Re: special sport front brakes

I had the same thing on an SS. After a lot of heartache (much of which you've already been through!) I found that one of the internal surfaces of the drums, although not scored or marked, was less worn on the outer edge and therefore engaging only on the outer edge of its brake linings. All was well...

Re: Hooper Daimlers

Knowing my penchant for anything Daimler and particularly Hooper Daimler, a friend has spotted this and sent me pictures taken in a garage somewhere in South London. c5bbd5f3-d012-4078-b273-56dc1fe554ee.JPG ed9d75ce-2597-4d27-bc2c-c80497b9d8f6.JPG How nice to see a four-door DJ260 with a Hooper body...

Re: Thailand King's Daimler

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V3zgPhUHi0M I don't think I've ever seen such good pictures of a DE36. Possibly the best condition extant? Fascinating to see the car in action and a few glimpses of the interior. Also fascinating to see the Thai way of life including the 'no-slamming-shut-of-the-door...

Whilst having a tidy-up I came across this black and white photograph.
On the back is stamped Freestone & Webb LTD Feb 49

Re: Hooper Daimlers

Thanks Al.
Regrettably I will not be able to see it but from what you say it would seem that it's had a radiator transplant. Is that the case or am I reading too much into your reply?

Re: Hooper Daimlers

Whilst tidying up my collection I found this:

I wonder if it still exists as a Lanchester and where it is now?

Re: Freestone & Webb DE36 Whereabouts

Thank you for that last photo which I'd not seen before.
Are there any others out there or, even better, of the interior.

Re: Freestone & Webb DE36 Whereabouts

Thank you.
If there is any further info I'd be grateful to hear.
I hadn't realised it was one of two as I thought it was unique.
In my eyes it's the best looking of the DE36s

Freestone & Webb DE36 Whereabouts

[*]Does anyone know if the one-off Freestone and Webb DE36 (a very well proportioned car!) still exists.
If so where is it?
