The ultimate and most highly refined variant of the successful Aston Martin DB2/4, the Mark III was introduced in March 1957 and produced through July 1959 in both fixed and drophead coupé form.
- Factory left-hand-drive, matching-numbers example
- One of the first 100 produced
- Delivered new to the U.S.
New to Aston Martin, engineer Tadek Marek was given the task of thoroughly revising the six-cylinder engine – increasing output substantially. Front disc brakes supplemented Alfin rear drum brakes, with this upgrade being optional on the first 100 Mk IIIs, and this car is equipped as such. Styling and body fittings were updated, most notably with a new DB3S-style grille opening. This style grille would become a trademark of Aston Martin models through the present day. For many, the Mk III was the most beautiful road-going Aston Martin yet.
Offered here is one of the earlier Mk IIIs, originally delivered to Mrs M.S. Collier of San Francisco, California, and is one of just 83 original factory left-hand-drive vehicles. While its early history is not known this Mk III does retain its original engine, which was restored in 2014 by a noted French specialist and invoices are on file. Originally ordered in Moonbeam Grey, the saloon now presents beautifully in the classic colour combination of British Racing Green over black leather.
This Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk III is perfect for an owner looking for a sports car eligible for numerous events.
