1937 Daimler Light Straight Eight

Recommended Posts

A friend has just died. He owned a 1937 Daimler Light Straight Eight which is supposedly in good running order except that I hear there is a serious oil leak from the Wilson Preselect gear box and the car is standing on probably flat tires. However, it hasn't been out for several years. It is in a garage in Moraga, California, about 20 miles east of San Francisco.

My friend's widow will probably want to sell. For the only other one of this model that I could find on the internet (it is very rare), on sale in Switzerland, the asking price was in the neighborhood of 50,000 dollars. Is anyone on the forum interested, or can anyone suggest how to go about finding a buyer?

Hello, Ken:

I just ran across your post today, while looking up information for another 1937 Daimler that we are selling soon. Has the car been sold yet? If not, I might be able to help, since I am with RM Auctions. Kindly let me know if I can be of service in handling the sale of the vehicle.

Best regards,

David Neyens

Sorry for her loss; here's a link to some other Daimler Light Eights. When talking value of any car,

it's best to let us know what body style the car is, however, any '37 Daimler is a rare find.

Pictures and listing any special coachwork/features really helps, too.
