The time has come to start clearing out some of my collection of rare. and frankly beautiful cars. I am relocating overseas so some of the toys have to go to other homes.
Please note. I am passionate about my cars and would like to see them all go to good homes with enthusiasts that see the cars as precious investments as I do.
This car is stunning.
1953 Daimler Conquest Century2. 5 litre straight six (OHC) with a four speed pre-select gearbox
This car drives perfectly.  
Exterior:
Dark Blue with very good but not perfect paint. It comes up beautifully with a wax. with only a couple of blemishes. We have used the car for a few formals and weddings and it always looks stunning.
Chrome work is stunning. Glass is unmarked. Even the trafficators work!
Interior
Beautiful blue leather in outstanding condition. Timber dash and door frames. The timber is craftsman built and it shows. The lines are stunning
The only thing non original is a stereo. Somebody has put a cassette player in at some point but it was blown. The reason it has blown was because the car is a positive to ground electrical system. On putting the CD player in the car we imported a rectifier from the US allowing it to be used in this configuration.
The car is still using the speakers it had in 1953. concealed under the roof lining and behind the rear seat. It does not play in stereo. and it isn't loud.
The car has a lot of history and a significant heritage. It also comes with extensive log books.
This car has been a pleasure to own and drive. and has recently been valued for insurance purposes at $29000
This car is definitely one to treasure and would be a real asset to any collection.
Nothing to spend - just get in and drive!
Please note. I prefer bank deposit for payment. but if you need to pay by paypal you will need to cover the fees applied by Paypal.
I can assist with delivery on my Tilt tray at reasonable cost for buyers within a 600km range. Will work with your transport company to make shipping as smooth as possible. including delivering to a freight yard for interstate buyers.
