Description

This very nice Aston Martin DB5 finished in unusual Champagne paint with its original Fawn leather interior. The car was originally sold new by Brooklands of Bond Street to Eaton Garages, Slough on 18th June 1964 who sold the DB5 on to Drake and Gorham Ltd in Salisbury with a registration number 312 KM.

This is all supported with the buff log book and with the continue ownership.

When sold to the next owner in April 1964 the registration number was changed to the current 5736 PP.

A further private owner is on the documentation before the third owner a respected ex-motor museum owner in the west country purchased the car in late 1990’s. Invoices in the large history file indicate that the bodywork was freshened up.

The original specifaction of the car when new was Fiesta Red paint with Fawn leather interior, Chrome wire wheels and three eared spinners. The new owner also requested the clutch was changed from a Borg and Beck to a Laycock unit.

This beautiful Aston Martin DB5 is in outstanding condition and ticks all the right boxes when owning such car. Not the usual James Bond Silver Birch, but a really lovely Bronze with its original Beige leather trim, something different and classy. Always Garage in Hayes, Middlesex, rebuilt the engine in 1970 and the odometer was reading 64,489 miles, which we feel is correct. Following this all the MOT’s and other documents support the mileage. The was purchased by the previous owner at the Bonham’s Newport sale in May 2012 and used for a few thousand miles and two years with a few minor repairs, before the car was taken off the road. Then over the next two years he commissioned the total body and chassis restoration, including a total engine rebuild to 4.2 litre by Bill Goodall. The interior leather was kept as he felt it was so original and good, he just replace all the seat foams and carpet, just to freshen the car up. Totally rewired, brakes suspension refurbished, new Turrion wheels and tyres, the car wants for nothing. The owner has driven the car for 2,000 miles in the last two years, for special occasions only and lives in a controlled heated garage.
