The Daimler Conquest is a series of automobiles produced by The Daimler Company Limited in the United Kingdom from 1953 to 1958. Based on the Lanchester Fourteen, the Conquest replaced the Daimler Consort.
Any model from the old established Daimler Company constitutes an event of considerable note.
Although it is somewhat traditional in appearance, the Daimler Conquest has well balanced lines and a smart exterior style. It is a car that commanded widespread attention for the way in which traditions established in the earliest days had been blended with ideas and requirements at the time of production. Designed as a four / five-seater saloon, the body is virtually a four light design, with the very good feature of the addition of rear ventilating panels.

This car was brought out to NZ amongst other cars including Austin Sheerlines & Supersnipes for the Royal Tour of New Zealand of 1954. This would have been just after the Queen's Coronation. After the tour, the importers allocated two or three cars to authorised dealerships in main centers. This one would have gone to Croydon Motors in Christchurch, who then on sold the car to the first person on the registration papers who we understand was an accountant in Fendalton, Christchurch.
