Finished in his typical colours of dark blue with a white band across the nose, the competition specification 250 GT SWB was sold new to legendary British entrant Rob Walker. Soon after taking delivery, he fielded the car for Stirling Moss in the Tourist Trophy at Goodwood, who insisted a radio was fitted as long races bored him. Moss won the race outright and also scored overall victories at Brands Hatch and in the Nassau Speed Week Tourist Trophy. Ahead of the 1961 season, it was sold to another famous British entrant, Tommy Sopwith, whose Equipe Endeavour also ran Aston Martin DB4 GTs. Raced by Mike Parkes and and Jack Sears, it continued to be successful. Parkes finished second in the 1961 Tourist Trophy where he finished second behind Moss in Walker's 1961 specification 250 GT SWB. In the following years, it passed through the hands of some of England's most prominent collectors including Neil Corner, Anthony Bamford and Paul Vestey. During the 1980s, it was lovingly restored by DK Engineering. Still in English hands and still boasting the unique antenna, it is today owned by legendary Formula 1 engineer and team principal Ross Brawn.
