Footnotes

  • One of the founding firms of the British motor industry, Daimler was part of the expanding BSA group by 1911. The adoption of the refined 'Silent Knight' sleeve-valve engine had done much to turn around the company's fortunes and establish Daimler as a marque committed to engineering excellence, a policy which continued in the 1920s with the introduction of the 'Double-Six' - Britain's first V12. A new range of sleeve-valve sixes was introduced for 1926, and these chassis began to attract an increasing proportion of owner-driver coachwork. This trend continued with the introduction of the first of Daimler's pushrod overhead-valve sixes - the 1,805cc Fifteen - in 1933. The range expanded and in 1937 a larger six, the EL24, intended for formal saloon/limousine coachwork, was introduced. Boasting a 124" chassis, the EL24 was powered by a 3,317cc engine, which drove via Daimler's trademark Wilson pre-selector gearbox.

    An ideal formal car with internal division and occasional seating, this well presented EL24 limousine has been used for wedding hire in recent years, albeit sparingly. The rear passenger compartment has been re-trimmed in grey leather, while more recent works include refurbishing the wheels and a full engine rebuild undertaken by Bentley and Rolls-Royce specialists DEW Car Services of Eynsham. Driving very well, the car is offered with a V5C Registration Certificate.
