Complete cosmetic restoration in 1990, including a hand-stripped bare-metal repaint to its current Sage Green color, and a complete restoration of the leather and interior in Tan Connolly leather. Additionally, all chrome was replated to concours levels.
Originally delivered through Aston Martin’s French distributor Garage Mirabeau in Paris in the black lacquer over black Connolly leather, with Dunlop RS-5 blackwall tires. Restored back to its black on black color scheme by marque specialist Kevin Kay Restorations.
This DB5 was pulled from production and sent to Aston Martin Works where the car was modified with wheel opening flares and a sliding soft top sunroof in 1965.
The car presented dates from 1965, the last year of production for this model. A right-hand drive example, it was delivered new to the garage J. Blake and Company Limited in Liverpool with certain options including Marchal fog lamps, special Fiamm horn and heated rear windscreen. This splendid DB5 was converted to left-hand drive some years ago. It has been beautifully repainted in its original colour, ” Goodwood green “, and has a new windscreen and five new wire wheels and tyres. The tan leather interior is original, and the carpets are new. The car comes with a toolkit and logbook.
The vendor has told us that the car has been rigorously maintained, mechanically, to ensure the highest level of performance.
