This DB5 Vantage Convertible was purchased at the Bonhams annual Collectors’ Motor Cars auction at Goodwood Festival of Speed on the 2nd July 2010. This is a very rare Aston Martin being only 1 of 3 ever built with a vantage engine.
Once delivered to the Post Vintage workshop it was proven that looks can sometimes be deceiving.
Full appraisal of the car revealed the need to make good of previous repairs that were carried out to a poor standard. Therefore the only way to do the job correctly was to undertake a full body off rebuild. It was therefore decided that quality is paramount and a rebuild must be undertaken to the highest standard.
The gallery pictures show the car being totally stripped to a bare chassis with the body being removed before being bead blasted ready for work to be carried out on the chassis and body frame.
