1965 Aston Martin DB5
Chassis Number: DB5/2067/R
DB5/2067/R once appeared within the popular US automotive magazine “Car and Driver” within the “Never-Gonna-Happen Projects” feature. The tongue-in-cheek feature stated that it had been sat untouched for 40 years with the same owner. However, the DB5 returned to the UK in 2019 and ROE were commissioned to ensure this DB5 remained on the road for years to come. The revival and restoration journey began in 2019 and ended in the results you see before you.
Following its completion in 2021, DB5/2067/R went on to pick up two awards within major concours competitions. These were at the AMOC Autumn Concours 2021 and the Salon Privé Concours d'Elegance 2021. Quite the story given the car’s humble beginnings.
The photos below are the same ones used in a photobook designed by ROE for the client. The book's cover was carefully crafted from the same black (VM8500) Connolly Vaumol leather hide as was used for the car’s interior. The purpose is to tell the story of the Aston’s restorative journey.
By providing you with the photos from within the album we are inviting you to also view the exhaustive works carried out to bring DB5/2067/R back to life.
