PROVENANCE

Description

Originally Supplied Via HWM on the 4th June 1965 to the first owner in London. The original build sheet confirms the DB5 was finished in Sera Blue Coachwork with Blue Leather Hide, Heated rear windscreen, Twin Britax Lap and diagonal safety belts, Chrome Wheels and special locks for both front seat squabs to prevent backrests tipping forward. Early Factory records indicate the DB5 was driven regularly with mileage listed at 7444 Miles during a visit in July 1966 and by October 1969 the mileage read 20,348 Miles. This has been shared by the earlier part of its 10 previous owners. The DB5 was used and maintained regularly throughout the majority of its life but by the 2000s the car was in need of restoration and was entrusted to Marque specialists Goldsmith and Young for a comprehensive ‘Body Off’ Full nut and bolt restoration. Pre restoration images on file show the car had been colour changed many years earlier to Dubonnet Rosso with Beige interior and had been converted to Vantage specification with Weber Carburettors but remained very original and complete order. The body was removed which revealed extensive corrosion to the chassis sections, trailing arm mounting area, lower mounting tubes, Jacking points, inner wheels arches etc. New door skins were fabricated and fitted, new rear Valance, New front panel and new sills etc with the process documented with invoices and photographs held on file. The orginal engine was fully rebuilt to 4.2 L Unleaded specification and returned to triple SU carburettor setup. The suspension was uprated, thicker anti roll bar fitted, Telescopic rear shock absorber conversion and aluminium radiator fitted. The DB5 was painted in gorgeous California Sage Metallic Green and fully re-trimmed in beige leather with the restoration being completed in early 2011. Since the restoration the car has covered a mere 2100 Miles only. The latest owner acquired the car in June 2018 to add to a private car collection. He commissioned various works including a new Borg & Beck
