Selling A 1957 Aston Martin DB Mark III
The 1957 Aston Martin DB Mark III would officially replace the Aston Martin DB2/4 Mk II. It would feature a Tadek Marek-revised version of the Mk II Lagonda 2.9L six-cylinder engine that had grown so popular throughout the DB line. Although the “2/4” was dropped from the name, the 1957 DB Mark III was nearly identical to its predecessor, with just a few visual changes. Most noticeable, however, was the change to a DB3S-style front grille and a new instrument panel that mimicked the grille and placed the car’s gauges in front of the driver rather than in the middle of the dash. The addition of standard front disc brakes was also new for the line, yet the first 100 examples would miss this upgrade. In later years, many of the first 100 were updated with disc brakes. Owners would also enjoy a new hydraulically operated clutch and overdrive. Available in an attractive hatchback body first seen on the original DB2/4, the DB Mark III was also available as a Drophead Coupe and Fixed-Head Coupe. Little more than 550 examples of the DB Mark III were ever produced.
