To the casual observer, the 1963 DB5 is virtually indistinguishable from a late model DB4 Vantage; the DB5 is essentially a four-litre version of the DB4. Initially fitted with the four-speed David Brown gearbox, the vast majority of cars received the superior five-speed gearbox either as an option or later as standard fitting. So why is the DB5 so often thought of as the quintessential Aston Martin. Without doubt, this is due to a Silver Birch example featuring in the 1964 James Bond film, Goldfinger, complete with modifications and hidden weaponry. With 007 behind the wheel of the sensational sports GT, demand outstripped supply - the factory just couldn't capitalise fast enough on the marketing success of the DB5. Even today, DB5's are highly regarded and change hands for sums significantly greater than almost anything else in the range. Its production, however, was fairly short-lived, ending in September 1965 after 1, 021 models had been manufactured.
Presented in stunning Silver Birch coachwork with contrasting black leather trim this example purchased in the mid 1990’s and was subject to a body off restoration and nut and bolt rebuild spanning two decades, importantly retaining its original factory bodywork and lastly travelling only 500 miles since completion earlier this year.
Originally Caribbean Pearl Blue, the car was repainted in the iconic colour it wears today and the original black leather retrimmed by Aston Martin specialists.
In order to retain its original factory registration, Aston Martin Heritage Trust have inspected and validated this DB5’s authenticity to the DVLA where BNE 251C was reassigned with its current V5C. Accompanying the history file are photos throughout the restoration and many invoices including the full engine rebuild. This splendid example of the iconic DB5 would grace any collection but is also ready for the road. The ultimate attainment for many an Aston Martin enthusiast.
