This Aston Martin DB2/4 Vantage left the factory finished in Moonbeam Grey over a red leather interior with grey piping. It came equipped with heavy-duty shock absorbers, and a speedometer that read in kilometers. Its first owner was A. Durot of Anvers, France, who took possession of the car in November of 1953. It remained in Europe until 2005 when it was sold to Glenn Schuebrein of West Linn, Oregon.

A restoration soon followed which included a rebuild to the transmission and the VB6E-Vantage specification engine. The bodywork was stripped and re-finished in silver; the interior was re-upholstered with red houndstooth trimmed bucket seats installed.

Luca Maciucescu of Santa Fe acquired the car in 2007 and campaigned the car in vintage motor sports events including the 2008 Lime Rock Vintage Festival, the 2008 Coronado Speed Festival, and the Rolex Monterey Motorsports Reunion 2008–2010.

Under new ownership in 2011, the car received further work.
