Classic Aston Martin with Modern Conveniences

Classic British cars are great, but upgraded classic cars are even better. Take a fully restored 1965 Aston Martin DB5 coupe, and add A/C, power steering, and other modern conveniences and the result is something I’d love to take on the road. Someone at Russo and Steele’s upcoming Montereyauction could do exactly that.

Russo and Steele describe it as silver birch with blue leather interior and carpeting. It comes with a 5-speed manual transmission with an uprated gearbox, and a 4.0 litre six-cylinder engine under the hood. It is right hand drive, but that only adds to the cool factor. The only thing that would make it better was if it was a convertible.
