Description

This luxurious saloon was designed along the same general lines as the Model l03, except that being built on a larger chassis provided for more rear leg-room and wider entry through the rear doors.

 

This very rare car had an unusual form of transmission, the Daimler Fluid Flywheel Transmission, a forerunner to the automatic. This engine and transmission provided for effortless cruising at 45 to 50 mph.

 

The coachwork on this vehicle was the most elaborate available in the 10 hp and was manufactured by Milliners of Birmingham. The original purchase price was 245 pounds.
