Available from 1957 to 1959, the Aston Martin DB Mark III Drophead Coupe was the final convertible example of the Feltham-era Aston Martins. With exceptionally elegant coachwork by Tickford in Newport Pagnell, the open-top Drophead Coupe was not only powerful, but also stylish and commanded quite a bit of attention during its time. In 1959, at the end of DB Mark III production, the Drophead Coupe would be retired from the range and it would be more than two years before Aston Martin would offer a soft-top car in the form of the DB4. If you’re thinking about buying a 1958 Aston Martin DB Mark III Drophead Coupe, you may have quite the time finding one. Of the 552 DB Mark III models produced, only 84 were Drophead Coupes. While it is difficult to estimate how many of these models remain in existence today, rest assured knowing they are highly sought-after in today’s classic car market despite condition. During this era, Aston offered several engine configurations that varied in output. The DBD engine with triple SU carburetors offered 180hp (approximately 14 Drophead Coupe examples were equipped this way), while the DBB Special Series engine offered 195hp. Just two Drophead Coupes were said to be outfitted with the DBB Special Series engine. As such, DB Mark III Drophead Coupes with engine upgrades are highly desirable today.
