1963 Aston Martin DB5 Saloon LHD

Designed by the Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Touring Superleggera and launched in 1963, the DB5 was an evolution of the final series of DB4. The iconic DB5 is famous for being the most recognised cinematic James Bond car, first appearing in the film Goldfinger in 1964.

The main differences between the DB4 Series V and the DB5 are the all-aluminium engine, enlarged from 3.7 Litres to 4.0 Litres. A new ZF five-speed gearbox (except for some of the very first DB5s) and three SU carburettors. Standard equipment on the DB5 included reclining seats, wool pile carpets, electric windows, twin fuel tanks, chrome wire wheels, oil cooler, magnesium-alloy body built to superleggera patent technique, full leather trim in the cabin and a fire extinguisher.

Delivered new to the United Kingdom in left-hand drive this Aston Martin DB5 was first registered in November 1963 and is one of 42 DB5 saloons originally finished in Fiesta Red. Its first owner is recorded as one A J R Whiteway of North Common, Chailey, Sussex, who kept the car until 1970 when it passed to one D Blackmore of Esher. According to the AMOC register it took part in the 1970 Fort Belvedere Concours in Windsor Great Park and was awarded 3rd place.

Believed to have last been road taxed in the UK in 1993 and previously part of an International collection, the DB5 is about to undergo full JD Classics recommissioning and detailing after long term storage.
