by Bertone via Arnolt (1954)

These particular cars, chassis numbers LML/502, LML/505 and LML/507 are the  three known Bertone Spiders made for S.H Arnolt, from the pen of rebounded stylist, Franco Scaglione. For eight years, Scaglione was chief designer at Bertone and was responsible for both the ‘Arnolt’ MG, the very similar Arnolt Bristol, plus the Alfa Guilietta Sprint and 1954 BAT 5 Show Car. Each of the three Aston Martins are subtly different and thankfully all still survive to this day.

Whilst chassis LML/502 and LML/507 were minimalist stripped out barchettas, LML/505 has the addition substantial overriders in the grille, full height windscreen plus front and rear bumpers. The rolling chassis originally had the 2.6 litre engine, but by the time that the bodywork and trim was completed in Italy, it appears that all chassis had received the more powerful 2992cc Vantage tuned engine, capable of producing 140 bhp. I first saw LML/505 at Andre Blooms Thoroughbreds in the Spring of 2000 whilst finished in light blue. Subsequently 505 has recently been fully finished to a concourse standard and was exhibited at the AMOC spring concourse at Woburn Abbey in May 2004. Not surprisingly, with 98.5 points, the car won outright the Feltham class. At Pebble Beach in 2007, LML/505 claimed third place in the Class for Aston Martin Post-war Coachbuilt Cars.  As of Summer 2013, the car on display in the Blackhawk Collection, Danville, California.
