1956 Aston Martin DB3S

Chassis number : DB3S/120

Share on:

The Aston Martin DB3S was a much more potent racer than the DB3 it replaced in 1953. The DB3S was first built as an open racing car before a fixed head coupe was designed by Frank Feeley for racing on high speed circuits. The design was tested in the wind tunnel facility at Brooklands before its first race at Silverstone but it failed to impress. Two coupes were entered at Le Mans in 1954, but due to massive instability they both crashed and the coupe racing project was abandoned. Three DB3S coupes were built later as road cars - this one kept by Aston Martin's owner David Brown and two others. DB3S/120 was used by David Brown as his personal road car before it was sold to amateur racer Mrs. Jean Bloxham.
