Another barnfind DB Aston coming up for grabs


You wait ages for a desirable barnfind Aston and then two come along at once...

After news of the Hampshire DB4 discovery earlier this week, Bonhams has revealed it is to auction a 1964 Aston Martin DB5 that has been off the road since the early 1980s.

The car will go under the hammer at the company's specialist Aston Martin and Lagonda sale on 18 May.

Thanks to being sub-50,000 miles and the current bidding frenzy for DB5s, the car – which cost its last buyer just £1500 – is expected to raise 100 times that at Newport Pagnell.

David Ettridge bought the car in 1972, but it was last MoTd in 1977 and he laid it up at the end of the decade.
Bonhams' group motoring director James Knight said: “It requires restoration in the true sense of the word, restoring existing original components as opposed to replacing them."



Place your bets now - I reckon it will top £200k...



In my opinion is should easily make £300,000 +.Bonhams sold a restoration DB5 in 2011 for £282,000 which has an estimate of £50k - £60k !!!
