Aston Martin DB MKIII, chassis number AM/300/3/1464, Reg. UXW 387, is a right-hand drive model from 28/03/1958. The Mark III was the final evolution of the DB2 Series using the Bentley/Watson Lagonda 2,922 ltr. straight-six engine.
Me and my son are Aston Martin enthusiasts and we bought this DB MKIII in 2019 because in our eyes it is the cradle of the evolution of the DB-Models.
Our DB MKIII which has deployed from 1983 to 2003 as a very successful racing car of a British family. It reached constant the podium and 1. places e.g. in Silverstone, Brands Hatch or Goodwood Sprint (wildcard-picture).
In 2004 the DB MKIII joined the St. Georges Day Windsor Parade before Her Majesty, The Queen. J
After the racing period the DB MKIII has been continuously rebuilt to the former road car. The body is in a very good condition without corrosion.
Now, our aim is to get the car in a completely excellent restored condition and bring it back to its historic beginning.
So we already restored e.g. all aggregates in the engine bay and we changed racing to historic parts e.g. the wheels and the steering wheel.
The interior is mainly renewed. We also improve the electric system to a better and higher level.
The racing engine, suspension and power train have been the soul of the car for a long period and have to be preserved!
So there will be no changes.
Our DB MKIII is fitted with three-twin-choke Weber 45 DCOE carburettors like the legendary DBC racing engine. The camshafts are a modified prototype DB3S, the valves are oversized and a special Farndon crankshaft has been built in. All this gives an incredibly torque curve and 220 bhp+.
The only one to be said: power, beauty and soul
In 2020 we found the missing history of our car thanks to AMHT.
