This Aston Martin DB2/4 Drophead Coupe was completed at Newport Pagnell in May of 1955. It was a left-hand drive car from new, and was fitted with the larger and more powerful 3.0-liter Vantage-spec engine. It was finished in a Blue Haze exterior color over a red interior, and fitted with a beige convertible top. The car was soon exported to the United States, where it entered the care of Mr. R. W. Cooper of Washington, DC. The subsequent history remains vague, however it is believed to have had just three owners until being purchased by its most recent owner. Comprehensive restoration work has been performed in recent years.

It is currently finished in light blue metallic, believed to be a close match to the car's original applied Haze Blue. It has a dark blue soft top, chrome wire wheels with Vredestein tires, a set of period fog lights, Smith gauges, and the interior is trimmed in red, just as when it left the factory in 1955. There is a wood-rimmed steering wheel, a period radio, and the trunk is equipped with leather straps, along with a period suitcase.

The 2922cc dual overhead cam six-cylinder engine is fitted with 2 SU carburetors and offers 140 horsepower. There is a 4-speed manual transmission and 4-wheel drum brakes.
