Aston Martin DB2 Shines at Pebble Beach

A 1950 Aston Martin DB2 ‘Washboard’ was displayed at the 2015 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, held Sunday, August 16th at the Pebble Beach Golf Links in California. One of 50 produced, this Aston made its debut Concours appearance during the Monterey Classic Week event.

The team at JD Classics was invited to enter this Aston Martin DB2 ‘Washboard’ on behalf of its owner. The judges at Pebble awarded the DB2 third place in the ‘Postwar Early’ class, behind the second-place 1946 Delahaye 135 MS Pourtout Coupe Aerodynamique and class-winning 1953 Abarth 1100 Sport Ghia Coupe.

Derek Hood, Managing Director of JD Classics, said, “Winning a prize at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance is an achievement in itself, but for JD Classics to win year after year for six years now is a real testament to the skill of our engineers and technicians in Maldon. At Pebble Beach you really are up against the best in the world, and these results just show we can proudly count ourselves among that rarefied company.”
