Description

Supplied new to a Mr A.H. of Preston, Lancashire in the autumn of ’64, AEM500B was finished resplendent in Caribbean Pearl and complimented with Dark Blue Connolly hide. Supplied through the agent, J. Blake, she came fitted with Chrome Roadwheels, a heated rear screen, two wing mirrors and two Britax Safety Belts.

Powered by the renowned Tadek Marek in-line six cylinder, 4.0 litre engine and breathing through triple SU carburettors, producing some 282bhp, this allowed the model to become a class leader in the market. Remaining at the forefront of capability, DB5 was fitted with servo assisted disc brakes on each corner, complimented with front telescopic suspension dampers and similarly, double acting lever arms at the rear.

A comprehensive restoration of this Aston Martin DB5, by Aston Martin Works – the very home of the model’s birth and re-crafted with the same artisan skills as seen under the same roof some 56 years later, allows the classic car enthusiast to comprehensively enjoy an effectively brand new car built in the same manner with the exception of yet more intensive attention to detail, culminating in some 4,500 man-hours of dedicated labour being lovingly put in to the model.

AEM500B now comes to the market presented in exceptional condition. With this prized example, comes a Platinum level Assured Provenance presentation, signifying the calibre of the very special Aston Martin, ready for its new custodian.
