1965 Aston Martin DB5 Vantage Shooting Brake
Coachwork by Harold Radford
Registration no. KUK 500D
Chassis no. DB5/2047/R
Engine no. 400/2918V
Estimate: £250,000 - 300,000
Footnote:
The car offered here is one of only 12 DB5 sports saloons converted into shooting brakes by coachbuilder Harold Radford and thus an example of the rarest of all DB5 variants. Eight were right-hand drive and four left-hand drive, and all 12 survive.
In 1965 a new Aston Martin DB5 cost £4,412 (plus an extra £190 if the optional Vantage engine was ordered) to which the shooting brake conversion added a further £2,000-plus. Thus this car's total delivered cost was approximately £7,000 at a time when the average price of a house in the UK was £3,600!
