Re: Lanchester Landaulette Circa 1930

Actually, I've discovered the Lanchester 18 was available in a landaulette. The sales brochure lists the 'Four Window Saloon' at £595. This body had dummy pram irons. For an extra £40 it could be provided with a head which folds back from the rear door pillar; while at an extra cost of £25 a partiti...

Re: Lanchester Landaulette Circa 1930

Hello, It’s a 1933/4 Lanchester 18. Not one I have come across before so I have added it to my list. I’ve asked the auctioneer if they would be kind enough to let me have the chassis number.

Re: LQ3-20 ISSUES

Hello, I had my Lanchester 15/18 Hub bearing nuts off 3 years ago. It was a pig of a job. Looking at the Parts Catalogues, the Daimler 2-20 and L 15/18 use the same parts, however, the Daimler 3-20 has different part numbers (not to say they are necessarily different). Anyway, I confirm they are lef...

Re: AC T Type fuel pump

Hi Julian, I think Dave is an autojumbler who takes an special interest in AC fuel pumps. I've only ever bought complete reconditioned pumps from him. I imagine any repair kits he has are required by him. Sorry if I gave you the impression that he is a retailer with ready stocks of repair kits. Keep...

Re: First ever owner

Brilliant. I love these stories. You must let Kevin Bennett have it for publication in the DM. I too researched the first owner of my car, taking me right back to his birth year of 1869! All the best and take care, Ranald
