The Victorian Daimler Owners Club kindly sent some wiring diagrams for the DE 36 landaulette. These will help our conservators immensely when they start work on the electrics of the vehicle. As you can imagine, these kinds of resources are not easy to come by in 2013. It is our aim to have the vehicle fully functioning again, including all the plush extras like the electric windows, as it was for the 1954 Royal Tour. The support of interested community members and enthusiasts, like the Victorian Club, greatly help our work – thank you.

"As an enthusiast of the Daimler Marque I am so pleased to see that this worthy old car has been rescued and will be conserved and restored and once again be the subject of public attention. The Daimlers were great cars, often associated with interesting events and times and hopefully this project will help to bring them back into the hearts and minds of the Australian public."
