2 photos of a beautiful Daimler limousine used during the Royal Visit to New Zealand 1953/54; now residing in a small motor museum some way out of Christchurch, South Island, on the way to Lake Takapu.

Very stately, and fortunately the museum was far enough away from Christchurch to not be affected by the earthquakes.

Also, a beautful MkVIII and a Daimler Conquest, both for sale in a Christchurch museum/showroom........hopefully, these survived. Sadly, our suitcases weren't big enough to fit the MkVIII in.  Grrr.

Incidentally, the Royal Visit was of HM The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh    The owner/curator of the museum, at a place called Geraldine, which also had an enormous collection of tractors, did fire up the Daimler whilst we were there.........silky smooth and VERY quiet; no DPF systems, electronic readers etc. there then!

No doubt this Daimler would be worth quite a bit should it find its way to UK, accompanied, one thinks, by a large container of chrome polish.

As always, happy growling, or, in the case of the Daimler, happy purring
