A small car by Daimler standards, the Conquest was, according to The Autocar, designed to cater for the driver who requires a vehicle of high quality and detail finish, coupled with a good performance, but does not want a large or heavy car. The medium-sized Conquest debuted in 1953 featuring a new 2.4-litre, overhead-valve, six-cylinder engine coupled to the familiar Daimler fluid flywheel and pre-selector gearbox, and retained a separate chassis incorporating independent front suspension and Girling hydro-mechanical brakes. Announced the following year and equipped with a big-valve aluminium cylinder head and twin SU carburettors, the Conquest Century version produced 100bhp and was good for around 90mph. Well restored, albeit at date unknown, and purchased by the current owner in 1988, this Conquest has not been used for some time with the result that the Wilson pre-selector gearbox now requires some attention. Otherwise, the vehicle is in very good condition in all respects, its engine running well. No Swansea V5 document has been issued for the car, but the old-style buff logbook for the registration OKV 884 is on file together with expired tax discs dating from 1953, which should facilitate retrieval of the number. Finished in maroon with biscuit leather interior, the vehicle is offered with sundry restoration invoices, the aforementioned logbook and a good file of history. No reserve.
