Selling A 1958 Aston Martin DB Mark III
First launched in 1957 as the replacement for the Aston Martin DB2/4 Mark II, the Aston Martin DB Mark III would be the third and final offering of the widely popular DB2 Aston Martin range. Offered for just two short years, the DB Mark III is often confused with the Aston Martin DB3 racing car of the early 1950s thanks to a similar name. Many Aston Martin enthusiasts believe that the DB Mark III should have been the “DB2/4 Mark III,” in better keeping with the model’s previous names, but Aston Martin decided otherwise. Nevertheless, the 1958 Aston Martin DB Mark III is an excellent example of the quality of workmanship, performance and design that was coming from the British manufacturer at the time. It would be faster, offer better road holding, and would be better looking than ever. On the exterior, the DB Mark III would now boast a DB3-style front grille and slightly revised rear fenders that incorporated Hawk taillights. Inside the car, a new instrument panel would move the gauges from the middle of the car to directly ahead of the driver; it would also mimic the shape of the grille. Performance-wise, the 1958 Aston Martin DB Mark III would see the addition of standard disc brakes and a horsepower increase to 162hp. Several other engine upgrades were available, including a twin exhaust and dual SU carburetor upgrade that could boost the standard engine to 178hp.
