JD Classics on Pebble Beach Podium with DB2

1950 Aston Martin DB2 ‘Washboard’

JD Classics has gained major recognition at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance – the world’s most prestigious classic car event – for the sixth year in a row.

The renowned classic car specialist was invited to enter with a 1950 Aston Martin DB2 ‘Washboard’; one of just 50 ever produced. The car had been presented to JD Classics for major detailing by its owner and the Concours d’Elegance was its first concours appearance, making its third-in-class award all the more impressive.

The DB2 sat on Pebble Beach’s incredible ocean-side 18th fairway, among 200 of the world’s rarest and most iconic classic cars as the judging panel carefully examined each model on display. With a panel of more than 100 judges, many with more than 30 years’ experience judging concours events, the process was fastidious.

The judges were impressed with the work of JD Classics’ technicians, awarding the DB2 third place in its class, just behind the second-place 1946 Delahaye Type 135 and class-winning 1953 Abarth 1100 Sport Ghia Coupé.

Derek Hood, Managing Director of JD Classics, said: “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.”
