Lost and Found: 1965 Aston Martin DB5 LHD Matching Numbers Out of 50 Year Ownership

This extremely original 1965 Aston Martin DB5 is a matching numbers left-hand drive example out of 50 year ownership. Offered with its Factory Build Sheet and Heritage Certificate, this DB5 was delivered new in one of the models most definitive color schemes Silver Birch with Red Connelly leather. Never restored and never offered publicly for sale in 5 decades. The motor turns freely but it's not currently running as it's been sitting off the road for several years. 

 
There is no other Aston Martin as iconic as the DB5. Launched in 1963 as the companys flagship grand tourer, it instantly became an object of desire. Interest went stratospheric with an unforgettable appearance in the 1964 box office smash Goldfinger. But the DB5 was so much more than a handsome film prop. Based on the outgoing DB4s chassis, the DB5 boasted nearly 170 updates and modifications, including the attractive, competition-style, covered headlights borrowed from the DB4GT. Mechanical updates to the running gear included a redesigned suspension, with the front adjusted for camber, and Armstrong Selectaride shock absorbers added in the rear. All four corners were equipped with servo-assisted Girling disc brakes. The most notable advancement was the new 4.0-liter, inline, six-cylinder enginean enlarged version of the DB4s all-aluminum, dual overhead camshaft unit, breathing through three SU carburetors as on the previous DB4 Vantage. The enlarged engine provided spirited acceleration, with some 40 pound-feet of additional torque making it more responsive in the lower rev range. Coupled with the fully synchromesh ZF five-speed manual transmission, the result was a true drivers carswift, surefooted, and comfortable. 
 
Any DB5 is a blue-chip Aston Martin, just as joyful to drive as it is to admire in a serious collection of sports and GT cars. It's almost impossible to find an unrestored left-hand drive DB5, so this matching numbers unrestored example out of 50 year ownership is likely a once in a lifetime opportunity for any enthusiast or collector.
