(1957 - 1959)

The final development of the Claude Hill chassis (as first seen in the Atom) appeared in the form of the Mark III (the 2/4 bit was dropped). The most noticeable change was the adoption of a DB3S style grille and a revised instrument binnacle (which echoed the style of the grille). The Mark III was also the first Aston Martin to be available with front disc brakes as standard during the production run. Also the engine had been substantially redesigned by Tadek Marek before he started work on the DB4 engine.

The standard 3 litre (2922cc, twin SU carbs) engine fitted to the Mark III was designated as the DBA version and produced 162 bhp @5500 rpm although with the fitting of optional twin exhausts, this could be raised to possibly 178 bhp. A special series engine using three twin choke Webers, twin exhausts and special camshafts, called the DBB version was able to produce 195 bhp. Just to add more choice, a DBD version was also available with three SU carbs and producing 180 bhp.

Without doubt, the DB Mark III is the best looking car of the DB2 line. The style of the sculptured single piece bonnet can be followed through to the AM V8.

Production of the Mark III lasted just a shade over two years and actually overlapped the DB4 by seven months. Production of all variants during this time was 551 cars. This example was photographed at the 40th Anniversary meeting at Donnington Park in 1999.

You would not be surprised to find out that the Mark III was the heaviest of the Feltham Cars and indeed it is by about 160kg. But as it is also the most powerful of the line, the extra weight is more than cancelled out and thus the Mark III is a popular racecar. But during the mid to late 1950’s AML were using the DBR1 in sportscar racing; the Mark III was never raced by the factory. This car was photographed in the paddock and on the track at the 1997 and 1998 AMOC race meetings at Donnington Park.

ASTON MARTIN DB MK III (1959)

Chassis Number: AM300/3/1825

Right Hand Drive: UK Supplied: Original Registration Number

One of 462 Produced: Concours Restored

Aston Martin produced the DB 2/4 Mark III (often referred to as simply the Mark III) between 1957 and 1959. It was an evolution of the DB2/4 Mk II and retained the earlier car’s W.O. Bentley-designed, Lagonda 2.9L straight-6 engine, redesigned by Tadek Marek. Other later production features to the Mk111 included the adoption of a DB3S style grille and a revised instrument binnacle (which echoed the style of the grille).The car was also the first Aston Martin to be available with front disc brakes as standard. The standard DBA engine model with twin SU carburettors produced 162hp, though an optional dual-exhaust system (a claimed 16 bhp increase) raised this to a reputed 178hp as fitted to this car. Thus equipped, the car could reach 60 mph in 9.3 seconds and hit 120 mph.

We are delighted to offer this concours prepared DB 2/4 Mk III whose first keeper, Mr. Brown, owned from new through to 1979 as identified in the original ‘buff’ log book. Stored from 1979 through to 2008, the third registered keeper, whose details are recorded in the latest current V5 registration document, embarked on a total rebuild of the car by Post Vintage. This involved a body off restoration including a full engine rebuild including gearbox and axle. Completed in 2013 at a total cost of £130,000, it is believed the car has covered a mere 1800 miles since.

Presented today in Gunmetal Grey with red hide, this concours DB MK III is probably the finest example on sale and is accompanied with the following:

  • 2 original ‘Buff’ logbooks
  • Various invoices and correspondence dating back to 1960
  • Factory correspondence
  • Pictorial record of restoration
  • Drivers instruction book
  • Original factory tools
