Recently I wrote about S. H. “Wacky” Arnolt And His Arnolt-Bristol Cars.
In that article I said,
“… he also had Bertone rebody six Aston Martin DB2s which were badged as the Arnolt-Aston Martin.”
In the back of my mind I knew that I had seen an Arnolt-Aston Martin and with some time searching my photo collection I found these photos of one of the rare Arnolt-Aston Martins.
The number of people and the width of the street did not allow for better photos. Back in 2006 I was not publishing My Car Quest so I did not expect to share these photos or I would have tried harder to get a photo of the rear view.
Notice how Arnolt tried to keep the trademark Aston Martin grille shape.
These photos were taken at the Pebble Beach Tour d’Elegance in 2006 after the cars were parked on Ocean Avenue in Carmel.
2006 is a long time ago that’s why it took me so long to find these photos.
While this is a beautiful car I am not sure that it is an improvement over the original Aston Martin DB2 design.
What do you think about this design?
