Sold for $335,500 at 2015 RM Sotheby's : Amelia Island.
This Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk III by Tickford was delivered new to Dr. Robert Pye, of Woodland, California, on November 28, 1958. It is an early example that had been uprated in period for competition use, and its racing history is highlighted by the 16 period participant dash plaques still affixed to the engine compartment bulkhead. Those period races include Laguna Seca in 1958, Pomona Sports Car Races, Cotati, and numerous others.

The car was later put into storage until late 1987, when it passed into the care of its second documented owner, Steve Warren, who was a resident of North Hollywood, California. It remained in California until 1994, when it was acquired by Robert Daly, of Massachusetts, who commissioned its renovation. Prior to the restoration being completed, Mr. Daly fell ill and decided to sell the car. At the time, the car had undergone some mechanical upgrades and a chassis and cosmetic restoration had been completed.

Early in the car's life, the cylinder head, manifolds, and SU carburetors were replaced by a factory competition head, intake and exhaust manifolds, and triple Weber 40 DCOE side-draft racing carburetors, which were believed to be from DB3S/112. In the front are Girling disc brakes that had become standard during the MK III's production run. A pair of driving lights have been neatly mounted within the grille.

The car's fourth owner was Jean-Francois Wulpillier of Reichenburg, Switzerland who brought the car back to Europe in 2003. The car was given a restoration over the winter of 2004 and 2005, and at the time had 62,500 miles on the odometer. When the work was completed, it was entered in more than 40 classic car rallies. In 2013, the car came into the possession of its fifth owner, who was also a Swiss resident. As of January 2015, its recorded mileage under his tenure was 78,500 miles.
