Outstanding restoration recently completed

DESCRIPTION:

This breathtaking DB5 Saloon was fully restored by Steel Wings and completed in the Spring of 2017. The exterior color is Sierra blue and the interior is fawn. This car was a complete car at the start of restoration and as a result most of the components and fasteners are original to this car. Items like the original grill, brake servos and hose clamps are all proper original pieces restored and fitted to the car.

This is an exciting opportunity to purchase a DB5 that is fully restored and fresh without having to wait years for the job to be completed. This car is ready to drive and show.

Driving this car is an exhilarating experience with lots of power, great handling, braking and shifting of the ZF gearbox. The factory A/C even works really well.
