Daimler 16-20 (?)

Post by Beat Weibel » Tue Mar 13, 2018 3:31 pm

What type of car is this? In my view it must be a Daimer LQ 16/20, the predecessor of the LQ 2-20 and 3-20 series. In other words still driven by sleeve engine but already having the preselector gearbox and fluid flywheel.
Best regards

It is indeed a 16/20 - and was probably the one which went through Anglia Car Auctions five years ago.

Here is a video of the car:

The video shows the typical sleeve engine blue smoke.
Interesting that is a small saloon and not a limousine.
