Detailed History
In the first two years of the cars history the car clocked up 21,000 miles and was a regular visitor to the factory. History on the car picks up again in the early eighties, where the car was restored and the engine rebuilt. With an ownership spanning nearly 30 years, the latest keeper of this DB5 had the car converted to Vantage specification in the ‘90s, as well as an engine rebuild in 2005 carried out by Goodwood Green.

Recently over £100,000 has been spent on a major overhaul which involved a strip and rebuild of the underside, engine bay re-paint with engine out. Engine tune and bench test with new head gasket. Rebuilt Weber carbs, Interior re-trim, fresh paintwork, new wheels and tyres plus much more. A comprehensive history comes with this car.
