1958 LHD Aston Martin DB MKIII (1958)




A fine example of a rare car, being one of just 83 built in left hand drive form. Handsome in design, well proportioned and looking right from all angles, with a purposeful appearance! The car is in nicely correct, sound condition, smart without being so pristine that it is uncomfortable to use. In fact, it is in an ideal condition to use and enjoy, running nicely, sounding suitably sporting, driving well, and has the great benefit of electric power steering and vacuum servo brakes, both of which really enhance the car's usability and practicality. Looking very handsome in ‘Sea green’, with light beige leather. Nicely patinated, to original specification, and was with one owner for fifty years from 1966 to 2016. Now UK registered. We are happy to help with export arrangements if required.

Chassis No. AM/300/3/145                Reg No. 708 XVX    

Snippets: James Bond’s Choice  
“James Bond flung the D.B. III through the last mile of straight and did a racing change down into third and then into second for the short hill before the inevitable traffic crawl through Rochester.  Leased in by the velvet claw of the front discs, the engine muttered its protest with a middle back-popple from the twin exhausts.  Bond had been offered the Aston Martin or a Jaguar 3.4. He had taken the DB III. Either of the cars would have suited his cover - well-to-do, rather adventurous young man with a taste for the good, fast things of life. But the DB III had the advantage of an up-to-date triptyque, an inconspicuous colour - battleship grey - and certain extras which might or might not come in handy. These included switches to alter the type and colour of Bond's front and rear lights if he was following or being followed at night, reinforced steel bumpers, fore and aft, in case he needed to ram, a long-barreled Colt .45 in a trick compartment under the driver's seat, a radio pick-up tuned to receive an apparatus called the Homer, and plenty of concealed space that would fox most Customs men."
