1937 Daimler

This was just posted in USA on ebay. Doesn't look too bad, shame the factory motor is gone. I'm not sure what the model is called.

I think it is a Straight Eight Limousine. However, the grill doesn´t match. These rounded grills were produced only after the second world war as of 1947 approximately.

The first Rounded Daimler Grill was on an EL24 in 1939.

Whoops I keep typing the wrong thing. The first car with the Rounded radiator was the ES24. Which I located in Bedfordshire, a few years ago, and managed to get the owner to put it into good storage where it awaits restoration.

The grill of this car looks to me like one from a DE36, 1947 or later,

My learned friend has sent the following comment on this car.
The car discussed on the forum is indeed a Straight-Eight, a V4 1/2. It has been updated with the post-war "DE"-series frontal treatment.

Hang on... there's a 4.5 litre Daimler V8 advertised on eBay - if only....

I had posted the same car almost 2 weeks back..(see below) .. cosmetically it looks nice..clearly its had a good deal of time and money spent on it, and should be a dependable and very useable car with the modern era GM engine (appears to be the common 350 or 5.7 litre) but it needs some additional work to match a few things.. the rear axle has bolt on wheels (likely a more modern unit... and is most probably a dana 44 ) whilst the fronts appear to be spilne drive.. so one would need more than just 1 spare wheel .. the good news is that splined hubs with fit the dana 44, which is almost identical the the Salisbury 4HA unit used on the 2 1/2 litre V8 saloon and Mk2 jaguar.. no info on gear box , but its likely a 3 speed auto or the 4 speed overdrive unit.. either way a very unusual car that has been mechanically altered to suit a US owner/operator.. cosmetic restoration to this standard would cost more than asking price.. but value is of course in the eye of the beholder..
