Re: Daimler Roadster Overdrive

I think these cars were not meant to cruise along at 70mph, they were not Sports Cars. The brother of the first owner of the New Drop Head Coupe that I owned told me that "It was a Gentleman's Cruiser which purred along at 50 to 60 effortlessly" . I think this is the speed that they should be driven...

Re: DB 18-1 Ritz and DB 18-2

I have not ever seen a 6 light Ritz this looks to me like two separate items. A Post-war DB18 2 6 light saloon with an interior from a Pre-war Ritz.

VERY RAARE DB18 RITZ FOR RESTORATION

THERE IS A 1938 DB18 RITZ FOR SALE IN THE H&H AUCTION AT DUXFORD IN MARCH. This car has been stored from at least 1990, and is well worth restoring. The Ritz is a very rare model we only know of 6 survivors. The number of these cars built is unknown as Factory Records were destroyed during the 1939-...

Re: LUCAS CONTROL UNIT RJF 91

Hello Pete, Vintage Supplies sent me one but it was for an RF 91 and not an RJF 91. This was not a good fit but could be cut slightly to make it fit. I rang Classic Dynamos it turns out that they actually make the covers for Vintage Supplies. The person that might be able to help is phoning me tomor...

LUCAS CONTROL UNIT RJF 91

Has anyone got an RJF 91 Control Unit for sale? It does not have to be in working condition. I just need the small bakelite cover over the Control Unit side.
