DAIMLER CONQUEST

Saloon.

Yes, it cost £1066 without purchase tax. Shorter, lighter Consort replacement with short-stroke 75bhp engine, torsion-bar front suspension. Automatic chassis lubrication and wood and leather trim still there; so are hydromech brakes. The all-steel body is a rust trap, though driveable examples needn't be expensive.
