'Barn finds' and 'left to rust in peace' are two terms associated with classic cars that have been neglected over time till forgotten. This particular car however, a classic Aston Martin DB4, was found in a forest, where it been sitting for nearly 50 years.

A little over 1000 models of the Aston Martin DB4 were produced between the years 1958 and 1963, and was one of the most desired cars during its time, even today.

This particular find, a Series 2 DB4, was in Britain in 1964 was shipped to the US in 1962, to a voice actor in Los Angeles. A year later, the engine was replaced and the car found a new owner, who also repainted the car green.

At some point during the 1970s, the car was driven to Massachusetts and was left parked outside, where it remained for 45 years. The classic car was discovered in a ‘not so good' state among trees.

To bring the car back to its former glory, a lot of hard work is needed. What is really surprising though is that the car is will be auctioned on 18 January, 2017, alongside the last Bugatti Veyron Coupe.

At the auction, the rusty old Aston Martin DB4 is expected to fetch somewhere between $375,000 – $475,000, despite its condition.
