Thailand King's Daimler

Post by John-B »

It's good to see a Daimler being used at the coronation of the new King of Thailand.
DE27 or DE36?

It's a DE36. If I recall it has air conditioning and an alternator rather than a dynamo.

King of Thailand coronation

Post by Marcus »

Did any eagle eyed members spot the Daimler used for his coronation that was covered by ITV news at ten the other day? I managed a quick snapshot of it. As you can see, the dog was impressed!
Any suggestions?

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-doors' policy at 3 minutes +

More like this if you search Thai, Daimler DE36, motorcade etc

I'd like to know how it was modified. 100 degrees F and driving slowly with air conditioning for the King.

I hope it had two electric fans and refrigerated coolant!

That Daimler has been in his family for a long time already. I remember that when our king visited Thailand many years ago, it was used for his visit too.

How about the next International DLOC Rally in Thailand?

Rather than the extremities of the British Isles.

Not sure I'd want to spend so much time on my knees!

Do you think they get shot if they slam the doors?
