What kind of sport car did tippi herden drive in the movie the birds

Character Melanie Daniels played by Tippi Hedren was driving an Aston Martin DB2/4 drop-head coupe (one in a batch of only 102 cars made in its 2 year model run, between 1953 and 1955).

During the recent Virginia Film Festival, the legendary Alfred Hitchc*ck film The Birds which was released 50 years ago was one of the hundred films and lectures that was shown to the public. According to the report from NBC 29 News, hundreds turned out for a showing of "The Birds" at the Paramount Theater. Actress Tippi Hedren attended the screening as well!

According to The Province, we have actress Tippi Hedren to thank for cheap and plentiful manicures and pedicures. The actress, who was a favourite of director Alfred Hitchc*ck and is probably most famous for her role in his 1963 thriller, The Birds, in the 1970s volunteered to help the women in a California refugee camp who had come there from war-torn Vietnam, according to a documentary about the history of the mani-pedi industry.
