If you closely observe rear seat picture, the arrow marked on the roof shows the clamp holding the rear roof down.

Hi Everyone,

Very exciting news to Daimler Enthusiasts, Brian Smith is almost finished the third volume of Daimler Days.

He has been in touch about the Daimler Allweather shown with the Queen back in 1961.

Where could we source high quality pictures of that occasion, possibly for inclusion in the book?

Cheers

That picture came from the Government of India (Photo Division) site. Does someone have any connections ? I could not order on line.

This piece appeared in a June 1947 issue of The Autocar, featuring a 2.5 litre Daimler saloon driving 1300 miles across undivided India. Unfortunately it seems a page is missing.

Thanks Karl for sharing. The car appears to be very similar to my 1947 Daimler DB18

From the colour combination, colour of the lights and that it is a Daimler, we may speculate this to be a Nawanagar car.

These pictures were taken in the 90's at Bangalore.

The colour combo and lights are distinct

Note that this is rare 4 door drop head. Probably a zenana car as the rear glass is blackened

Brian Smith the Daimler Historian has confirmed that the above car is indeed a Nawanagar Tickford DB 17/18. We had speculated the same based on the colour combination and lights
