‘Queen Mum’s’ car needs some TLC

1947 Daimler DE27 Hooper limousine consigned to H&H Classics sale

A piece of British history is heading to H&H Classics online auction scheduled for July 3 when a 1947 Daimler DE27 customized by Hooper is on the docket — and expected to sell for $10,000 to $12,500 because it needs some work.

According to H&H Classics, the car was built for Daimler group chairman Bernard Docker and used by him in France. On his return to England, the car was presented to Rossleigh Ltd of Edinburgh, which held the “Royal Warrant.” The car was then used by the Queen Mother while visiting Edinburgh in 1950 and later by Princess Elizabeth.

The auction house says the car was used for numerous state functions, and wore the SF1 license plate (which is not being sold with the car).
