or a Majestic?...but you're may be right as the Majestic seems to have rear wings much more flat than the vehicle seen here

It is not a Conquest or a Majestic but a Regency

Because of the rounded rear wings: 1951/1952 Mk.I ?

Because of the rear window too. It doesn't look like the Majestic's or the Conquest. But Regency is very rare

How do you all pronounce the name? In English, it seems to me it'd be DAME-ler; but guess I'm wrong and it's DIME-ler. (German origin?)
Revealing ignorance, I guess. How does it sound in other languages? (We hear "DIME-ler/Chrysler" since the merger, & subsequent break-up.)

It's not ignorance at all, Leeshore. As is so often the case in the British English/American English debate, the American version is the more correct. 'Dimeler' echoes the German pronunciation, 'dameler is how the Brits say it. It's a bit like derby versus darby and clerk versus clark. And as for 'You say tom-ay-tow and I say...', well don't let's go there any more! :D

tipi9 and DynaMike agree about the rear window not Conquest but Regency (Mk.I probably).

This is Mk.II - different bumpers, double-section.

The number plate "C*1" denotes the Australian Prime Minister's car.

I'm not sure why folks think this could be Regency Mk 1. The giveaway is the hubcap style which would not fit a Regency Mk 1 owing to that car's extended stub axle which required a deeper hubcap. The Regency style hubcap was also partly painted in the body colour. Also the petrol cap position indicates a Conquest. The Regency's was much higher on the rear mudguard. The lack of a chrome strip on the rear window indicates a 75 bhp Conquest. If you need more evidence, the overriders on the rear bumper also indicate a Conquest.

@maudslay - interested to read your comments - I'm far too young etc to have known these cars in period, so enjoy seeing an expert at work. Why did Daimler not just standardise their axles - seems a frivolous idiosyncracy not to make things easier for production simplification? Can you suggest a date for this one? Also, any comments on our Conquests welcome in view of what you've said about Regencys and One-O-Fours - /vehicles.php?make=Daimler&model=Conquest&modelMatch=1&modelInclModel=on .

Maudslay on the money again, it is Conquest. From the poor picture, it looks to have the wrong rear overriders fitted, and could possibly be a Mk2 version.

As an aside: Only one Mk1 Regency saloon is believed extant, and is currently in Ireland.

Having looked again at this, the CHASSIS is definitely Conquest Century, even though the trim level suggests Conquest.
