"Many Thanks to Jesmond and Gloria for the successful marketing of our vehicle. We didn't want the hassle of non-genuine buyers wasting our time requesting views and drives. Waimak Classic Cars specialise in the type of vehicle we had to sell and that's important. Jesmond removed all that and secured a satisfactory result for us."John & Lynda, Christchurch, New Zealand
By the early fifties, Daimler was looking to produce a truly 'modern' car and any new model from the old established Daimler company constitutes an event of considerable note.
The Daimler Conquest commanded widespread attention in its day for the way in which traditions established in the earlier days had been blended with current ideas and requirements.
In appearance, the Conquest is typically Daimler in the more recent post war style. It was designed for the business, professional or family user who required a car of medium size, very lively performance and more than ordinary refinement, but who, nevertheless, could not afford to ignore the cost factor entirely.
Notable design points included an entirely new six-cylinder engine of the short stroke type, a robust chassis with independent front suspension by means of laminated torsion bars, a pressed steel body furnished to typical Daimler standards and the well known Daimler transmission incorporating a fluid flywheel and pre-selector gearbox.
