History

This highly original DB5 was supplied new to the Earl of Lonsdale, finished in Silver Birch coachwork with Red hide. Retained by the Earl until 1989, the second owner purchased the Aston that same year from Marksdanes Classic Cars of Shepton Mallet, Somerset, who had just completed a major overhaul of the car following its return to the UK from California

The recorded mileage at that time was 61,363 and for the following twenty-four years (1989-2013) the DB5 was kept in a heated garage with relatively few miles being added to the total (c5000 Miles). Regularly serviced and maintained during the aforementioned ownership by Oselli Ltd of Witney, Oxfordshire, this DB5 is wonderfully original and beautifully patinated, a rare find today

Previous works carried out by Oselli include overhauling the brake servos and master cylinder; removing the cylinder head, re-facing and reassembling with new gaskets and seals; overhauling the water pump; re-coring the radiator; replacing the oil cooler; fitting a new ‘high torque’ starter motor; replacing the left side window motor; and renewing the front windscreen and seals (see bill for £7,273 on file dated June 2006)

More recent works carried out by marque specialists include an engine overhaul, rear axle overhaul, gearbox rebuild, fitting of power assisted steering, upgraded cooling system with alloy radiator and fans, lights converted to LED/Xenon, Koni shock absorbers, upgraded anti-roll bar, and a new clutch assembly (see invoice for £52,595 on file). The car has also been fitted with a Tracker with two transponder tags (Cat 5+)

Presented today in elegant Goodwood Green coachwork retaining its original red leather interior with new carpets, this outstandingly original DB5 is offered with the aforementioned invoices, MoTs dating back to 1989, (copy) old-style logbook, V5C document, BMIHT build sheet and an Aston Martin Works bespoke indoor car cover
