This 1965 Aston Martin DB5 Vantage was first owned by 60’s pop star Gerry Marsden of Gerry and the Pacemakers, paid for with the revenue from their classic hit single ‘Ferry Cross The Mersey’. It has recently been fully restored by the current owner and even though only 65 were built, this vehicle’s provenance makes it a very special car.
In addition to a full mechanical restoration the car has had its period Motorola stereo system converted to digital, including a DAB radio, while keeping its original 1960s appearance. And Van Damme Blue Series Studio Grade was the speaker cable of choice.
The Aston Martin DB5 was the car driven by Sean Connery as James Bond in 1964’s Goldfinger. The higher performance DB5 Vantage was introduced later the same year, and featured three Weber twin-choke 45DCOE side-draft carburettors and revised camshaft profiles for even more engine power.
