The DB Mk III is the last development
and best car of the DB 2-4 range.
With many features transferred from Aston Martins
successful DB3 and DB3S sports racing cars, the specification and
performance of the Mk III was considered outstanding in the late
As with all early Aston Martins, the Mk III is a hand built car
of very high quality, and has an inherent sporting nature, derived
from the David Brown Aston racing program. Our car, registered in
1958 is somewhat special, in that it was fitted with a triple 35
DCOE Webber carb, 200hp DBB engine, commissioned by the then Scotland
based owner, and prepared by the Aston factory in 1965, for use
in period rallying.
With this rather fast engine specification, a DB4 GT disc brake
rear axle, fitted around the same time, a factory overdrive gearbox,
folding two plus two rear seating with a ‘hatchback’
rear door and period rally instruments, producing a wonderful cockpit
ambience, this DB Mk III is eminently suitable for classic tours
or historic regularity rallying.
