This is a very rare Hooper bodied Daimler Empress. I do not have much history on the car She is I good running order. I recently took her on a 60 run and she was a pleasure to drive. We have carried our some re-commissioning work as she hadn't been used for about 4 years. We have replaced the exhaust with a stainless system. The previous owner acquired her in 2004 some after which she was re-painted in her current livery. The bodywork and finish is good but not concourse. One of the White Wall Tyres will need replacing as white is flaking off. She would benefit from TLC over the winter. a good service on the brakes and some adjustment to the pre-selector wouldn't go amiss. We are able to carry out this work if required by new owner. We acquired the car as part of a collection we recently purchased. and unfortunately she doesn't fit with the rest of our fleet. We will be sorry to see her go as she is such a pretty car. Please call Rob on 07967 491885 for further information or the arrange a viewing. which I strongly recommend. I WILL NOT RESPOND TO REQUESTS FOR BUY NOW PRICES.

Comments and questions to the seller:

from Prof. Dennis Morgan, dated 25 july 2017
Dear Sirs,
I am seriously interested in your lovely Empress, and am willing to make a near offer, pending information/help on having the car shipped to me in San Diego, California, USA, 92065. I am a DLOC member, and currently own a 1954 Daimler Conquest, so am familiar with the marque.
I own several vintage Jaguar Saloons, (Mk.Vll, Mk.Vlll,rhd and Mk.lX,) if a partial trade is possible? I am a serious buyer, check my eBay profile under cal.carbuff. Do, please, let me know how we can proceed!
Kind regards,
Dennis,
in Ramona, (near San Diego, CA. USA,) 92065

Hello, do you have any photos of the dashboard, motor and boot. Which gears are slipping? and does it still have its overdrive gearbox. Thank you.
Regards Andrew Peterson
