This 1959 DB MkIII is shown with a 1957 DB 2/4 MkII, which both have been in the family since the 1960's. The MkIII was purchased in 1964 for $2,500.00, and was a daily driver by my dad, Russell P. Taft Esq. It is a matching numbers car, which has been maintained, and never fully restored. (We fix what breaks, or looks bad.) It sat disused for 30 years, and my siblings and I brought the car back to life, in time for dad to drive it, before losing his eyesight at 89 years old. He had about 9 months of "stick time" after it was running again. The 007 license plate is a nice coincidence, and is the original plate from the 1960s. The triple carbs are factory original for the DBD motor. This car is NOT a trailer queen, and is driven regularly to car shows, special events and has been included in a music video.
