Selling A 1957 Aston Martin DB Mark III Drophead Coupe
Offered alongside the traditional saloon car or the era, the 1957 Aston Martin DB Mark III Drophead Coupe was a distinctly elegant convertible option that attracted quite a bit of attention – whether moving or standing still. Produced from 1957 to 1959, the Aston Martin DB Mark III Drophead Coupe was also the final convertible to be produced during Aston Martin’s Feltham-era, although coachwork was actually completed at their new facility in Newport Pagnell. When the DB Mark III was retired in 1959, the Drophead Coupe body style would also retire, yet it would be reintroduced a few years later with the DB4 range. While little more than 550 examples of the DB Mark III were produced, only 84 models would be in Drophead Coupe form. The majority of these models would be outfitted with Aston’s standard 2.9L six-cylinder engine for 162hp, yet approximately 14 examples were offered with the more powerful DBD engine that boasted triple SU carburetors for 180hp. Some historic records indicate that an additional two examples would feature the powerful DBB Special Series engine, which offered an impressive 195hp at the time. No matter what engine configuration your 1957 Aston Martin DB Mark III Drophead Coupe offers, the Alex Manos team would be delighted to learn more about your particular model.
