When I was employed in the Drawing Office of the Daimler Motor Co. in Coventry I was responsible for a time for compiling Lubrication Charts, Handbooks and Service Data for the cars made there in 1946 to about 1949 and the engine oil specified was the “Daimler Solvent Process Oil”.
This oil was also specified in the Introduction Book issued for the Lanchester Ten made at the Daimler Burns Lane factory in that time.
Actually, I used this oil in my old o.h.c. Morris Minor. I used to go down to the oil stores and obtain a gallon of this Daimler oil for about 2/6d. a gallon, which one must admit was quite a bargain.
It may interest you also that in the picture of the Jaguar, NUB 120, you are almost in the area where I used to park my own car when I was in the Drawing Office there when it was unthinkable that the proud Daimler sign at the gates could ever be replaced by “Jaguar Ltd.”
