1968 DAIMLER V8 250 2.5 SOLD

This great looking car has had a full restoration inside and out and puts a smile on your face when driving this head turning vehicle around town .
It comes with a long list of bills and service history and we certainly recommend coming to view this in person as you will not be disappointed.
Here is a little bit of information on the Daimler and its origins:
The V8-250 is a four-door saloon which was produced by The Daimler Company Limited in the United Kingdom from 1962 to 1969. It was the first Daimler car to be based on a Jaguar platform, the first Daimler car with a unit body, and the last Daimler car to feature a Daimler engine after the company was bought from the Birmingham Small Arms Company by Jaguar Cars in 1960. The engine is the hemispherical head V8 designed by Edward Turner and first used in the Daimler SP250 sports car.

Daimler's development of the 2.5-litre saloon was initially given few resources; the first prototype was based on an old Jaguar Mark 1 uni body that had been abandoned outside one of the factory buildings after having been modified for suspension experiments. Once the concept had been proven, a new prototype based on a Mark 2 body shell was built, The Daimler V8 engine was more compact and lighter than the Jaguar XK6 engine used in the Mark 2, and weighed approximately 1 long cwt (51 kg) less. Spring and damper settings were revised accordingly to suit the altered weight distribution. The engine sump had to be redesigned to fit between the Mark 2's front suspension units and around one of its cross members, new exhaust manifolds were designed to fit in the engine bay, the water pump and cooling fan were relocated, and different air filters were used. The cylinder head fasteners were changed from studs to set bolts to allow the heads to be removed while the engine was still in the car. The radiator fan was driven through a viscous coupling unit that slipped progressively with increased engine speed, which reduced noise from the fan. The Daimler's Borg-Warner Type 35 automatic transmission was smaller and lighter than the units used on the Mark 2 and had strong engine braking in each gear range.

This V8 250 has been lovingly looked after by previuos owners and has had a huge amount of mechanical work during the yeras including a full nut and bolt engine rebuild, all backed up by a comprehensive box of invoices/paperwork.

Finance available, Fresh MOT, Part exchange welcome, Please call for an appointment we like to greet each customer personally.
