1951 DB18 'Face-lift' Smoothest Preselect Known Of For Sale

This is a very good example of the new shaped DB18 (as we would now refer to it today as the "face-lift" model). The earlier version of the 1947 / 48 DB18 had followed in the style from the the earlier, pre / post war DB17 in style and looks. It also utilised the same 2.5ltr straight 6 engine which had been utilised in the sports version and the reliable war reconnaissance vehicle 'Dingo'.

This upgrade features the new styling of integrated headlights to the front wings and a new concept of rear lighting through the Lucas 'D' lamps.

The sales brochure shows this to be an Export version and boasts a top speed of 86mph - all for a UK price tag of £2110 after taxes.

The example I have for sale is in Royal Blue over White with a Light Blue interior.

I have had some worked on the engine whilst the Wilson 'Pre-Selector' 4 speed column shift and 'Fluid Flywheel' has proved to be effortless and very smooth changing both up and down and claimed to be one of the smoothest in the UK. I had at first been very wary of this box as many have a reputation for kicking back when being used but I have found this to be without grounds for this car.

There is a full Powerflow stainless steel exhaust system which gives a nice solid tone on the outside whilst the comfort of the 'Mulliner Coachwork' ensures a quiet passage for the passengers on the inside.

The radiator has been rebuilt with a modern core structure and includes an additional core at 10mm (original was 2 core at 13mm) also added an electric push fan for occasions when it may require more airflow.

A new battery and some electrics, additional LED's (including New BPF LED headlight bulbs), I have several other projects in hand for this wonderful car which will bring the safety and reliability up todate on this car.

I started this work off with a change over from 'Crossply' to 5 new 'Radials'.

The work is not a comprehensive restoration but followed on from a previous owners handy work to make this a ready to use or complete at your own time rolling restoration.

There are many old features and a few later additions which may or may not be to your liking but it is a good basis for a first time owner of classic cars or for someone wishing to add to an existing fleet.

I am currently in process of redoing the fuel delivery system with braided hoses and a newly fabricated stainless steel tank, together with a restored fuel sender unit and reserve tap mechanism.

I have upgraded from points and condenser to magnetic gap sensors by 'PowerSpark' with all new coil and HT leads.

I have limited history for this vehicle as the previous owner stopped using it several years prior to my ownership and I have not been able to establish contact to discover it's past as I believe the old gent has either retired and sold up or unfortunately died.

I have used this limousine for photo shoots and car shows and it was requested to be the lead car for the senior dignitaries at a local Gala procession followed by many of the local Mayors and councillors. Everywhere it goes it is greatly admired and loved whilst these who have been inside have been enthusiastic and praised the comfort and ride.

Photographs are available and can be included if required.

Please note that the registration shown on the pictures - MGJ 968 - is available with the car if required and by separate negotiation. As are spares and work manuals. I recently acquired a spare engine and gearbox together with some body panels and glass.

I am available to discuss any points and price, please call or email.

Due to the fabrication of the new tank the original mild steel one, which is in very good order, is available for sale or if you wish to order a stainless steel one please contact for details. I have added some very useful modifications and it is available in raw stainless steel or painted finish.
