This stunning DB3s recreation was completed by Bill Monk (W.A.M) in 2015. It has covered approximately 2729 Miles since it was ready for the road and is the last of only 11 of these wonderful celebrations of the DB3S by Bill Monk and the only one to recreate the style of het later DB3S ‘works’ cars. Powered by a 3.5 litre straight six BMW engine, with triple Weber 40 DCOE twin-chock, side-draught carburettors it has been fully set up on a rolling road by Janspeed of Salisbury recording a very healthy 182 BHP. Bill Monk previously owned two original Aston Martin DB3S. Inspired by his ownership of these legendary motor cars, Bill decides to produce DB3S recreations under the name WAM (Willian Anthony Monk) using a mould taken from one of the original cars and his extensive experience of restoring and working on Aston Martins.
Finished in Aston Martin Racing green with knock-off wire wheels, chrome spinners and polished stainless-steel side exhaust pipes. This DB3S recreation sounds as good as 5-series engine was specifically chosen, as opposed to a Jaguar straight six-engine, as the BMW input provides very similar power to the original DB3S engine, sounds very similar and the exhaust exits on the correct side, unlike the straight-six Jaguar engine. The majority of the running gear is jaguar. This includes the front suspension (double wishbones and uprights with aftermarket coil spring damper units), the rear suspension (Jaguar lower wishbones, driveshafts and uprights) and with jaguar servo-assisted disc brakes fitted at all corners. Exceptional attention to detail has been given to the interior, including a period correct style dashboard and steering wheel, along with period style seats in green leather and matching green carpet.
The previous owner spent around £2000 on the fitting of TRS 4-point harnesses to both passenger and driver’s seat, a map reading light, a le mans-style ‘running’ light to illuminate the number roundel, a GB badge on the rear and a locking fuel cap.
The car is Totally practical, with half and full tonneau covers and a spare wheel, this superb recreation will offer its new owner the chance to enjoy and experience the sights and sounds of the legendary DB3S for a fraction of the cost of the genuine article.
