To the casual observer. the 1963 DB5 is virtually
indistinguishable from a late model DB4 Vantage; the DB5 is
essentially a 4. 0 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. br/>Goldfinger complete with special modifications and hidden weaponry.
With 007 behind the wheel of the sensational sports GT. demand
outstripped supply - the factory just couldn't really capitalise on
the marketing success of the DB5. Even today. DB5's are highly
regarded and change hands for sums significantly greater than for
either a DB4 or DB6. The standard DB5 engine was equipped
with three SU carburettors. but also as an option. a so called 'GT'
engine was also made available but with triple Webers to replace
the SU's. These DB5 Vantages were quoted as producing 314bhp making
them capable of around 150mph and 0-60 acceleration times in around
six and a half seconds.

This freshly restored Aston Martin DB5 was originally sold to
Mr. Ernest Jones of Canterbury. Kent before being sold in 1985 to
David Barnes of Kilmarnock in Scotland. It was purchased by
the current owner three years ago whereupon a comprehensive
restoration was started. The car was stripped in the initial
stages to assess the overall condition of the body and moving parts
and once the engine and gearbox had been removed. they were taken
apart and fully inspected. All waterways were cleaned ensuring a
good running temperature with just 600 miles driven since. This was
undertaken by J. M. Dunn. a specialist in the field and his
detailed notes are enclosed in the comprehensive history file that
accompanies this Aston Martin. Just shy of 220 hours were noted down
during the rebuild of the engine and gearbox alone. The paint was
next to be removed; Xenon Worx of Iver in Buckinghamshire looked
after this and went to enormous trouble to ensure a perfect paint
finish from its bare metal shell. The interior trim. br/>including boot. was replaced in its entirety by Classic Trimmers of
Maidenhead. The loom was re- furbished. mainly because modern DB5
looms curiously come with fewer wires than their original
counterparts. All instruments have been checked and recalibrated
and all chroming. including wire wheels. are in good order.
Complete with power steering added in later life. correct jack and
brace and even its handbook present. this highly collectable and
most famous of David Brown's creations has been put together well
and would provide a significant investment for the future.
