DB15 no roof

Post by Dobbinridesagain »

A rebody or a de-roof? Looks to me like a failed wedding conversion.
At any rate, unfinished it is said these thirty years.
Well at least it's been properly stored and looks to be all/mostly there, and if that paintwork is thirty years old it must have been well done to have lasted.

A nice project for someone to finish.
It will need new tyres....

Well I'd have said so with the work still to do and engine apart, but already it's gone ....

There were no bids but the listing was ended by the seller. Somebody must have made an offer they couldn't resist. Good luck to whoever it was.

Out of idle curiosity I had a look at the original listing. The bodywork from front to bulkhead is Daimler 15. The cut down doors also seem to be from a 15. The rear end bodywork looks most "un-Daimler like". The engine and instrumentation are Daimler 15.

It's a fascinating mix: the seats appear to be from V8 2.5 saloon, the headlights look too modern, the fuel filler cap seems to be about a foot from the ground.

Pity about the lack of suitable roof, fixed or folding, I imagine it would be difficult to fettle a convertible hood from another car.

Having said all that, I quite like it! It would be a fun project for the right person.
Best wishes, Dave B

It's an early Fifteen, completely standard body just with the roof chopped off. The front screen is not standard.
Fuel tank, rear end is exactly same as my 34 six light.
Looks a nice project.
The seats were originally green as seen in photos. The other seats are 2.5 V8 but the spring frame looks like original rear cushion.

Pete, thanks for correcting my misconception about the rear end of the car. I hope I didn't mislead anyone.
Best wishes, Dave B
