ASTON MARTIN MK II SHORT

2/4-seater sports.

Classic Aston of all time, recognisable by its plated vertical radiator shutters and exhaust headers sprouting from the bonnet. Usual oil tank between the front dumb irons for the dry sump lubrication. Latest engine with counter-balanced crankshaft and modified head gives 70bhp, but there are heavier frame side members, an extra cross member, and a reinforced bulkhead, ergo lots more weight.
