1965 Aston Martin

DB5 Coupe

Sierra Blue with Tan leather interior and Dark Blue carpeting, 5-speed ZF manual transmission, Concours restoration by marque specialists, 4.2 liter engine.

This DB5 was original delivered through Aston Martin agent W. H. Benhams in the UK in its current color Sierra Blue. It made its way to the United States circa 1980. By the early 2000s it was in the ownership of Mr. C. Sheehan, Tigard, Oregon. During this ownership, this DB5 was used on several vintage rallies and made appearances at several British automobile meetings/concours. It was serviced and received sympathetic restoration by Kevin Kay Restorations in California. Mr. Sheehan sold this DB5 to Autosport Designs, Inc., January 2006 where it was offered for resale.

In March 2006, this Aston was sold to a good client of Autosport Designs, Inc., Mr. M. Bless, who has recently moved from New York to Carmel, California. Mr. Bless was also the owner of a DB Short Chassis Volante and more modern DB7 Vantage Coupe at the time. While in California the DB5 was serviced and maintained by Randy and Ricky Reed of Antique Auto Restorations, Monterey, California. Subsequently, this DB5 was consigned to the 2013 Gooding and Company, Pebble Beach auction where it was sold to it next owner, a well-known Aston enthusiast from New York who decided to embark and a full concours restoration.

During 2013-2014, the car was comprehensively restored to the highest standards by a well-known East Coast specialist. The car was completely disassembled. During the restoration, the engine was returned to the UK where it was uprated by Aston Martin specialist RS Williams to 4.2 liters specifications. No stone has been left unturned, during the restoration this DB5 was converted as per factory original specifications from RHD to LHD. This is a superb DB5 in absolutely every respect! Shortly thereafter, it was sold on to a Texan collector and only recently has found its way back to Autosport Designs New York.

Ready for immediate road use or concours showing.
