Sold for $145,600 at 2021 Gooding & Company : Pebble Beach Concours Auction.
This Aston Martin DB2 Drophead Coupe is a left-hand-drive example that was ordered new via British Motor Car Distributors of San Francisco. It left the factory finished in cream with green leather upholstery and a gray top. Earl S. Fenston of Sausalito, California took delivery on February 2nd of 1953 and reportedly displayed his new Aston Martin at the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance in 1953 and 'received a 1st in class in the Two Seat Sports Car over $4,500 class' - per an article in the Daily Independent Journal of San Rafael, California, dated April 20, 1953.

It is believed that the Drophead Coupe remained in the United States throughout its life and was recently discovered in a Wisconsin garage, partially disassembled for restoration and housed in a collection with two other early Aston Martins.
