Renowned for its large, luxury motorcars, Daimler had to cut its cloth to suit the times, and its answer to the Great Depression was the Fifteen model. Launched in 1932, it was the first Daimler priced at less than £500 since the Great War, and its name was derived from its tax rating of 15hp. Its six-cylinder OHV engine drove through the company's proven fluid flywheel transmission with Wilson pre-selective gearchange, and its capacity grew in stages from 1805cc to 2166cc. The rare example being sold is one of only six remaining 'Ritz' versions, whose identifying luxury features included grey premium quality leather upholstery, chromium-plated door trims and chrome rocker cover. The Daimler is finished in Blue over Black and, though clearly in need of restoration, appears sound and complete. It comes with sales invoice confirming single ownership since 1961, brown log book, current V5C, and a collection of old tax discs and MOTs.
