Where Rolls Royce attracts Millionaires, Gentlemen are attracted to Daimlers!
Daimler introduced a new model just before the Second World War: the DB18 or 2½-litre. This new six-cylinder engine was used in military vehicles during the war; few civilian cars were being made in those years. After the war, the 2½-litre resumed production until the 1948 Motor Show at which the new Consort model was announced. This was to be the height of luxury, fitted out in wood and leather.
The new model was technically accomplished, featuring Girling-Bendix brakes – hydraulic at the front – and a Wilson per-selector gearbox, which was very much a Daimler favourite.
Modern style was given a small nod, with the headlamps now fared into the wings and the radiator swept back from the upright position. Semaphore indicators were now fitted to the upper B posts.
ABOUT THIS CAR
- This Consort is a 1950 model.
- Here is a car on which care and attention has been lavished, especially during recent years, when a good degree of restoration took place.
- Paintwork is in White and Black and is nice and shiny.
- Doors open easily, all four hinged off the B post, and close with a satisfying clunk.
- Leather Upholstery is still like new with hardly any sign of wear. Carpet is good. Hood lining very good.
- The boot is not huge, but the lid is bottom-hinged and clearly strong enough to carry the weight of a case or two.
- Open the butterfly-bonnet and the engine gleams with a very English degree of discretion and reserve. Nothing is too showy, but it’s all calm and efficient.
- Access to the seating is easy, the four doors opening wide enough to admit an adult each. The interior is extremely comfortable.
- Walnut in good condition, as is chrome.
- White Wall Tires compliment the car nicely.
- The flat floor allows a feeling of spaciousness that is confirmed by the view from the large windows.
- 4-spd Wilson pre-selector - works well.
- Mechanically sound - very pleasant and stately to drive.
- Spare wheel, jack etc all with car.
- Lovely car.
Here is a car over seventy years old, upon which money – and importantly, time – have been heaped.
Restoration and maintenance costs would have long exceeded the present asking price.
One might be understandably reluctant to buy a car like this for daily use, but as a weekend toy, perhaps gracing an occasional wedding; it could very easily put a serene smile on the new owner’s face.
Car will be sold WOF'd and Registered if sold in New Zealand.
TRANSPORT / WORLDWIDE SHIPPING CAN BE ORGANISED ON THIS VEHICLE ON BUYER'S BEHALF AT BUYERS COST.
