The 1959 Aston Martin DB MK III Drophead Coupe finished in red with a tan leather interior and a matching top was offered for sale at the 2006 RM Auction in Monterey, CA where it was estimated to sell for $125,000-$150,000. It is powered by a 2922-cc six-cylinder engine producing 180 horsepower. The engine is matted to a four-speed manual gearbox and sits atop a 99-inch wheelbase. Girling disc brakes can be found in the front and 'alfin' drums in the rear. It is a right-hand drive and a barn-find vehicle that has been treated to a comprehensive frame-off restoration since new.
At the conclusion of the auction, the vehicle had been sold for $154,000.Also photographed at :
