Ex-Robert Plant Aston Martin DB5 for sale
The Led Zeppelin frontman's Aston Martin DB5 is currently for sale with renowned marque specialist Nicholas Mee & Co
There is no questioning the style and credentials boasted by the ultimate incarnation of David Brown’s Aston Martin DB-series. From Bond to Peter Sellers and Paul McCartney, it takes only mild justification to validate the classic vehicle’s status as ‘the most famous car in the world’. The DB5 has become an icon of 20th century pop culture, drawing huge crowds and admiration from any venue its celebrated appeal graces.
The same can be said of Led Zeppelin lead singer and lyricist Robert Plant, penning rock anthems including the legendary Stairway to Heaven, claiming heavy metal magazine Hit Parader’s ‘Greatest Metal Vocalist of All Time’ and Planet Rock’s ‘Greatest Voice in Rock’ – among dozens of other titles.
Pairing the two together would create something of unquestionable value, with Nicolas Mee proudly presenting Plant’s personal DB5 for sale.
Chassis number 1744/R, original built in 1965, found its way into Robert Plant’s ownership in the early 1970s. Holding ownership when living in the West Midlands until 1986, the Aston was sold to father and son collectors, shortly thereafter entrusted to Aston Martin agents Chapman Spooner. Restored to its current and exemplary condition, the car entered a number of Aston Martin Owners Club and local concours events during the 1980s.
Remaining in this ownership until 2008, when it was then purchased by the current owner from Nicholas Mee & Co, the DB5 was used sparingly and has been in controlled storage ever since. Regular servicing has been undertaken by respected Aston Martin specialists and it is now back with Nicholas Mee & Co to be sold.
Holding only slight signs of use, this iconic vehicle owned by one of the biggest icons in rock music remains mechanically strong. But you’ll need to be quick – priced competitively it won’t be long before its gone, gone, gone. Get your Kashmir out to secure an automotive legend via the AutoClassics classified advert.
