More information on this Daimler:
Two Daimler Conquests were parked up in this South Manchester driveway in the early 1990s. I wonder what happened to them? Values of these mid-size 1950s Daimlers have never been high so only an enthusiast would throw many thousands at getting either of these cars restored.
This section of oldclassiccar is full of photographs showing a mix of unrestored, derelict, abandoned, and scrapped old cars. Some cars are with enthusiasts awaiting restoration, others are dumped or seen in breakers yards. I don't have any more information on the classic Daimler above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular Conquest would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Daimler Conquest, are shown as a reminder of how old cars go to look once past their first flush of youth. Some of the scrapyards in this archive no longer exist, others perhaps survive but don't allow you to walk around them. And those that you can still get in probably don't have many classics in them any more. For more photos like this one of the Conquest, and similar old Daimlers, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
