DAIMLER DE36

Saloon, limousine, drophead coupÈ, numerous specials.

Britain's last production straight-eight and the basis for the earlier Docker spectulars that used to enliven Earls Court (remember the Green Goddess drophead?) Mechanics similar to the DE27s, including detachable head. Seven Royal families (not least ours) bought them, but it's over 220ins long and weighs close on three tons.
