Aston Martin 2-Litre 15/98 Drop Head Coupe

Year of production 1937 - 1938

Model: 2-Litre (1936 - 1939)

(Short Chassis - Coachwork by E.D. Abbott of Farnham) - (1937 - 1938)

In addition to the short chassis 2/4 seaters bodied by Abbey Coachworks, another model using the new 8' 6" short chassis with the wet sump engine was announced in June 1937. The elegant drop head coupe was bodied by the coach builders, Abbotts of Farnham and when unveiled at the 1937 Motor Show, was priced at £625 complete.

Unusually for the period, the drop head coupe had a ‘dickey’ seat for occasional use. The photograph here illustrates it’s use for excess luggage, I’m sure that passengers would not like to travel too far in the dickey nowadays.

As the car was relatively heavy, top speed was limited to 82 mph (as tested by Autocar) A total of 25 examples were built.
