1911 Daimler 6-23 Phaeton For Sale

Registration: BF 5777

Chassis no: 8701

Engine no: 9021

Beginning with the production of a two cylinder, four hp car based on the existing Panhard in 1897, Daimler of Coventry established a well deserved reputation for quality and reliability. Convincing proof was offered when one such Daimler was the first motor car to traverse the entire length of the British aisles between Land’s End and John O’Groats. King Edward VII purchased a six hp Daimler in 1900, beginning a long association between England’s royalty and Daimler.

A line of two and four cylinder models were produced under J.S. Critchley over the next few years, and then in 1902, a new three car model line, designed by Edmund Lewis was introduced. King Edward again chose a new Daimler, this time a 22 hp model.

Daimler was highly regarded for performance, with a succession of four and six cylinder automobiles, powered by engines ranging from 3.3 litres to a mammoth 10.4 litres. However, soon after Daimler opted for refinement over raw power with the adoption of the sleeve valve engine designed by American Charles Knight. Following the merger of Daimler with BSA in 190, the Daimler model line up was streamlined in the interest of effiency.

The handsome 1911 Daimler Phaton offered here is one of the earliest products of the Daimler-BSA union, and it is said to have once been a personal car of King George V, however no recors are available to support this claim.

A meticulous, concours quality restoration of the body and interior was undertaken in the 90’s with it’s quality confirmed by concours wins at the Meadow Brook and at the prestigious Pebble Beach Councours d’Elegance, where it was awarded the coveted Lord Montagu of Beaulieu Award for the most significant English car.

The exterior is finished in two beautiful shades of green with fine red coachlines flowing through the length of the car. Various brass finishing adorn the Daimler, to see the quality of in-person truly is remarkable. The interior again meets Concours standards with the unmarked buttoned leather and Wilton carpet to the rear.

Key features of this Daimler are the inline six-cylinder engine, four-speed gearbox, live front and rear axles with semi elliptic leaf springs, rear coil spring dampers and rear wheel internal expanding brakes and foot-operated transmission brake.

In more recent years an eye-watering amount has been spent at the renowned specialist N P Engineering, where every aspect of the engine and gearbox was stripped and re-assembled to the highest of qualities. The outcome is truly remarkable with one of the sweetest engines we have heard.

This handsome, refine and well-equipped automobile would be suited to any collection of eclectic Brass Era motor cars, in our showroom and ready for viewing.
