The below drophead coupe (Green number 18), formally a works demonstrator, is being raced at Donnington Park in 1999. Fresh from restoration, this car is no stranger to the track as it was raced successfully by Angela Brown, David Brown’s daughter during 1955.
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 the US.
It is believed that 102 DB2/4 Drophead Coupes were built and more than half were right hand drive for the British market.
