Daimler Empress Parts wanted

Post by IanCansfield » Mon Jan 28, 2019 9:44 pm

I am in the final throws of restoring a 1952 2.5lt Daimler Empress 4 door saloon and am hoping to track down the final pieces in the automotive jigsaw. The main things I am missing are a kerbside rear door lock mechanism, along with chromed interior grab handle, one narrow spindle window winder arm and interior door handle. I may be interested in other spares if anyone is looking to sell these.

There's a company called Flying spares. They are Rolls Royce and Bentley specialists but might be able to help as many of the parts relate to Hooper coach builders.

HI, I have just been sent details of a 2.5 litre Empress that has ben part converted into a drop head. The work has stopped and I suspct will not continue. The owner is looking to sell but the car has a good number plate on it so there may be an issue with perceived value. The car looks to be in good condition apart from the fact that it no longer has a roof. Will let you know if the asking price is sensible. At the moment it isn't...
