1964 Aston Martin DB5: One of just 220 Left-Hand-Drive Examples Produced
Of the 899 DB5 coupes built, just 220 were constructed as left-hand-drive cars; of those, just 193 were intended for US delivery. Completed in June 1964, this Aston Martin was dispatched to legendary car dealer Peter Satori of Pasadena, California. According to factory records, this DB5 was originally finished in the distinctive color scheme of Sand over green Connolly leather and generously optioned with chrome wire wheels, a limited-slip differential, Normalair air-conditioning, and Armstrong Selectaride adjustable suspension. Having spent a majority of its life garaged in Southern California, this elegant DB5 presents particularly well. Currently finished in striking dark green metallic with black leather interior, it is a most attractive example, with many important original details still intact. Boasting an ideal factory specification, long-term single family ownership, and genuine character, this left-hand-drive DB5 is surely among the most desirable examples of a David Brown Aston Martin. Among the most intact and ideally outfitted of its kind, this outstanding DB5 is deserving of a place of honor in sophisticated collections the world over. Following the recent sale of the "James Bond" RHD DB5 for $6.4 million dollars, this Left-Hand-Drive example looks like quite the bargain.
