FAMILY HISTORY: This Aston has been in the hands of two families since new: the McConnell / Wallis family of Montreal and Milwaukee, & the Nashold family of Raleigh NC.

1958: Delivered new to Wilson G. McConnell, Montreal, PQ on 19 May. Mr. McConnell was quite a car enthusiast and held patents for fuel systems. His collection included Rolls Royce, Bentley, Jaguars, Bugatti, 300SL Gullwing, and others including a 1960 DB4, RHD in black & tan.

1967: After Wilson’s death in 1965 at age 57, his widow gave the Aston to her brother in Milwaukee, W. Herbert C. Wallis.

1987: 12,791 miles. Having retired to North Carolina, Herbert Wallis sold the Mark III to Blaine S. Nashold MD, Blaine served as AMOC Area Rep and showed the Mark III DHC at events in NC, VA, CT, and CA. He considered modifying the DHC for vintage racing but considered it “too nice” to race. In 2005 he sold the Mark III.

2005:30,663 miles.  The DHC was at the Aston dealer in Boston; the dealer then sold the Aston back into the Wallis family. 

2012: Now with 31466 miles.
