1911 Daimler 38hp TK18 Dual Phaeton


car description

Chassis number 9167 Engine Number 9926 Very very rare & in beautiful running condition. Originally this car was ordered by a wealthy New Zealand based sheep station owner. It subsequently went to Australia where its current touring body by Dunnet & Hawkes of Brisbane was fitted. The car has a four cylinder sleeve valve engine of some 6.3 litres in capacity. A massive engine rebuild was undertaken a couple of thousand miles ago to the tune of in excess of £60,000. This included new custom made cylinder bore liners , cylinder heads, cylinder blocks, Sleeves, junk rings & pistons etc etc etc. Consequently the engine is in not far off "as new" condition. It starts readily & settles down to an almost imperceptible idle. The quietness of this sleeve valve design has to be heard to be believed. An electric start mechanism has been fitted for ease of starting, obviating the need to swing 6.3 litres from cold on the handle. On the road the car drives beautifully. Ample torque is available in all of the three gears & the car drives along in a very Ghost like manner. Indeed the car represents a superb alternative to a Ghost at a fraction of the price for a similarly dated machine. The car com
