DAIMLER DB 18 SPECIAL SPORTS

Sports tourer.

The delightful Dolphin dual-cowl phaeton, prototype of the post-war sporting Barker dropheads : same inclined valves, alloy head, twin SUs and 90bhp output, and the same overdrive top. Gentleman's motoring with a difference, but sadly at least half the pre-war production collected a Luftwaffe bomb in '40. Maybe three survive.
