Daimler Used By Queen Mother Being Auctioned

If you are a classic car enthusiast and are a “fan” of the Royal Family then you may be interested in a vintage vehicle that is shortly to be offered for sale at an H and H classic car auction on the 3rd July 2019. A 1947 Daimler DE27 Hooper Limousine that was originally built for Sir Bernard Docker who was the Group Chairman of Daimler is being auctioned with an estimated price of £8,000 to £10,000.

An interesting thing about this vehicle that is in need of restoration is that when the Queen Mother was in Edinburgh in 1950 it was utilized by her. Whether this will have an impact on how much the car could be sold for remains to be seen but we would not be surprised if it has some effect.

There are a number of other interesting classic vehicles being offered for sale at the auction including a 1933 Vauxhall DX 14/6 Stratford Tourer that has an estimated sale price of £15,500 to £17,500. Only four of these cars are believed to be in existence. This one is said to have taken part in the Dick Barton Special Agent TV series.

An even older car being auctioned is a 1928 Graham Paige 614 Sedan with an estimated sale price of £2,000 to £4,000. It is in need of some restoration and is said to have been found in a barn.

There is a lovely looking 1950 Sunbeam-Talbot 90 Special available for interested purchasers with an estimated sale price of £10,000 to £12,000. This is an open-topped 2 seater sports car that, potentially, would be great to take out for a drive on a sunny summer’s afternoon.

A 1978 MG B GT sports car is available with an estimated sale price of £3,000 to £4,000. Apparently, it was fully serviced in 2018. The interior is said to be the original.
