Footnote:
After a run of 1,119 cars and 75 GTs, DB4 production ended in September 1963 and the model was replaced by the DB5. Powered by a 3,995cc 292bhp version of the DB4 engine, the DB5 saloon and convertible manufacture commenced at Newport Pagnell in October 1963. At first, the new car was fitted with the David Brown 4-speed gearbox and Laycock de Normanville overdrive, but along with a 3-speed Borg Warner automatic, 5-speed ZF transmission was offered as an option and was soon standard equipment. A total of 1,021 DB5 saloons and 120 convertibles had been produced by November 1965.
This DB5 - a right-hand drive fixed head to standard specification but with the 5-speed ZF gear
