Description
Lot #377 - Based on the Daimler Regency platform, a handful of 4 door saloons bodied in aluminum over English ash wood by Hooper & Co. of London were built beginning in 1952. This is a preserved original car with right side drive. In over 60 years this Empress has done only 63,000 miles. The original jack and tools are in the trunk. Daimler's fluted clamshell grille is flanked by distinctive tri-bar headlamps. The gray leather interior shows patina in the best sense of the word and should be described as mellowed rather than worn, while the extensive wood trim on the dash, doors and trim is exquisite. There are power windows in front and manually operated windows in the rear. The front seat backs are fitted with foldout tables for passengers riding in the rear bench seat. A testament to the craftsmanship of both Daimler and Hooper, this remarkably original car is made all the more desirable by its rarity. It is an ideal automobile for an astute collector to enjoy, experience, admire and continue to preserve an example of the finest English craftsmanship. Owner represents 63,000 original miles, title says exempt.
