1964 Aston Martin DB5 - Concours 'Body-Off' Restoration For Sale
Delivered new on 3rd June 1964 via agent C.Sidney Ltd to the first owner ‘Messers.H.B.Westle Ltd’ finished in Platinum coachwork with blue Connolly hide, registered 999 JUM
According to the buff log book on file, subsequent owners included Mr Richard Spurge of Bedford in 1972, Mr Graham Heath also of Bedford in 1973, Mr Mark Hales of Bedford 1974 and later Mr Raymond Boyles
Little is known of the car after this but we understand the DB5 was later sold to Germany and passed through the hands of Aston Martin stalwart Desmond Smail before being acquired by Mr Nigel Parry, York, 2002
Mr Parry commissioned respected marque specialists Post Vintage Engineers to carry out a complete ‘body off’ restoration and images on file show the extent of corrosion when the car was initially dismantled, indeed no stone was left unturned during the restoration!
Extensive body and chassis restoration were completed, documented with photos and invoices which included fabrication of front and rear body skin, new door skins, removal and replacement of inner and outer sills, replacement trailing arm mounts and jacking points, chassis outriggers etc
The suspension and braking system were completely rebuilt and upgraded with Harvey Bailey shock absorbers/suspension kit and the car fully re-trimmed in burgundy 3171 connolly hide with red wilton carpet, all finished to a very high standard
Engine specialists JMB Services were given the task to rebuild the engine to unleaded 4.2L specification, producing a very healthy 316.3 lb/ft torque @ 4165 rpm making the car very pleasant to drive
Finished today in iconic Silver Birch coachwork, the odometer reads just 5 miles since restoration and the overall presentation of the car is as near as one could find a ‘new’ DB5. Properly restored to concours standards with extensive documentation, this DB5 must be one of the very best examples on the planet today
Of the legendary DB 5 Coupe just 898 examples were hand build between 1963 and 1965 in Newport Pagnell.
This wonderful DB 5 was first delivered to James Pollard & Son Ltd. in Lancastershire in March 1964. The further owner’s history is well documented – an old Log Book and the Works Build Sheet .....
