Re: Daimler Roadster Overdrive

Thanks for your suggestions. Your are right about not having motorways in the 1950's so overdrive was not needed.

Daimler Roadster Overdrive

I am the proud owner of a 1954 Daimler Roadster with a Wilson preselector gearbox. I am wondering if it is possible to fit an overdrive to the car. At present when I am doing 70mph I am doing over 3,000rpm - much to high!

With thanks, Ivar H
