Daimler 250 V8
Smooth class and refinement
Often (wrongly) seen as a poor relation to it’s Jaguar Mk2 look-alike, the Daimler V8 is a classy, refined classic in its own right. Our’s was an amazing example of this iconic car: as well as being in outstanding condition, this vehicle came with an unequalled provenance, fully traceable three owner history and MOT’s supporting just an incredible 38,000 miles!
Following an easy first 29,000 miles in the small and traffic-free island of Jersey, the car came back to the mainland and was reconditioned by its third owner. During this time, the file revealed a mass of invoices and photographs having the engine and gearbox fully reconditioned by specialists engineers, including, pistons, crankshaft, re-bore, cylinder heads, carbs and much more - all documented.
The exterior coachwork was outstanding, having had a “glass out” repaint in September 2016 by a multi award winning bodyshop in London. The end result of all this care and attention? A fabulous car that drives superbly and draws a small gathering everywhere it stops. These models are becoming very scarce and very collectable - this V8’s new owner bought this lovely car at just the right time!
