”This is a car that can get from 0 to 62mph in 2.9 seconds. And onwards to a top speed of 211mph. It’s really, really...
Baytree are delighted to offer this simply stunning 1963 Aston Martin DB4 Series 5 open headlight version finished in its original colours Caribbean Pearl with a White Gold leather interior. Which is confirmed by BMIHT factory record certificate within the car’s documents.
This is an original right hand drive UK car registered in Wolverhampton on the 1st of June 1963 which the original registration book is present for confirmation.
In 1973 the car was purchased by a gentleman in Scotland who owned the car all the way through to 2009 by which point it needed some restoration. It was then purchased by the current owner who commissioned a full restoration of the car with Rothwell Engineering in Cornwall in 2011.
All this work is fully documented within the cars file which includes invoices and photographs of the work carried out. Bills for the work total around £120,000 including the interior re-trim carried out by Hampton Coach Trimming in Wolverhampton. Plus, additional engine overhaul work carried out in 2013 totalling around £15,000.
Since this work was completed the car has covered less than 2,000 miles and has been garaged stored.
The most recent work carried out by Aston Engineering in Derby included a new starter solenoid and battery, so the car is ready to be used and enjoyed by the new owner.
Documentation is presented in lever arch file which contains hundreds of images of the restoration work carried out in 2011, MOT certificates dating back to 1973, British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Factory Record Certificate, Original 1963 Registration Book, Invoices for Restoration Work by Rothwell Engineering, Interior Re-Trim by Hampton Coach Trimming and further services invoices dating back to 1980.
All inspections are welcome and further details please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
History of the DB4 Series 5:
From September 1962, the DB4 received another round of changes designated these to be the final variant of the DB4 as 'Series 5'. Principally to provide more space and legroom for rear seat passengers.
Changes on the Series 5 over the Series 4 include rear light clusters that were slightly changed featuring individual indicator, stop/tail lamp and reversing lamp. The rear reflector was therefore re-located to the bumper. Also, the boot handle/number plate light was changed to a larger Hella type. Another change can be seen with the front indicators which are noticeably a little larger than previously.
In total, a mere 50 Aston Martin DB4 series 5 saloons were built during a 10-month period between September 1962 and June 1963.
