Aston Martin Series-3 Mark II 2/4 seater

Year of production 1934 - 1935

Model: Series-3 (1934 - 1935)

(Short Chassis, 1934 - 1935)

Unveiled at the 1934 Motor Show, the Mark II was in effect an improved Le Mans model. The 1½ litre engine could now produce 73bhp, the chassis was somewhat stiffer and the road holding was also improved. Again two chassis lengths were available, long for saloons, tourers and drophead coupes, short for 2 and 2/4 seater sports cars. The short chassis from the Mark II together with a modified engine and lightweight 2 seater body was used as Team cars and ultimately became the Ulster.

The distinctive and easily identifiable feature of the Mark II are the thermostatically controlled radiator shutters. Cycle type front winds were retained which still turned with the steering. The folded hood was again moved outside the body – not so good looking perhaps but it was more roomy for the rear seat passengers.

The 2/4 seater based on the shorter 8’7” chassis was the most successful and best selling of the 1.5 litre cars with 61 completed over a period a little under two years.
