Chris rebuilt his 1st Aston cylinder head when just turned 17, by 18 he was rebuilding 40% of the Aston engines that came through Four Ashes hands, including all of the race engines for MYT 625, the Racing DB2 that the garage owned, which is now owned by Chris & Jean.

What Do Four Ashes Do?
We have been servicing, rebuilding, restoring & racing Aston Martin cars for well over 50 years, Chris has over 45 years experience with the marque.
We offer Aston Martin parts & an extensive range of our own parts (made locally in the UK)
We are an established business both well known and respected in Aston Martin, Classic Car and Historic Racing circles in the UK and Europe.
Besides the full range of normal mechanical services you would expect we have a first rate body / panel specialist locally and we use a reasonably local first rate paintwork specialist, all dedicated to giving you the best possible workmanship.
Our Remanufactured Parts are normally UK manufactured and are being added all of the time, so keep an eye on our Whats New page regularly. (these parts normally modified for better performance, ease of use or lack of oil leaks or just plain improved)
We put descriptions on the Whats New parts page as they become available and also information on parts we will be selling in the near future. The Parts side bars shows pictures and descriptions of our standard range of parts.
We give out instructions for fitting & use (often with photo's) whenever we sell our non STD parts (often instructions for use are included with many STD parts) except for racing parts.
Our specialist knowledge is for vehicles ranging from the DB2 through to the DB7 with the emphasis on DB2 to AM V8 1988. If your interest is in Prewar cars can we suggest that you contact Ecurie Bertelli.
