Aston Martin DB4 converible found in UK awhile back--what was paid for it?

On Haggerty (ins. co) website they show an Aston Martin DB4 convertible much like the one Prince Charles owns (and was used by one of his sons during a wedding) , saying:

"A rare Aston Martin DB4 convertible — one of only 70 produced — was unearthed in the UK and garnered £309,500 (approximately $485,000) at auction, including buyer’s premium. DB4C/1104R was never listed in the AMOC Register, and the seller purchased it in 1978 from its original owner, who was a professor at Oxford University. His college parking pass, granting him permission to park in the President's drive, was still attached to the windshield. The car was placed in dry storage in 1979 when the odometer registered only 60,000 miles. The original engine was gone, but the unit that came with the car was a factory replacement, which was installed in the late 1970s."

I'd like to write this up as a barn find but wonder if any Aston people know what the finder paid for it or how it was uncovered...
