Our Daimler DE36 is now available for hire.
This fabulous car has recently been restored. With luxurious leather seating and walnut wood trim and plenty of space in the back this car will seat up to six passengers. The graceful lines of the bodywork are coloured with a gorgous white gold metallic colour. Restored over two years this car has brand new paintwork and restored interior.
This actual car was displayed at the original 1947 New York Motor show. The show was the first after the second world war and one of the biggest shows in the US at the time. It was commisioned for the show by Sir Bernard Docker who chaired the Daimler Motor company at the time. In 1947 this car was the worlds most expensive costing £7000, which equates to £180,000 in todays money. It was Britains last straight-eight passenger car and only 205 were built between 1946 and 1953. DE36's became famous for their use in the Royal Tour to South Africa in 1947.
