1964 Aston Martin DB5

RM | Sotheby's - MONTEREY 15 - 17 AUGUST 2019


Chassis No.
Engine No.
DB5/1305/L
400/1258

A factory left-hand-drive example, chassis no. DB5/1305/L is just the fifth DB5 ever produced, sold new through British Motor Car Distributors in San Francisco to the Washington Fruit & Produce Corporation.

The DB5 was purchased by the current owner in 1981 off the street in Sausalito, California, remaining in his private ownership ever since. Presented at Monterey in highly original, never fully restored condition, the matching-numbers DB5 retains its original engine, is finished in its original colors, and features interesting factory options including an overdrive transmission and 3.77 rear axle ratio.

Faithfully maintained by marque experts for the last four decades, the well-documented Aston Martin has been driven and enjoyed throughout its life and offers its next enthusiast owner the opportunity to acquire a very early DB5
