In September 1949 the popular 10 HP chassis was fitted with a new four-light Barker coachbuilt body (aluminium panels on a wood and steel framework) which, although similar in appearance to the previous Briggs (steel) bodied version at the front, have a more attractive line and feature curved windows and a spacious luggage compartment.
The new Fourteen is almost identical to Daimler Conquest, but with Lanchester grille, and 60 bhp 1968cc,four cylinder version of Daimler six cylinder engine. Pre-selector box, torsion bar ifs, hydro mechanical brakes and centralised chassis lubrication. Pressed steel body panels on ash frame construction. London Motor Show saw the De Ville Convertible version of the Fourteen with power operated hood and windows.
