This Aston Martin DB4 Series 1 is a left-hand drive example that was delivered new via Aston Martin's United States West Coast importer Charles Hornburg. Its first owner was Paul S. Pollack of Los Angeles, California. The factory order recorded that the car was finished in Snow Shadow Grey with a red Connolly leather interior and equipped with chromed wire road wheels when it left the factory.

This Series 1 car is one of approximately 150 examples built. The Series 1 DB4 is unique in that they were the only model in the DB Series to have the front bonnet hinged at the rear, and thus open from the front.

This Touring bodied Sports Saloon was given a complete and thorough restoration in the early 1990s. After the work was completed, the car was used sparingly and mostly for concours use.

Around 2000, Mr. S. Rodd sold the car through Miller Motorcars Aston martin of Greenwich, Connecticut and found its way into the ownership of Mr. Raymond Minella, where it continued to be used sparingly.

Since the restoration was completed in the 1990s, the car has acquired approximately 6,000 miles.

The car was relocated to the United Kingdom for a few years, before returning to New York in 2015.

The car is currently finished in Peony Red over a Mushroom leather interior. It has chromed wire wheels with period-correct Avon cross-ply tires.
