This 1955 Daimler Conquest DJ250 sedan is finished in black over a red interior and is powered by a 2.4L inline 6-cylinder engine paired with a preselector 3-speed manual transmission. This Conquest was manufactured in Coventry, England by the Daimler Company Limited and was later imported to the United States. Equipment includes fog lamps, double-wishbone front suspension, and reupholstered interior. Located in Riverside, California, this DJ250 is now offered for sale on a clean California title in the seller’s name.
The car was refinished in its original shade of black as part of a restoration eight years ago. The car has a single, fender-mounted chrome side-view mirror, chrome door handles, bumpers, and headlight surrounds, all in good condition with no flaking or pitting. The 4-door saloon design features an elongated hood, while the roofline utilizes a fixed B-pillar and rear quarter window, with a humpback style trunk.
Factory 15” steel wheels are finished in black with chrome dog-dish style hubcaps and mounted to Ironman 205/75 tires on all four corners. The braking system has been recently serviced with a new master cylinder, new brake shoes, and new wheel cylinders.
The right-hand-drive interior is fitted with a reupholstered red vinyl bench seats in the front and rear and equipped with matching carpet and door panels. The top and bottom edges of the doors are trimed with wood, matching the full wood dashboard. The gear selector for the preselector transmission is fixed to the steering column while hand cranks for the door handles and window controls are present on the door panels. The car comes with a spare tire mounted in the trunk with a cargo cover overlay.
Instrumentation includes a large centrally-mounted 100mph speedometer as well as dash-mounted auxiliary gauges for fuel level, voltage, and coolant temperature, as well as an analog clock. The five-digit odometer reads 58k miles, which is not believed to be original.
The 2.5L inline 6-cylinder engine is made of cast iron with a single carburetor and was factory rated at 75 hp and 124 lb-ft of torque when new. The transmission is a 3-speed manual with column-mounted shifter and it has a preselector gearbox with a fluid flywheel. Service history includes new brakes, new wheel cylinders, and a rebuilt master cylinder. The vehicle also received a recent valve job, as well as new tires.
The sale includes some invoices for parts, a Daimler factory service manual, and a parts catalog.
