1958 Aston Martin DB Mk III for complete restoration; This is a perfect opportunity to acquire an original Aston Martin DB Mk III requiring a complete restoration. This car has not been on the road for the past 30 years and possibly longer. It has been in its current ownership for the past 20 years and known to have been stored for at least 10 years prior to the present owners acquisition of the car. The present owner began a restoration but due to personal reasons he has decided to sell. All of the paintwork has been carefully stripped down to bare aluminium, all glass has been removed and carefully stored along with all of the interior of the car. Whilst the engine has not been rebuilt, it starts freely and appears to hold very good oil pressure. The fuel tank and sender unit have been properly restored and are ready for use. The front of the bonnet where aluminium meets steel has considerable corrosion and a quotation is already in place for this work to be done. Only 495 MkIII Coupes were everbuilt making this a comparatively rare Aston. Having restored a number of this model over many years, we consider that this will be a relatively easy and straightforward proposition that will be financially rewarding upon completion. Please enquire for more details. 130,000

Background:; The final refinement of the cars based on Claude Hill's design and the Lagonda six-cylinder twin overhead camshaft engine, is the DB Mark III. Launched in March 1957 at the Geneva Motor Show, it was available for export only until the London Motor Show in October of the same year. The model remained in production for about nine months after the DB4 was introduced. Of the 550 (approximately) cars produce over two thirds were exported to the U.S.A. The chassis specification was very similar to the DB2/4 MkII. An option of Girling front disc brakes was available from the start of production but became a standard fitting after the first 100 cars were produced. Tadek Marek, the gifted engineer who had recently joined Aston Martin and would go on to design the next generation 6-cylinder engines and then the V8, virtually re-designed the 3.0 litre engine. This included a new block (with top seating Liners), a stiffer crankcase, a new crankshaft, oil pump and timing chain. Performance wasequally improved by re-designing the induction and exhaust manifolds, whilst the ports are based on the DB3S engine, with larger valves and high lift camshafts. The majority of cars were fitted with the DBA engine, which was claimed to produce 162 b.h.p. at 5500 r.p.m., breathing though twin SU carburettors. A few (47) cars were supplied with the uprated DBD specification engine with triple SU carburettors giving an advertised 180 bhp. In appearance, the Mark III can be distinguished from the MkII at the front by the elegant shaped radiator opening adopted from the DB3S and consequently compound curves of the front of the bonnet, which can be traced on all subsequent models including the V8. And from the rear by the cathedral rear lights which give the car a much cleaner appearance. Opening rear quarter light windows are also fitted. Internally, the facia and instrument panel are completely different, the latter remaining in use up to the DB6 MkII. The standard transmission remained the same as theMkII, with overdrive as an option. The Mark III is nearly 9' longer than the DB2 and weighs about 350 lb more, which is an increase of about 15%. However, more than 50% more power is available from the standard DBA, compared to the original LB6B engine. It was described by The Autocar (October 4th 1957), who recorded: 9.3 sec 0-60 m.p.h., 31.0 sec 0-100 m.p.h., 17.4 sec over a standing quarter mile and a maximum speed of 120 m.p.h. Summary:; The DB Mark III is recognised as the ultimate iteration of David Brown's original vision and thrust for Le Mans glory. It has the dash that went on to grace the DB4 and the lan of a great sports car. All of this underpinned by an excellence of restoration that has to be seen to be appreciated - you could go out and try to find your own car to restore, wait a few years and spend a lot of money in the interim - or you could come and drive away what is undoubtedly the best Aston Martin DB Mark III on the market today. Vehicle History; A copy of the original buildsheet for the car notes her delivery in February 1958 to its first owner, Robert Allison of Canterbury in Kent. The same document notes the names and addresses of four subsequent keepers - Edmund Baillie of Crowborough, Titchmarsh & Goodwin of Ipswich in Suffolk, Ronal Green of Croydon in Surrey and Terence Pickthall of the same town. When the current owner acquired the car in 2006, it was from a Barry Halton of Bedford who had, in turn acquired the car from a Peter Avis. In the customer's own words:; 'I first spotted the car in an advert in the AMOC Magazine in the summer of 2006 after a few telephone conversations, I went to see the car and it looked very forlorn sitting on Barry's drive. Originally, he had planned to convert it to a Drophead but had been persuaded against such an idea but had also received an ultimatum from his wife to remove the car from the drive. He later bought a Drophead Mark III to complement the DB4 that he already owned.'; 'During my visit to see the car, everythingseemed in order, the chassis was straight but there was one minor problem - the top of the engine was in wine cases! The original cylinder head was cracked and a replacement had been found to have the wrong stud arrangement and would not fir. Wren eventually sourced a three carb head, which has now replaced the original.'; 'I made calls to a number of established restoration firms who suggested I sell the car for parts but eventually made contact with Wren in the guise of Steve and Barry, who were ready to have a good look at the car. I was in no hurry and they set the wheels in motion and as well as the basics of restoration made modifications - the three carb head, new window mechanisms, the addition of overdrive in 3rd & 4th, an additional cooling fan, leather upholstery, inertia reel belts, steel wire wheels, battery conditioner and much more.'; 'The car arrived back with me after almost exactly 7 years with Wren, since then I have done barely 500 miles in it - regular runs around the Suffolklanes to keep everything in tip top order. It has been the star at a few local Suffolk Shows and has performed admirably at a couple of weddings and with that mileage has required no service work apart from fuel flow adjustments carried out by my local garage.'; 'Due to time pressures, I really don't use the car enough and this great British sportscar should be with someone who will make more use of this fantastic classic.'; Speaking to Wren Classics, who undertook the nut and bolt restoration of the car they report that there was an extra dimension to that commissioning insofar as they were given a much freer scope than normal with the words 'If you think it's a good idea - do it.'; There is a full photographic record of that work as well as a carefully recorded record of each and every invoice. In our summary, we have noted the labour recorded on each invoice but each invoice contains the list of parts - and when we describe this as a nut and bolt restoration, that is a very literal statement andthe list too long to record here. Suffice to say that if you actually add up the sum of those invoices, you reach 231,937.87. Axle - rebuilt, gearbox - rebuilt, engine - rebuilt and ideas like heated front and rear screens that add unseen practicality to ownership - it was a good idea, so they did it. But even that knowledge does not prepare you for the detail of this car's restoration and the pride taken in its restoration - when you look at the beautifully trimmed door cards, you see original window winders. What you do not see are the electric window motors operated by those same window winders acting as switches - and of course the driver can operate the passenger window remotely. Everywhere you turn, that attention to detail shines through and means that the next owner will have the pleasure of enjoying a period masterpiece with the convenience of their everyday car.

Summary; The Aston Martin DB Mark III is the final and best iteration of the David Brown designs that drove his Le Mans ambitions in the 1950's. Remarkably modern in its concepts, the Mark III is a real enthusiasts car especially as it carries the marque heritage but not the premium pricing of her later cousins. With provenance, ownership history and a wonderfully patinated condition, this is a car just waiting for the investment of an enthusiast to continue the story. Vehicle History; This lovely car's history folder contains not only a copy of the original build sheetbut also the original folding log book. The Build Sheet shows that the supplying dealer was HWM of Walton on Thames and both documents concur that the original purchaser of the car was William Walter Andrews of Burgess Hill. Then delightfully the old log book is supported by another document, yellowed with age, that is a sales notification from Cheam Motor and Engineering Company in Surrey noting the sale of the car to its second owner, a resident in Cheam for the grand sum of 1,725 and the acceptance of a Sunbeam Rapier in exchange for 525. It is appropriate to maintain an anonymity of that owner - a fact that will be appreciated as the history unfolds. The car remained with the family until the owner's sad demise and was sold in 1978 to a Mr I Mills of Maidstone in Kent. The car remained with him until July 1986 when it was sold to Mr Tim Grant of Faversham who in turn sold the car to a Ronald Coleman of Dorchester. When reading through the service history of the car, it can be noted that each ofthese owners, in turn, maintained the car, restored her bodily and, it appears regularly rebuilt the engine! Whichever way, the condition was maintained and toward the end of his ownership, Mr Coleman consigned the car for sale to the Unicorn Motor Company in Dorset. It was in a copy of the Automobile magazine in October 2002 that an enthusiastic collector of old English cars spotted Unicorn's advert and recognised the Father's old Aston Martin!; Buying the car has reunited her with that original family who first owned and cherished her in 1961 bringing a long a virtuous history full circle - sharing her garage with amongst other cars a pre-war Austin Hearse, she has been enthusiastically maintained but with expert early overhaul by marque specialists RS Williams. A regular at AMOC outings and meetings, this great example of Feltham Aston Martin engineering is ageing gracefully but is ready for a new enthusiast to add the next chapter of her history
