1965 Daimler 250 V8 Saloon For Sale

This beautifully presented Daimler V8250 was first registered in February 1965 and has recently been with one of our long term customers in Norwich. CLJ 926C is a very impressive example having been subject of a seven year rebuild from 2001 and more recently has had a programme of work totalling £15,000. The Daimler is now offered onto the market in lovely, presentable condition and has arrived with us having been in recent regular use.

When undergoing a major restoration in the early 2000's the engine was removed from the Daimler and stripped down by engineering specialists in Warwickshire. The cylinder heads were re-conditioned, re-grinding to the crank and camshaft was carried out and bores checked and honed for correct piston clearance. The engine was treated to a new set of main and big end bearings and fitted with a new oil pump, water pump, timing chain and carburettors were rebuilt and re-fitted. An automatic transmission specialists rebuilt the torque converter and further mechanical work included new springs, shock absorbers, new bushes, steering swivels, wheel bearings and new rear springs and shocks were also fitted. The braking system was overhauled with new calipers, brake discs and pads, all new brake pipes and a new master cylinder and brake servo. A modern radiator core was fitted and also a new heater matrix, all new coolant hoses and new fuel tank and pipes were fitted.

The body was treated to a new cross member, outriggers, ‘crows feet', two new front wings, various inner panels and foot wells, new jacking points, rear spring cages and new rear wheel arches and a set of spats. The body was then prepared for paintwork and treated to a full re-paint in Ivory. The interior was then re-trimmed with new leather upholstery, new headlining, door cards and carpets. Since completion of this work less than 2500 miles has been covered in the Daimler and in 2017 further work has been carried out. Front and rear bumpers have been re-chromed, all the interior woodwork has been removed and professionally re-veneered and polished and further paintwork has been carried out to ensure a stunning, first class paint finish. CLJ 926C has been finished to a very high standard with a gorgeous external finish and the interior is superb in every respect. The Daimler has had very little use in recent years so in early 2018 had a further program of expenditure to include new stainless steel exhaust system, electronic igntion, new fuel pump, re-conditioned rev counter, handbrake pads, front brake pads, brake pistons, brake flexi hoses, brake master cylinder, speedo cable and angle drive, all fluids changed, new spark plugs and uprated headlamps. With a superb rebuilt V8 engine, lovely changing automatic gearbox with rebuilt torque converter and the thousands of pounds worth of new suspension and braking components, the cars offers great value and is a car ideal for regular use and long distance touring.
