Daimler double six??
Wow these are sweet too. I suspect some of our classic car modeler members are going to like these as well.
Unique Double Six
This particular car started out in 1929 as a unique low chassis close-coupled drophead coupe, used by Daimler for shows and displays.
It was sold in 1931, and registered as GP4831, becoming a fixed head coupe in the process.
After an accident, the car was onsold, and given a four seater Drophead Coupe body by the new owner, which is still on the vehicle today.
Only 26 Double Six Daimlers were built, and no two were alike, as they were coachbuilt to suit their owners. The car depicted is a rare survivor, and is described at car shows as a:
"Daimler Double Six 50 Sport Corsica Drophead Coupe"
It won this years Pebbel BEach contest. Here you can find the history of this car. It was owned by Mister Barry Burnett, until he sold it two years ago to the new Pebble Beach Winner.
