Production of the Daimler Double Six started in 1926 and although the model remained available until 1937, a production figure of as low as 26 is frequently quoted, but other sources mention a figure closer to 75. All of them were built to meet the special demands of the owners and as a result no two were alike.
The Double Six in this gallery was commissioned by Herbert Wilcox for his wife and famous film star Anna Neagle. The car has a very beautiful 'Sport Saloon' body designed by H. R. Owen and constructed by Martin Walter. With a wheelbase of over four metres, it is the largest Double Six ever built.
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
