Rumble AN ASTON Martin that was found in ‘barn find’ condition has been renovated - and is now worth £400,000. Nigel Woodward, the Managing Director at Classic Motorcars in Bridgnorth, UK bought the Aston Martin DB Mark III at an auction in 2015. Nigel told Ridiculous Rides: “So the car bought at an auction for way over its estimate at the time, which was £30,000-£40,000, and actually sold for a little over £100,000." The team shortly realised the car was in such bad condition that they had to make a whole new body for it. But after 4,500 hours of hard work, the classic car is back to its original condition. Nigel said: “We are always quite sad to see long term projects leave the business. The reason we do this is so that the owner can have something that they can enjoy. And when we deliver this to the owner, it will be just as though the car has been delivered to him new - back in the late 1950s by Aston Martin.”
