This fourth series DB4 was manufactured in 1961 and had a rather unusual and special start in life as it was acquired new by the chairman of a large car manufacturer in Germany. It was delivered to Wolfsburg in Germany in October 1961 and it is believed the gentleman retained the DB4 for his personal use and competition product assessment until his premature passing in April 1968 at the age of 69 years old, just five months before he was due to retire.
The factory Build Sheet shows the car returned to the factory in May 1962 for a repair to the gearbox over-drive. Also noted is the second owner acquired the car in 1970, so it is expected the car manufacturer retained the car for a couple of years after its owner passed away.
A copy of a Swiss registration document shows the car being registered to a dentist in the city of Bern in May 1993, and after that it was sold by a well-known Swiss Aston Martin specialist in March 2007. The colour is noted on the copy of the sales invoice as Bordeaux Red, but it is unknown when the DB4 was painted this red colour from its original Desert White.
Maintained by the Swiss specialist after sale with a new clutch being fitted in August 2011, Aston Martin Works have subsequently carried out a major service and engine overhaul in early 2018 and a retrim of the interior in the original colour of black Connolly leather.
Returned in recent years to its original Desert White colour, this beautiful Aston Martin DB4 was UK registered in June 2018 and after a thorough mechanical recommissioning by Works it is ready to be enjoyed by a new owner.

If a person writes a check without sufficient funds in an associated account to cover it, the check will bounce, or be returned for insufficient funds. Each state has laws regulating how merchants may respond to bounced checks. In Connecticut, the merchant may file a civil suit and press criminal charges if the check writer does not reimburse him for a bounced check after the merchant has sent several notices regarding the matter.
Posted Notice Requirement
Merchants and other business owners who accept checks must post a notice where customers are likely to see it warning them of the potential consequences of writing bad checks. The notice must include the civil penalties that bad check writers may face, the appropriate Connecticut statute number and an advisory that the check writer may also face criminal penalties
Civil and Criminal Penalties
As of 2010, civil courts may require the check writer to reimburse the merchant for the value of the check plus pay up to $750 if he has no back account or $400 if the check is returned for insufficient funds. If the merchant chooses to press criminal charges, the bad check writer may face a fine of up to $1,000 and up to one year in jail. Writing a bad check is a felony charge if the check was for more than $1,000 and a misdemeanor if written for a lesser amount.
Required Written Notices
If a check bounces, the merchant must send the check writer a letter by certified mail at the check writer's last known address or place of business. Usually this letter is sent to the address on the writer's check. The letter must inform the writer that the check was returned ask him to reimburse the merchant for the amount of the check and inform him of the potential criminal or civil penalties if he fails to do so. If the check writers does not respond to the letter within 15 days of receipt, the merchant must send a second letter. This letter must inform the check writer that he has 30 days to reimburse the merchant before the merchant takes legal action against him. Both letters must be written in both English and Spanish.
