1961 Daimler SP250 - SOLD
This B-Spec Dart is finished in Indigo Blue and has contrasting grey leather trim with blue piping. This is a sixties Jaguar paint colour and as Jaguar allowed Daimler customers to choose from their entire colour palette, it is entirely authentic.
The car has the essential Dart upgrades of rack and pinion steering and overdrive and also enjoys servo brakes and inertia reel seat belts. It is therefore ideally equipped both for main road touring or simply bumbling around the country lanes. It has a long MOT plus the reassurance of an extensive service history file. The rear axle was overhauled recently and the front wheel bearings were renewed.
The hood, carpets and leather dashboard trim have all been recently renewed. This is a very fine example of Daimler's final sports car and is ready to be enjoyed today
1969 Daimler V8 250 - SOLD
Registered in March 1969 this car was built in the final year of production for the Daimler V8 250 saloon. It is well equipped with Ad West power steering, wire wheels and Coombes style sports spats.
The car is finished in dark navy blue and is showing a mileage of 74,500 which is supported by the MOT paperwork in the comprehensive service history provided. This history shows expenditures of some £8000 and includes major work to the automatic transmission, engine and bodywork.
The car has good oil pressure, drives very well and has just had a new MOT test certificate issued. It is currently in the workshop undergoing a full service and some attention to minor issues such as non-functioning dash bulbs and a noisy prop shaft UJ.
The car would be very well suited to someone who wanted undertake a rolling restoration project. The exterior bodywork will require some attention and the interior would benefit from restoration of the leather trim and woodwork. However nothing stands out as requiring immediate attention and the car could simply be enjoyed over a prolonged period if desired. The Daimler V8 saloon is finally stepping out from the Jaguar shadow and values are increasing. This car provides an ideal opportunity to experience Daimler motoring and the brilliant Edward Turner designed V8 engine.
Daimler Majestic Major - Rolling chassis - £Offers
This car is not an economic restoration as it would require a level of work that would far outstrip its value. However they were truly fantastic cars - limousines with sports car performance and if you are restoring one, it is a valuable source of parts. Much of the chrome is in good condition. The seats and instruments are largely intact. The chassis and suspension appear to be sound and the glass is all useable.
I do not wish to break this car and will accept offers only for the whole car. Please call me to discuss.
