Hooper and Co
Hooper began by building coaches in 1805 and turned to car bodies about 100 years later. Already holding the Royal Warrant for supplying carriages moved by horses, it was natural that they would be asked to build carriages moved by horsepower too. Business thrived even through the Great Depression, and in 1938 Hoopers bought out Barkers. During the second world war the BSA Group (owners of Daimler) bought out Hoopers leading to a strong presence of Hooper (and Barker) coachwork on Daimler chassis. By 1959 Hooper had just about ceased and Daimler went in with Jaguar a couple of years after
