(previously listed as unknown DB MkIII #2)

This French 1957 DB2/4 MkIII appeared in January 2009 on Post War section of PreWarCars, a site to be recommended.
Please note I wrote DB2/4 MkIII and not DB MkIII.
For further information, have a look at this page on my site.



Here is a car I had tracked on several sites during three months! A friend who thought of buying it asked me to wait. Eventually he didn't and I am not sure this car was finally sold!!!
On the photos I found it quite nice but it seems it's not that much!

Furthermore, I was told that the biggest problem was it doesn't match the build sheet...



At first the car appeared on PostWarClassic at the end of July 2010. Here is the PDF: ... and the 9 photos .

Early August, on Classic  with 6 photos .

Early September, it was on eBay ... with 29 photos!  .

At the same time on Gullwing Motor Cars site  with the same photos.


Ex Mrs Daisy Brown. Please have a look at my page about cars used by David Brown and his family.
According to some Aston specialists, this could "only" be a demonstrator, not an ex Mrs Brown car.

This rare DB MkIII DHC will be sold by
Barons on 7 September 2010.
