Aston Martin DB5 Vantage Specification

Loving cars as we do you cannot imagine the buzz here when an iconic car such as an Aston Martin DB5 arrives, we all go to pieces!
IMPORTANT: Please note the original engine block is supplied with this car!
If you want to actually drive a DB5 and enjoy it for all it’s glory then please stay with me.
This DB5 was registered in the UK in August 1965 and originally finished in Goodwood Green over Fawn Leather. As you can see she is now the familiar Silver Birch with classic Black leather. The history file with this car is brilliant, well detailed and all the important information is there. There is too much to list but in brief:
The paper work dates back to the 80’s and is comprehensive particularly from the 90’s.
Lots of invoices from Aston Engineering in the 90’s
Newlands Motors carried out major works in the late 90’s including building a new engine from a reconditioned block of the correct period from another DB5.  The engine was built to Vantage Spec and is in fine working order. PLEASE NOTE: The original engine block is supplied with the car!
Stratton Motor company in the early 2000’s and then Desmond J Smail from 2005 until 2020.
There is a service invoice from DJS every year, the file is thick and full of information about maintenance and repair work.
I have the original hand book with the cars first ever tax disc tucked neatly in the front cover. A comprehensive file full of MOT’s from the 80’s onwards until present day.
The condition:
This car has been maintained extremely well over the years, the history file is really good. The underneath of the car is fantastic there has been lots of works done o the chassis and sills over the years, it’s spot on. The engine is presented very well and the engine bay isn’t too bad at all. The interior as you have seen is worn but not too far gone that it couldn’t be repaired.
The paint work requires re finishing.
This is a really good usable car. You could drive anywhere in Europe and not care for stone chips. To restore the car requires little in terms of metalwork. It would be a fast and easy car to restore. If this is something of interest to you please ask us about the DB5 we are currently restoring. We are happy to guide you with this car too.

As a new customer attention and service from all members of the team for the fitting of cruise control to our V8... Vantage was helpful friendly and welcoming. We will certainly be returning for further service work and we have no hesitation in recommending to more

Recently purchased a beautiful DB9 from McGurk’s and again, as per my previous experience when I purchased a Vantage... from them in 2018, everything was done to make the car exceed my expectations. In all my dealings with the team at McGurk’s which include purchase, part exchange, warranty work and servicing I have found them honest, fair and very keen to ensure that you enjoy your Aston. A breath of fresh air as well as a friend in this increasingly challenging market place.Also they seem to be able to continually source excellent cars!read more

I purchased my car from McGurk - I highly recommend them to anyone looking to purchase an Aston Martin. Their stock is... immaculately presented and they have a wide selection of carefully chosen cars across the price range. Special thanks to John, Rob and his team for everything. Rob made time to show me a car over a weekend at a convenient time for myself - I never felt rushed or any pressure, and he patiently showed me the car I was interested in, as well as explaining the various aspects of ownership. I took delivery of the car and it was perfect. Their customer service and attention to detail are to be commended. If you are looking to buy an Aston Martin take the time to give them a call, you won't be more

I cannot fault the service provided by Lloyd, Neil and other members of the McGurk team. Every visit to them is an... enjoyable experience and they have certainly gone above and beyond to help with a recent issue with my DB7. Firstly, my car was recovered and not only fixed swiftly, but also for a very reasonable price. Then, on the day I was due to pick her up, for unexpected reasons I was not able to return her to my own garage. Without missing a beat, Lloyd arranged for my car to be temporarily housed in a local bespoke storage facility and even drove it there himself.Superb. Simply outstanding customer service!read more

From purchase of my AMV8 Roadster last year with Matt to meeting all the team at Mcgurks, the experience was... fantastic.I was so impressed with their facilities I drove 150 miles to have my first service, when the main dealer is 10 miles away from my home. Lloyd provided an excellent service with full explanation of what would be done and details of the full health check carried out.Your in safe hands when using Mcgurks for all your Aston Martin more

As a relatively new AM owner these guys have been great. Friendly and welcoming, the service I’ve received has been top... drawer. Communication is good, with everything explained in appropriate detail and a no pressure attitude to any additional work. I definitely recommend using more

Used McGurk for the first time, rather than a Ferrari main dealer and was very impressed both with the service level... and technical competence. I would highly recommend for a no-nonsense, straight forward to deal with more
