Whilst the regular DB2 body was made of aluminium, Graber had everything ahead of the windscreen in aluminium and everything behind it in steel. This then allowed them to weld the steel body directly onto the chassis. The doors were made in the classic coach building fashion using a panneled oak frame attached to oak door posts. As you would no doubt expect, the additional weight of the Graber coachwork would have a somewhat detrimental effect on the performance.
This particular car was sold at the 2012 Bonham’s auction at Aston Martin Works.
