1951-1956 DAIMLER Regency specifications


The Regency took the Consort chassis, fitted it with a new 3-litre engine and topped it all off with a larger, more flowing and graceful body. Introduced in 1951, just 50 were built before production stalled in 1952. Reincarnation came in 1954 with the Regency Mk2, this time with a longer, lower body and a more powerful 3.5-litre engine. Offshoots were the Hooper-built Empress saloon and the more exciting Sportsman, which had a 140bhp alloy-head engine and offered good performance for its size and the era.
