Description

This Aston Martin DB2/4 MKIII with chassis number AM300/3/1793 is build at the 19th of February 1959 and came out of the factory at the 22nd of April 1959.  first registered at the 27th of may 1959. The car is delivered by Aston Martin dealer Brooklands of Bond Street towards Dr William Fullerton who lived in Dorset in those days.



The new price of the car was £ 1.749 Sterling which included a purchase tax of £ 885,- Sterling, so even in those years the government did not seem to be happy if people purchases expensive cars.



The Aston Martin was ordered in Peony red with a black leather interior. As options, the car came with a twin exhaust system (which increased the amount of horsepowers as well as with a instruction book and more importantly and very rare, a so-called DBD engine.



During 1958, some engine modifications began to trickle down from the succusful Aston Martin racing programme. As well as the standard DBA engine, and the optional twin exhaust system, a DBB series was announced which had triple Weber carburettors. Soon after this introduction, the DBD engine was announced, the DBD engine was similair to the DBB engine but had the triple SU carburettors and realized an output of 180bhp.

The DBD engine is only fitted to 47 cars which makes this example which is completely matching extremely rare!

The further condition of the Aston Martin is very nice. The car has been completely resprayed in Holland in it’s original colour. The car drives superb and does not need any attention.
