Stephen Archer

Stephen Archer was almost literally born into the world of Aston Martins, as a 1933 Aston Martin was his transport to and from hospital for his birth!

Since the earliest age possible, he worked on the family Aston Martins and helped to restore Alan Archer’s DB6 Mk2 Volante in 1975. In 1976, with Alan and brother Jeff, he restored a DB5 to concours winning standard and, between 1988 and 1993, he rebuilt the ex-Lord Brabazon DB2. In 2010–14, he helped build a DP214 replica. Stephen has also owned a MK3; a DB4 series one and two, a 1971 DBSV8, an AM V8 and a 2010 GT4. He won the St John Horsfall Trophy in 2014 in the Ulster LM15 and will race his 2010 GT4 in 2017.

Stephen has written extensively about the marque, with his books including Aston Martin Zagato in 1998, Aston Martin Ulster and All the Ulsters in 2011 and, in 2016, the large tome The Aston Martin DB4GT (all Palawan). He is a regular contributor to Vantage magazine.

Stephen grew up in Essex and graduated in Business from Coventry University. He lives with his wife Ruth in Buckinghamshire and has three grown-up sons. All appreciate and enjoy the charm of Aston Martins.
