THE BEATLES TICKET TO RIDE

McCartney's Aston Martin is in pole position at Bond Street

The Bond Street sale will see not one, but two, motor cars previously owned by members of the Beatles go under the hammer. Resplendent in the 'Bond' colour scheme of Silver Birch with red interior, this 1964 Aston Martin DB5 was purchased by Sir Paul McCartney shortly after the band completed the lming of A Hard Day's Night. The licence plate, '64 MAC', leaves little doubt as to the original owner. Then, in 1967, Brian Epstein decided that British icons deserved a British icon, and gave each of the Beatles a Mini Cooper. Taking a practical approach, Ringo modi ed his car so as to allow him to get his drum kit into the boot. The 1966 Mini Cooper 'S' Radford Conversion will also be offered in December.
