Born from the swinging sixties, this 1963 Aston Martin DB5 showcases the true style and hand craftsmanship of a decade that produced so many iconic cars.
This particular DB5 is finished in a Jubilee Silver exterior with a contrasting Black Leather interior, the stylish colour combination gives an already rare car a unique touch.
With only 47,534 miles on the clock, this RHD, manual classic, epitomises a vehicle that has lovingly cherished for over five decades.
The smooth delivery of power comes from the 4200cc engine coupled with the 5 speed ZF gearbox which will give the new owner a sense of reassurance when planting their foot on the accelerator pedal or shifting gears on an open country road.
This DB5 has only had four owners from new and the last owner carefully looked after it for 30 years while keeping a comprehensive history file.
The supplier dealer was Brooklands of Bond Street (the Aston Martin agent for London’s West End at the time), with the first owner being the head of Manger & Henley Ltd. of Borough High Street, London. We note that the build sheet also details service work carried out between the car’s delivery and March 1970, by which point ownership had passed to builder Jack Rhodes. Jack Rhodes was a successful builder with a liking for the ‘Good Life’. However, the recession of the late-seventies hit the building industry hard; Jack’s business took a downturn and many of his assets (including his treasured Aston) had to be sold.
In 1986 the car was bought by John Goldsmith of well-known Aston Martin specialists Goldsmith & Young who in turn sold it to the previous owner in 1991.
Available upgrades while eminently usable in her present state, this car can be readily modified and upgraded as may be desired. Changes from RHD to LHD, engine, and suspension upgrades are all possible and cost-effective. A full-colour change can be made if the new owner desires. We will be glad to quote an all-inclusive price for purchase and upgrade as may be requested by the prospective purchaser.
