This DB5 was delivered on March 6, 1964 to Mr. P. McDonald, Glasgow, Scotland by main agent Callanders Garages Ltd. This DB5 has been kept in long term ownership having compiled very few miles throughout the years (33,763) and until its complete restoration by marque specialists The Aston Workshop in 2008. As per The Aston Workshop records, the body and chassis where completely stripped, the chassis powder coated and rust proofed and all fully rebuilt to as new condition throughout. The body has been refinished to concours standards with all brightwork/chrome being renewed at this time. In the midst of restoration, the DB5 was sold to a German client who requested its conversion from RHD-LHD and for use in its new home in Germany.

The interior was refinished to as new, a period Motorola radio fitted as well as an alarm system and finally a bespoke modern air conditioning system was fitted to ensure summer use and enjoyment to modern car standards.

The matching engine was rebuilt to 4.2 liter unleaded specifications, the factory original ZF 5-speed gearbox fully rebuilt and the differential was completely rebuilt with limited slip differential. Finally, the complete braking and suspension systems were rebuilt, the suspension having the addition of a Harvey Bailey handling kit.

Since restoration and, this DB5 has been housed in a German collection with some of the world's finest Astons and Ferraris. It has been serviced when and where needed by both The Aston Workshop and Aston Martin Works Service.

Sold by Autosport Designs to its most recent ownership, a well-known and respected Southern Collector, this DB5 has been serviced and maintained to keep in its superb condition throughout and to be ready and able for use at a moment's notice. This DB5 has taken part in a few vintage rallies where is has performed superbly.

This DB5 is offered in exceptional condition in every way with no disappointments what so ever.
