Cohort Outtake: A Daimler at Benz Transmissions

Posted at the Cohort by Foden Alpha

Here’s serendipitous combination of car and shop name. Too bad there’s no Mercedes. Maybe there’s one in the shop.

That Daimler is of course a UK Daimler, so there’s nor actual connection to Benz, as the German Daimler Benz marriage didn’t take place until…1926 (I remembered that right; I guess I’m not quite ready for memory care yet).  More specifically, it’s a Daimler Majestic. You might be surprised to know that it first saw the light of day in 1958, not 1948. Which might explain why Daimler wasn’t around much longer as an independent company, having been bought by Jaguar in 1960.
