For many, the automobile is seen as merely a tool or an object of desire. For others, it is a lifestyle, an obsession and something that stirs us emotionally.

Blackbird Automotive was established as a multi-faceted organisation that celebrates all aspects of the motor car. Not only are we engaged in the commerce of automobiles old and new, we celebrate and showcase these amazing machines through hands-on work and through our various publications and channels.

From our Blackbird Heritage Motorworks facility to our publication, Blackbird Automotive Journal, and through our team comprising of experienced, life-long enthusiasts, we hope to share our philosophy on design, passion and the automobile as a medium to all of you around the world. Through building, maintaining, restoring, researching, writing, photographing, recording and sharing stories about these machines, we have developed a true appreciation of the mechanics, precision and engineering that gives credence to the automobile as a cultural icon.

Blackbird Automotive isn’t simply about the automobile as an object of desire. It is a pursuit of excellence and also a search for others who share the same design sensibility and philosophy as we do. I hope you will join us in this movement.

Welcome to Blackbird Automotive.

Aston Martin DB5

Blackbird Automotive is proud to offer for sale a beautifully maintained and presented example of the iconic Aston Martin DB5.

Chassis number #DB5/1786/R was delivered to its first owner in London on 26 September 1964 with the registration plate BLU 730B, the car subsequently found its way to Australia and then on to New Zealand. Four years ago, specialist restorer, Dr. Greg Beacham, situated in the North Island of New Zealand,


completed a thorough restoration and modernisation programme. This included the fitment of a four-speed automatic transmission, a reliable air conditioning system, fuel injection, a rack and pinion power assisted steering rack and premium sound system, all undertaken to ensure that she could be used more frequently in hot and congested environments. The vehicle was also expertly painted in British Racing Green


and the interior re-trimmed in Parchment with Dark Green piping.

The current owner made his purchase at the end of the restoration and shipped the car to Hong Kong. Here, she was licensed and has been maintained to the highest standards. The odometer shows less than 1,800Km since the restoration was completed and the vehicle is ready to drive.

Price on application.
