Donated by Thomas Wallace of Centerville, Ohio

This car was probably used by dignitaries in the 1937 six mile long coronation procession of King George VI (“Kings Speech” movie). The Royal Family always had a fleet of Daimler Limos.

Custom body by coachbuilder Arthur Mulliner.

It was imported in the 1960’s by Karl Kleve, an eccentric Cincinnati car collector, and driven into the 1970’s when he then stored it.

Restoration was started by Thomas Wallace.
