Lot Number:
Estimate: No Reserve
  • V5 Present
  • Chassis number: D59129
The DB18 model was introduced by Daimler in 1939, but production was interrupted by the Second World War. After it resumed, the existing DB18 was joined by the DB18 Sports Special. This was a much more curvaceous and attractive model, with a distinctive rounded radiator grille that would be a feature of Daimler models for many years afterwards.

This maroon Barker‑bodied drophead coupe variant, with six‑cylinder 2522cc engine, was registered in January 1952, and has had five former keepers.  The odometer reading is 94,584 miles. The car was last on the road in 2015 when it ran in the King's Lynn and District Motor Club Vintage and Classic Car Rally, so will require recommissioning to return to the road.

The paperwork history includes the V5C and a somewhat fragile owner's handbook.
