My hunch is Rover P2 but without checking it's just a guess.

Close, I admit, but I don't think so.

I thought perhaps Lanchester?

Not LD10 anyway, they have plain centres to the seat panels, but could be from an earlier model. The solid surrounds to the backrests ring a bell but I can't place them. Looks like they've sold.

Maybe they were from a Daimler (like this one?).

Ray, not quite Daimler fifteen as they tend to have a curved back formed in plywood. I think they do look Daimler but a bigger car, possibly DB18?

Good call, Peter. I think this is pretty conclusive.



When I think back good examples of these cars were being scrapped because they cost so much to run. Shocked
