Thanks to Kevan McLurg and Terry Bass for additional photos and information - This page will evolve as additional information is received. Please visit the DIScussions page for further information -
The NDR is very keen to try to produce a more accurate list of the Davrian Saloons, which unfortunately have never been particularly well documented. To this end, if you have any information which could serve to assist in this task, please do pass it on via the NDR’s e-mail address listed on this website’s homepage.
The NDR Register lists a total of 11 (12 including the Solo Stiletto) but as can been seen below, only two can be directly traced to their current owners.
There are currently seven saloons listed as of unknown origin:
From this, (as all the unknown cars are Imp-based and if we ignore the Rawlson cars and the car in Singapore) it is possibly fair to assume that five of the first six listed cars are likely to come from the following list of possible chassis numbers:
DIS/7/016, DIS/7/029, DIS/7/031, DIS/7/037 and DIS/7/043
(n.b. the ex-Terry Bass/Ian Fidoe car is known not to have been issued a chassis number) :
