- Product Q&A
This DB5 convertible was restored in 1985 by Steel Wings to a very high show standard using as many of the original parts as possible. Since then, this car has remained with the current owner and has been stored in a climate controlled environment and seen minimal miles put on it. Although an older restoration, the DB5 Convertible has held up extremely well. This car is a dream to drive with 310 hp producing a spectacular exhaust note.
The engine was rebuilt by Steel Wings eight years ago and at that time the Weber conversion was done and the capacity was increased to 4.2 liter. The original carburetors, manifolds and air box come with the car.
A full original tool roll and jack come with the car and also an owner's handbook.
The car was originally purchased by Mr. Harold Dubilier of York Electronics Corporation in New York. The second owner was Mr. Robert Stockman of Danbury CT. The current owner acquired the DB5 Convertible from Mr. Stockman.
The build sheet for this car lists the interior trim as black with red piping and paint is listed as Fiesta red. Mr. Dubilier was interested in getting a DB5 Convertible but did not want a red car. This car was painted black at Aston's expense before Mr. Dubilier first took delivery.
