Description

The need to widen the appeal of the already successful DB2 resulted in the launch in October 1953 of the 2+2 DB2/4. Extensive revisions to the cars rear end arrangements made room for two occasional seats. Alternatively, the rear seat backs could be folded down, thus creating a load carrying platform that more than doubled the luggage space. The latter could be accessed via the 2/4’s opening rear door, a pioneering example of the now commonplace hatchback design.

Two years after the introduction of the mildly restyled DB2/4 MKII came the MKIII. Externally the most obvious change was the adoption of a DB3S style grille, establishing the ‘Hallmark” look of subsequent Aston Martins. The restyled nose gave the car a more imposing look, while the interior boasted a redesigned dashboard with the instruments grouped in a cowled panel ahead of the driver.

The 3.0 litre engine benefited from an extensive redesign by Tadek Marek and featured among other improvements, a stiffer block, stronger crankshaft and new cylinder head with bigger valves. A maximum output of 178bhp, when fitted with the optional twin exhaust pipes propelled the MKIII to a top speed in excess of 120 mph.

Unbeknown to many, the DB MKIII is another James Bond Aston Martin, appearing in Ian Fleming’s novel Goldfinger, though by the time the book made it to the screen the DB5 was the current model so that was used instead.

The Aston Martin MKIII Saloon offered here at Autostorico is finished in Black with Burgundy leather interior. This original RHD example was supplied new through Fred Wilmot Sports Cars in South Africa, Chassis No: AM/300/3/1482 was first registered to E Tomson, Tomson’s Sheet Metal Works of Prince Alfred Street, Durban in 1958.Remaining in South Africa until it was purchased by D Bron of the Hague, Holland in 2001. During his ownership  the car underwent an extensive restoration. In 2018   it was purchased by its current owner an avid Aston Martin fan. Since then the car has been in regular use and has been maintained to the highest possible standard. Factory fitted options include; Twin exhaust system and Overdrive.
