Cars for sale
From time to time, customers ask me to use my website to try and sell cars for them. I am happy to do this on a commission basis and on the understanding that I do not guarantee the cars.
1965 Daimler V8 Saloon - £14,000
This car drives very well, has good oil pressure and does not smoke. It is currently in the workshop undergoing a full service, some fault rectification and will be sold with a fresh MOT test certificate. Because we are in the process of renovating the brakes, distributor, carburettors and charging system, I am not yet in a position to take photographs of the whole car.
The car has reasonable paint but a few spots will require attention before too long. The interior woodwork is in fair condition and this car has the wooden fascia top and door capping that were deleted in later models.
The interior is finished in grey leather which would benefit from cleaning and renovation. The odometer shows 87 thousand miles but there is insufficient supporting service history to guarantee this. The car has had some major engine work undertaken by specialist engine builders in Poole including new pistons, bearings and attention to the cylinder heads It is possible this work was carried out in 1989. The car has a stainless steel exhaust and features S type uprights with 3 pot calipers.
Overall this is a solid basis for a rolling restoration. You could certainly enjoy using it during the summer and then perhaps spend the winter months attending to some of the cosmetic issues. These are superb long distance touring cars that drive quietly, ride comfortably and in Daimler form, are even reasonably economical.
1966 Daimler V8 Saloon - £ 11,000
Another good saloon, this time in Sherwood Green with suede green leather trim.
This car is well known to me and drives well. It has PAS and radio, a new MOT and has benefited from recent attention to the brakes. The Vredenstein Sprint tyres are relatively unworn. The interior trim and door cards require replacing and the wooden dashboard and door cappings would benefit from repolishing. The paintwork is in fair condition but the car will require attention to the door bottoms in due course.
This is another car which could be enjoyed during the Summer and then restored progressively as time and budget permit.
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.
