1964 Aston Martin DB5   £POA


This DB5 left the factory in September 1964 in its original Sierra Blue with Fawn trim and according to the manufacturers build sheet was first registered to Woodward (Hampstead) Ltd, furniture manufacturers. Subsequent history is unclear but Aston Martin Factory records show it did return for servicing in March 1971. At some point following this, the car was exported to Japan where it remained until being discovered by Desmond in a scrap yard in a very poor state but still on its original colour and trim combination. Several months later in 2005 the DB5 was repatriated to the UK and a full ground up restoration was commenced by Desmond J Smail Ltd on behalf of its current owner. Due to other commitments the project was paused for a time before finally completing in 2012 and the car has had very little use since. The car is in perfect condition and ready for use.
