This Aston Martin was ordered by an Ontario, Canada resident with several special requests, including left-hand drive configuration, Caribbean Pearl livery and dark blue interior upholstery in Connolly leather, Smiths instruments, Armstrong shock absorbers, KLG spark plugs and Dunlop RS5 tires. It was not option with a radio. On November 17th of 1961, the Aston Martin was shipped to Kenneth Alan Turner of Toronto with Budd & Dyer acting as the agent.
In 1985, the car was retired from regular use, and since then, it has been started sporadically to ensure that it remains in running order. Currently, the car remains preserved in wonderfully undisturbed condition. Nearly all of the exterior paint is original. The painted wire wheels wear vintage Dunlop SP41s - tires that were introduced in 1964. It has its original, date-coded Triplex glass, Lucas Le Mans headlamps, window felt, rubber weather stripping and sporting Talbot & Co. wing mirrors.
The odometer reads 39,262 miles. Also included with the car are the original owner's manual with the original sales agents business card, jack, Dunlop RS5 spare and leather jack straps.
In 2011, the car was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company auction held in Amelia Island, Florida where it was estimated to sell for $425,000 - $475,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $440,000 including buyer's premium.Also photographed at :
