Beep beep'm beep beep yeah!

Hitchcock chose a 10-year-old Aston Martin DB2/4 Drophead Coupe, for the 1963 thriller ‘The Birds’. Driven by socialite Melanie Daniels (played by Tippi Hedren) in the beautiful Californian seaside town Bodega Bay. The Aston Coupe, is also driven when they leave the house during the final scene...

The Drophead Coupe version of the DB2 was introduced in late 1950. The two-door original, with its small ‘letter box’ boot, had been re-engineered to make it into one of the world’s first hatchbacks, offering greater rear headroom, two rear seats and the convenience of a mainly glass tailgate.

Video: This is the closest video I could find that spotlights the car used in the classic film.. The Birds(1963).
