A gorgeous 1939 Daimler DB18 Drophead Coupe that ferried Winston Churchill around the UK during his 1944 and 1949 election campaigns is heading to auction. 

Only eight units were produced by Daimler in 1939 and of those eight four were destroyed in bombing raids while a fifth was sold for scrap. As of today the only known survivor is chassis number 49531 seen above. 

Finished in silver over black coachwork with a contrasting three-position cabriolet hood, inside you’ll find green leather seats as well as beautiful, period Jaeger-LeCoultre instruments on the wooden dashboard. 

The car will be sold by Historics at Brooklands on December 4 when it is expected to fetch £200,000 – £250,000.
