Daimler DS420 Limousine by VandenPlas. Variations were made to the interior, but gradually the quality of their work seems to have been left to produce of big square boxes to hold all the creature comforts......

Daimler Double Six Ser.1 Saloon by VandenPlas. Badge engineering twice over, and not really appreciated by motoring journalists as a marked improvement on Jaguar models costing much less.

Daimlers were often clothed in house, or by Hooper, but this car is a pillarless saloon on the prewar Daimler Straight Eight chassis, which was later made immortal by its role in the movie "Remains of the day".

Apart from the pillarless door construction, the exact same design was used on Rolls-Royce 25/30 #GAR41 (see that section).
