C'est quand même une "caisse d'enfer" cette DB2/4. J'adore.

Anyone know if the specific car is identified or if it still exists?

Yes, three stars for "The Birds"....maybe four!

A good friend of mine is a British car restorer, and he told me of restoring this car a number of years ago, possibly early-'80s.

Quote - "I'm often asked about the Aston Martin that was used in the Alfred Hitchcock film, The Birds. The AMOC register tells us that it was a DB2/4 Drophead coupe that was loaned to Universal Studios in 1963 especially for the film. I believe that the car still exists and lives in the US." - http://www.astonmartins.com/feltham/db2_4_drophead_coupe.htm .

If I am not completly wrong, for me the steering wheel is mounted upside down, I mean, the grip profile is facing the driver not the dashboard as it should be :think:

Yes, I take your point about the steering wheel. A throwback from the days when wooden steering wheels were the norm and perhaps Aston placed it as a luxury 'traditional' item. I can't quite make out whether the 'grips' are merely inlays or if they are 'raised'. They do look as if they are raised though and if that is the case perhaps it was, for it's day, a high performance vehicle without power steering and that these grips assisted in steering the vehicle, both at high speeds and also for manoeuvring?
