Aston Martin DB MkIII could make £300,000 at auction

Published 25 September 2014

A 1958 Aston Martin DB MkIII saloon could make £300,000 when it goes under the hammer next month.

The car, which is for sale at H&H’s October sale on 8 October, has been completely restored and prepared for club racing.

Last year it was campaigned in the Fordwater Trophy at the Goodwood Revival meeting and achieved a class win in the Aston Martin Owners’ Club autumn concours event at Broughton Castle.

Finished in Tourmaline Blue with a black hide interior and black Wilton carpet, it comes with an overdrive gearbox.

The engine has been built by Chris Adams of Four Ashes Garage and features a balanced steel crankshaft, Carrillo connecting rods, and aluminium cylinder head fed by a trio of Weber carburettors.

Although set up for club racing, it is understood to be totally usable on the road and therefore ideal for classic rallies and continental tours.
