came into the possession of David Venables. He used it on the road and in various events (understood to have been the first time it experienced any form of competition), including two outings at the Brighton Speed Trials.

Damian Jones, head of sales at H&H classics, said, 'Accompanied by a good history file containing details of previous owners back to 1930, restoration receipts and correspondence, as well as many pre-war items including a copy factory work sheet, 2007 VSCC Eligibility Document and buff continuation logbook, GH 4093 represents an excellent opportunity for the discerning collector to acquire an extremely desirable example of a truly iconic pre-War Aston Martin.'

Estimate: £110,000-£150,000
