Aston Martin DB MKIII RHD- 1959 For Sale
|This advert viewed 1021 times|
|Right from the very start in 1913, Aston Martin has been very active in motor racing. After WW2, their involvement in competition grew, and soon, the marque's reputation for speed, style and dependability was established. A 5th and 6th place at 1950 Le Mans 24 Hours with DB2 Coupés and the development of the DBR's further embedded the racing spirit in Aston Martin's DNA.|
Originally delivered in Canada in 1958 with a Peony Red coachwork, this DB MkIII with chassis number AM 300/3/1668 returned to the UK in the early 1990s to be extensively campaigned by Chris & Mick Hudson. Purchased by racing driver and vintage car enthusiast David Brock-Jest in 2000, it was comprehensively restored over three years, with a clear focus on competition.
While its engine with number DBA/1153 has been fully rebuilt and upgraded, with forged pistons, racing conrods, a DB3S style crankshaft, triple SU's, an aluminium radiator, an electric water pump and a Kenlowe fan, its body has been developed to a lightweight specification with ventilated side and rear screens, and sprayed in an attractive British Racing Green with a distinctive bright yellow grill and accents. Futher improvements consist of a welded-in roll cage, racing seats, 5-point harnesses, Dunlop racing tires on reinforced wire wheels, a lightweight dry cell racing battery, a fuel cell, tow points, an oil catch and springs, making it fully compliant with eligibility regulations for the Aston Martin Championship Series and all other relevant racing regulations.
Even though this car has been restored with the racing track in mind, it can also comfortably be driven in normal traffic, easily keeping up with modern sports cars.
This rare Aston Martin DB MkIII offers a unique opportunity to own a well documented 1950s racing sports car with costly and vastly improved power to weight ratio - and stunning looks!
Price: 245.000 Euro
