I’m often asked about the Aston Martin that was driven by Tippi Hedren in the 1963 Alfred Hitchcock film, ‘The Birds’. Well, the AMHT Register tells us that it was a DB2/4 Drophead coupe, chassis number LML/944 that was loaned to Universal Studios in 1963 especially for the film. This famous car still exists and lives in a private collection in the USA.
It is believed that 102 DB2/4 Drophead Coupes were built over two years with more than half in right hand drive for the British market. The left hand drive examples are highly desirable partly due to their rarity and the fact that most countries in the world drive on the right.
