The Daimler DB18 is a 2½-litre version of the preceding
2. 2-litre New Fifteen introduced in 1937. Using the engine
developed for the Daimler Scout Car. it was offered to customers
from 1939 as a six-cylinder chassis on which Daimler and various
British coach builders offered a range of bodies including
drop-head coupés. The model was introduced immediately before the
start of the World War II. during which the company was compelled
to concentrate on the manufacture of military vehicles. Therefore
most DB18s were produced after 1945. The car was supplied with the
Daimler Fluid Flywheel coupled to a four-speed Wilson Pre-selector
gearbox.

This unusual example has been owned by the current vendor for
the last 25 years. it has mainly been used for family outings and
occasionally for weddings. It was originally purchased in
Chippenham. Wiltshire from a marine engineer who purchased the car
as a hobby. He had skillfully converted the car from a four-door
Consort to a two-door DB18 Open Tourer. The car has been kept in a
dry garage and very well looked after. Although in 'oily-rag'
condition. various works were completed at 65. 00 miles and
included all new brake linings. new plugs and points. new
marine-ply floor. new carpets and all wings and doors removed. br/>re-painted and refitted with new nuts and bolts. Seatbelts have
been installed as the car has been used with children but the belts
can be hidden away under the seats. It has recently had an
inspection by a mechanic and is running and ready for the next
owner.
