Description

A W.A.M Bill Monk replica of an Aston Martin DB3SFitted with a 3.5-litre BMW straight-six engine on Weber 40 DCOE twin-choke side-draught carburettorsOnly covered 2,729 miles since being completed in 2015Supplied with half & full tonneau covers a fabulous replica of a legendary carThis stunning DB3S recreation was completed by Bill Monk (W.A.M) in 2015. It has covered approximately 2,729miles since it was ready for the road and is the last of only eleven of these wonderful celebrations of the DB3S by Bill Monk and the only one to recreate the style of the later DB3S 'Works' cars. Powered by a 3.5-litre straight six BMW engine, with triple Weber 40 DCOE twin-choke, side-draught carburettors it has been fully set up on a rolling road by Janspeed of Salisbury recording a very healthy 182bhp. Bill Monk previously owned two original Aston Martin DB3S', chassis number 10, an ex-Le Mans car, and chassis number 120, one of only 3 DB3S coups ever build. Inspired by his ownership of these legendary motor cars, Bill decided to produce DB3S recreations under the name WAM (William 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 it looks, with equally impressive performance. The BMW 5-series engine was specifically chosen, as opposed to a Jaguar straight-six engine, as the BMW unit 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.Our vendor has covered approximately 2,500 miles in his two years of ownership and he has sent the car to Aston Martin Dorset and marque specialists D.Wood Motorsport of Wimbourne for a service and sundry work. He has spent around 2,000, including the fitting of TRS 4-point harnesses to both passenger and drivers 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.Prior to our vendors ownership this car was test driven by a previous owner of the original DB3S chassis number 11, who was incredibly impressed by Bill Monk's work. 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.
