--Fiesta Red with Black leather interior, Black carpeting and Black convertible top, 4.0 liter 6-cylinder, Factory 5-speed ZF transmission, Original colors, Matching numbers, Original RHD, One of only 123 convertibles produced. Originally delivered to the home market, this DB5C was delivered on April 24, 1964 through Aston Martin agent C. Williams to its first owner, J.A.L. Mould, Esq., of Warwickshire, UK, as recorded on its factory build sheet. The DB5 Convertible would be registered on plate number '236 GDA' which it still carriers today. Well known in the AMOC UK circles, always cared for, but never completely restored, it has always been cared for with the intention to keep as original as possible, but maintained as needed. The body is straight with excellent panel fit, it received a respray in 1995. The original interior is patinated as only original, properly cared for leather can be. It has recently been part of several extensive collection, it has always been maintained when and where need to remain in excellent condition and ready for immediate use at all times. This DB5C has accumulated a documented 90,000 from new. It is rare to find a proper original condition Aston th
Introduced in 3.8 litre form in 1961, the Jaguar E-Type caused a sensation when it appeared with instantly classic lines and 150mph top speed. While, inevitably, the car's stupendous straight-line performance and gorgeous looks grabbed the headlines, there was a lot more to the E-Type beneath the skin. The newcomer's design owed much to that of the racing D-Type and, indeed, the E-Type would be one of the last great sports cars developed directly from a successful competition ancestor. Just as in the D-Type, a monocoque tub formed the main body/chassis structure while a tubular space frame extended forwards to support the engine. The latter was the same 3.8-litre, triple-carburettor, 'S' unit first offered as an option on the preceding XK150. With a claimed 265 horsepower on tap, the E-Type's performance did not disappoint; firstly, because it weighed around 500lb less than the XK150 and, secondly, because aerodynamicist Malcolm Sayer used experience gained with the D-Type to create one of the most elegant and efficient shapes ever to grace a motor car. This exquisite Series I roadster was manufactured on the 28 th April 1964 and dispatched to distributor Peter Lindner in Frankfurt
The NSU Quickly was manufactured from 1953 until 1964 with more than one million Quicklys were produced in total. The frame was a pressed-steel single spar unit with a headset at the front of the unit and wheel attachment points at the end of the arms at the rear of the unit. The unit also incorporated a tower in which the seat post was mounted and attachment points for the engine and the petrol tank. The engine was a 49cc two-stroke unit mated to a two-speed transmission, a bicycle pedal assembly to start the engine and assist propulsion up hills. In need of re-commissioning although appearing to be complete, this NSU should not be a difficult project for a DIY mechanic to restore this motorcycle to its former glory. Once a common sight on the roads, these quaint machines are rarely seen these days; supplied with a V5C registration document.

--Sierra Blue with Tan leather interior and Dark Blue carpeting, 5-speed ZF manual transmission, Concours restoration by marque specialists, 4.2 liter engine. This DB5 was original delivered through Aston Martin agent W. H. Benhams in the UK in its current color Sierra Blue. It made its way to the United States circa 1980. By the early 2000’s it was in the ownership of Mr. C. Sheehan, Tigard, Oregon. During this ownership, this DB5 was used on several vintage rallies and made appearances at several British automobile meetings/concours. It was serviced and received sympathetic restoration by Kevin Kay Restorations in California. Mr. Sheehan sold this DB5 to Autosport Designs, Inc., January 2006 where it was offered for resale. In March 2006, this Aston was sold to a good client of Autosport Designs, Inc., Mr. M. Bless, who has recently moved from New York to Carmel, California. Mr. Bless was also the owner of a DB Short Chassis Volante and more modern DB7 Vantage Coupe at the time. While in California the DB5 was serviced and maintained by Randy and Ricky Reed of Antique Auto Restorations, Monterey, California. Subsequently, this DB5 was consigned to the 2013 Gooding and Company, Pe
The Apollo project was the dream of a young California engineer, Milt Brown, who desired to build an American answer to European GTs such as the Aston Martin DB4 and Ferrari coupés. Brown, who was looking for a coachbuilder, met Reisner at the Monaco Grand Prix in 1960. A deal was made and the first Apollos were built by early 1963 by Intermeccanica. Intermeccanica made and trimmed the steel bodies in Turin, Italy and then sent them to Oakland, California, where the drive train was installed. The prototype's design was by Milt Brown's friend, Ron Plescia, but the nose was too long and the rear vision limited, so Reisner commissioned former Bertone stylist Franco Scaglione to revise it. The Apollo's foundation was a straightforward ladder frame. Suspension and drive train components were adopted from the then-new Buick Special, including a 200hp, aluminium V8 and Borg-Warner manual transmission. The final production bodywork was refined by Franco Scaglione, in Italy. A 1963 Car and Driver magazine road test clocked an Apollo from 0-to-60mph in 8.2 seconds and called it 'a purposeful, distinctive, and practical automobile that an enthusiast will enjoy'. From the beginning, the compan
The DB5 was essentially the next generation of the very successful DB4 with many improvements particularly in power, with the new 4.0 litre version of the Tadek Marek 6 cyl engine developing 280 bhp in standard form or 310 bhp in Vantage. A new 5 speed gearbox and much improved brakes along with many other refinements made this a superb sports car at the time. Introduced in the summer of 1963, only 898 saloon cars and a mere 123 convertibles were built until October 1965, when production was given over to the DB6. The DB5 remains one of the most Iconic sports cars of all time! This DB5 was first registered in February 1964 in its original Sierra Blue with Fawn hide, chrome road wheels and heated rear screen. With a blank build sheet and Newport Pagnell registration, that it still retains today, it is unclear who its first owner was, possibly a factory car? DVLA records show that it came in the hands of a Mr Batt from Caerphilly by 1977 and shortly after sold to Mr Tomlinson of Cardiff in 1978. This second recorded owner kept the car for 22 years during which time its colour changed to Fiesta Red, before being discovered by Desmond in 2000 in a very poor state. The car was sold to i
The DB5 was essentially the next generation of the very successful DB4 but with so many improvements it was launched as a new model. The same 6 cylinder Tadek Marek engine was increased to 4.0 litres with a resultant power improvement of 40hp to 280hp in standard form or 310 hp as Vantage. A new 5 speed gearbox and much improved braking enhanced the cars driveability and along with many other refinements made this a superb sports car at the time. Introduced in the summer of 1963, only 886 saloon cars and a mere 123 convertibles were built until October 1965, when production was given over to the DB6. The DB5 remains one of the most Iconic sports cars of all time! This very original and rare left hand drive Aston Martin DB5 first left the factory in Newport Pagnell in February 1964 to be registered to its first owner Monsieur Haas, Rue De Provenance, Paris. Originally in beige trim, otherwise the specification was as you see it here with factory options of 3.77 P-Lok Rear Axle Ratio and Chrome Wheels. Monsieur Haas kept the car for some time before it came into the hands of Monsieur Maurice Teisserenc of La Palue, near the Atlantic coast in South west France. He acquired the car in

Aston Martin DB5 Saloon (1964) Original Factory Production – Right Hand Drive – 5 Speed ZF Manual Chassis Number: DB5/1406 /R Engine Number: 400/1390 UK Title & CH. Fahrzeugausweis The Aston Martin DB5 is regarded by most Aston Martin experts “as their most beautiful model ever built” This car replaced the DB4 series in 1963 with substantial changes, notably under the bonnet. The 6-cylinder engine’s capacity was enlarged to 4 litres, propelling the motorcar to 145 mph (233 km/h). Significant too, was the introduction of a fully synchromeshed manual gearbox with electric overdrive & latterly the ZF unit boasted 5 forward gears together with 15” Chromium Wire Wheels and Girling disc brakes. Standard equipment on the DB5 included reclining seats, wool pile carpets, electric windows, twin fuel tanks, oil cooler, and magnesium-alloy body built to the Superleggera patent technique and complemented with full hide interior. The DB5 is famous all over the world for being the first and most recognised cinematic James Bond car! The Aston Martin has been featured in several of the James Bond films notably Goldfinger, Thunderball, Golden Eye, Tomorrow Never Dies, Casino Royale, Skyfall and the latest Bond adventure, Spectre. # DB5/1406/R was supplied new on the 7th February 1964 by official Aston Martin agents Mill Car Garages of County Durham to Levey’s Wallpaper Stores of Walstead, Northumberland. Mr D Levey commissioned the car to be built in Goodwood Green as the car is presented today. In 1986 the car was acquiried by Prince Sadruddin (Aga Khan) for his personal use in Switzerland. At the point of export, His Highness commissioned a detailed restoration. The Aga Khan held ownership of the DB5 until 1998 (February) then sold the car to another Genève resident whom kept the vehicle for some 16 years until acquired by Hexagon Classics in 2015.

This matching numbers UK RHD DB5 is in superb condition throughout, and has benefited from extensive expenditure in recent years. It is a great driving car which has appeared at concours events and shows. Fresh from a body and chassis restoration at an Aston specialist, this lovely example is now attractively finished in Georgian Silver rather than its original colour of Platinum (white). Complete with its original logbook, a copy of the factory build sheet, a very rare original Instruction Book and a Heritage Certificate. The history file also includes extensive ownership and maintenance records, including photographs. Originally supplied in the UK, the car later spent some time in Milan where it was initially repainted red, before being reconditioned, repainted and displayed as part of a James Bond tour of Italy. In 2012 the DB5 was imported back to UK and in 2013 had a full engine rebuild and bare metal respray in Georgian Silver. Further works followed at Aston specialists and most recently the car has had extensive chassis restoration. Following this work this lovely Aston appeared at the 2013 Regent Motor Show London and the AMOC Concours at Hampton Court Palace in 2014.
This beautiful car comes with a copy of the original purchase form. It is matching-numbers, and the only alteration in specification from new concerns the colour scheme, originally California Sage, which was changed to Silver Birch prior to the preceding owner's acquisition of the car in 1971. It has the later- DB5 spec upgraded ZF 5-speed gearbox which of course it was supplied with from new. The car was maintained by Ian Mason in the 1970's prior to being laid-up (bills on file). There is a note on file, written in 2005 by the previous owner, Peter Hammerson, which states: 'from 1977 the car was laid-up in a private garage following which it has been undergoing extensive and lengthy restoration.' The latter was carried out by Arthur Birchall & Co of Norfolk between 1987 and 2006, during which period the car benefitted from a body-off, chassis-upwards rebuild while the engine was converted to take unleaded fuel (bills on file). Between 2008 and 2010, the DB5 was looked after by Astin Martin Works. The car then resided in Norway as part of a private collection. It is a lovely example and has covered a believed-genuine 70,000 miles from new (1,000 since restoration) and is in absolutely superb condition. The car is offered with a large history file including workshop manual. It also includes an original and almost irreplaceable Instruction Handbook. The original matching-numbers engine was converted to a 4.2 litre specification in Cheshire Classic Cars' workshop using Cosworth Pistons in 2015. This is photographically recorded. A simply exceptional DB5.
