The Daimler on offer here was supplied new by Dutton Forshaw of Tonbridge, Kent to the legal chambers, Topliss & Harding for one of the partners, a Mr McDoon. We are advised that Mr McDoon retired in 1986 and bought the car at that time. The car was taken off the road in 1993 and remained untouched until it was recommissioned this year. The vendor advises that the vehicle is now running correctly and the only known problem is the fuel change over valve requires replacement (£60) so only the left hand tank is in operation.

The car is a dream to drive and still after all this time delivers a super smooth ride which in 1982 must have been a revelation. The leather interior is in good order as is the woodwork and overall a very nice place to sit.


Sold for £5,040
