Daimler’s flagship DE series debuted in 1946 as their largest and most expensive car on offer. The chassis was a fairly conventional design with x-bracing and independent front suspension; Hotchkiss drive rear axle, and Girling hydro-mechanical brakes. Two versions were available, the 138-inch wheelbase DE27 which was powered by the Daimler Twenty Seven inline-six cylinder engine (named such for its taxable horsepower rating), or the range-topping DE36 which featured a grand 147-inch wheelbase and was powered by a 5.4 liter inline-eight cylinder engine. The Thirty Six was essentially Britain’s last straight eight (Rolls Royce did use one in the "heads of state only" Phantom IV, but only eighteen were ever produced). It is a marvelously smooth, overhead valve unit with nine main bearings and a 150 horsepower output. Every bit of that power was needed to pull along the large and opulent bodies that were fitted to the DE36 chassis. Just 205 examples of the Thirty Six were built between 1946 and 1953, with a great many finding favor with the Royal Families of Afghanistan, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Thailand as well as at home in England. At the time the DE36 was built, Daimler counted Hooper & Co. Coachbuilders among its subsidiaries. Hooper had a long tradition of supplying coaches and motor bodies for the British Royal Family and was considered to be a purveyor of the finest quality bodies available. Hooper would stop at nothing to meet their clients’ wishes. Their long association with Daimler produced some fabulous and memorable motorcars. Hooper’s signature post-war style was fabulously elegant; with long, graceful sweeping lines and exquisite detailing. To promote Daimler and Hooper, BSA Chairman Sir Bernard Docker and his wife Lady Docker (who incidentally was made director of Hooper) commissioned a series of show cars for the annual Earl’s Court Motor Show. A run of six different style “Docker Daimlers” were produced; three on the DE36 chassis, consisting of The Green Goddess of 1947, The Golden Daimler of 1951 and the Blue Clover coupe in 1952. The 1953 Silver Flash was built on a 2 ½ liter Conquest Century chassis, and the final two, Stardust and Golden Zebra, sat atop DK400 chassis. Of all the Docker Daimlers, it is the stunning Green Goddess that attracted the most attention, enough so that it spawned a very short production run – with approximately 7 made. Of those seven originals, four are known to survive, each slightly different from the next, with our featured example built in 1948. This fine example was restored some years ago in Europe, and remains in good order throughout. It is painted in a very attractive burgundy and red combination much like its sister car, and the body is pleasingly well detailed and respectably presented. The original show car earned its name thanks to the metallic jade green paintwork applied to the magnificently sweeping and curvaceous drophead body. Today, all cars are known by this nickname regardless of color. Beyond the fabulous Hooper-designed bodywork, it is the sheer scale of the Green Goddess that really captured the attention of show goers. The wheelbase is a massive 147 inches long, and the body is a full 20 feet in length and 78 inches wide at the front. As a point of reference, the original Land Rover rode on an 80 inch wheelbase. The body was loaded with interesting details and features such as a hydro-electrically operated soft top which disappeared beneath a body-color metal cover. Side windows were electrically operated and headlights were faired-in to the front wings behind Perspex covers with fluted chrome trims that mimicked that of the signature Daimler radiator shell. Rear wheel spats are affixed to sprung hinges and built-in jacks at each corner make for civilized servicing should one encounter a puncture. In spite of the aluminum construction of the body, all of those details add up and the Green Goddess weighs in at over 6,000 pounds. The tan leather interior is equally as magnificent, flamboyant and beautifully styled as the exterior. As the DE36 Green Goddess is wider at the front than the rear, seating is a unique 3+2 arrangement, with large leather chairs up front for three, and two individual seats in the rear. The rear seats are cleverly positioned so passengers have a clear view of the road ahead, and if that isn’t enough, they can be raised, theater-style, to allow rear passengers to see over those in front. The driver is treated to a fabulous view down the impossibly long bonnet and faces a gracefully curved wood dash, peppered with bespoke instruments and ivory-colored switchgear. Speed can be registered in either KM or Miles, a feature that hinted at the cross-continental ability of the big Daimler. A column mounted gear selector controls a Daimler pre-select Fluid-Flywheel transmission for seamless, smooth shifting. Ineffable elegance and breathtaking presence define the Daimler DE36 Green Goddess. Sir Bernard Docker was certainly no wallflower; he very much enjoyed using his very special motorcar, and it must have made quite an impact on the narrow British B-roads! With just four known survivors, the Hooper Green Goddess is undeniably an extremely collectible and very important automobile. For many, it marks the high point for both Daimler and the Hooper & Co. Coachbuilders, an impossibly grand statement in the waning days of the custom coachbuilding era.

Lowered price from €19.950 -> €17.500 The Daimler 2.5-V8 (or 2½ litre V8 ) was launched late in 1962, and was essentially a rebadged Jaguar Mk2, but fitted with Daimler's 2.5 litres V8 engine; aside from the engine, fluted (furrowed brow) grille and rear number plate surround, badges, drive-train and some interior details (such as a split-bench front seat and a black enamel steering wheel) the Daimler 2.5- was otherwise indistinguishable from the Jaguar Mark 2. The 2.5-V8 was the first Jaguar designed car to have the Daimler badge. The Daimler V8 engine was more compact and therefore lighter than the six cylinder engine used in the Jaguar Mark 2, and weighed approximately 50 kg ("1 cwt") less. Spring and damper settings were revised accordingly to suit the altered weight distribution. At the end of 1965, the final drive ratio had been changed from 4.55:1 to 4.27:1, addressing complaints that the car as launched in 1963 had needed to exceed its recommended rev limit in order to reach its top speed, with a corresponding penalty in fuel consumption and engine noise and wear. The testers found the car refined and well equipped with efficient, if rather heavy, brakes. The engine and tra
This ultra original Daimler V8250 was first registered on the 6th March 1969 and supplied new in Ascot Fawn with Red trim. The Daimler is totally standard with factory supplied steel wheels, automatic transmission and original leather upholstery. PEL 603G has a recorded mileage of 82000 and is remarkably original still retaining its wonderful, honest original upholstery. From the condition of the trim it clear this is an honest, genuine car that has never been left to deteriorate. From the history with the car we can see it covered 80000 miles from 1969 to 1996 and over the last twenty years it has been annually MOT tested but has covered just 2000 miles being used for short local running. The Daimler has never required restoration and it's clear this is a car that has never required major work. The V8 engine runs superbly holding correct oil pressure, it offers good performance, sounds fabulous. The automatic gearbox changes up and down smoothly and the car handles and performs well. On arrival with us, the Daimler was put through a programme of mechanical work at our Malton Coachwork workshop and was treated to over £2000 of mechanical work. As a result the Daimler is totally on
About this Daimler Double Six VANDEN PLAS
About this Daimler Double Six First registered August 1977 to Barber Greene Ltd, for their chairman to be chauffeured in. Barber Greene covered 35,000 miles before selling it in late 1979 to the Bank of Boston for their president to be chauffeured in. The Bank of Boston only covered a further 8,000 miles in the eighteen years that they owned it before selling it on to Spearpoint Bland, a London insurance company who kept it for five years. Since 2002 this fabulous Daimler has only had two private owners bringing it to a total of 5. As the supplied Heritage Certificate confirms, this Daimler Double Six is presented in its original colours of almost flawless Amethyst with Black Everflex Roof and dark Olive Hides and Natural Carpets. It really is in as close to mint condition as we have ever seen. As this was the top of the range it is fitted with everything possible including the Daimler accoutrements of individual reading lamps and armrests. There is a comprehensive history file with this car containing numerous detailed invoices, the original service book and Daimler Unipart Passport and 25 old MOTs indicating that the low mileage is correct The last MOT was issued on 1st October 2
About this Daimler V8 250 Launched late in 1962 the 2.5 V8 was the first Jaguar designed car to have the Daimler badge; it was essentially a rebadged Jaguar Mark 2 fitted with Daimler's Edward Turner designed lightweight 2.5-litre V8 engine and drive-train, that had been proven in the Daimler SP250 (Dart) sports car. Exterior details were a Daimler fluted grille and rear number plate surround, distinctive wheel trims and badges. Interior details included a split-bench front seat from the Jaguar Mark 1 and a black enamel steering wheel. Most cars were fitted with power-assisted steering but it was optional. Automatic transmission was standard; manual, with or without overdrive, became an option in 1967. A casual observer, though not its driver, might mistake it for a Jaguar Mark 2. The Daimler's stance on the road was noticeably different from a Mark 2. Three years after its launch, a Daimler 2Â½-litre V8 saloon with automatic transmission tested by the Britain's Autocar magazine in May 1966 had a top speed of 112 mph and could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 13.6 seconds and has a distinct V8 burble. Our example first registered August 1968 (G Reg) is in very good overall condition and
About this Daimler Double Six First registered in May 1995 this beautiful low mileage (51,000 miles recorded and believed correct, based on MOT and Service History) was, it would seem, originally a factory owned car. It was then supplied to its first owner by HA Fox of Guildford. We have on file the factory build sheet which confirms this to be a matching numbers car in its original colours an important consideration when establishing the provenance of a car that will, in our opinion, become a significant classic of the future. These are stately effortless automobiles, with in 1995 the 6.0 litre V12 engine and costing new over Â£60,000 (nearly Â£100k in today's money). We understand just 1,200 of these cars were sold worldwide; we feel this is an opportunity that will rarely present itself again to the luxury saloon connoisseur.
