1937 Aston Martin 15/98 Short-Chassis Drophead Coupe by Abbott

Autosport Designs, Inc. is excited to offer this rare, fully restored 1937 Aston Martin 15/98 Short-Chassis Drophead Coupe.  In the 1930s, Aston Martin’s signature 1.5-liter endurance sports racers continually evolved and gained great success, taking the team prize in the 1934 Tourist Trophy race in Ulster and finishing in an impressive 3rd place at the 1935 24 Hours of Le Mans. From this success, Aston Martin looked to broaden its customer base and develop a more versatile offering for the company’s next generation of cars. Initially launched in 1936 as a four-seat tourer, Aston Martin prepared a shorter 15/98 short chassis.
