1966 Daimler V8 250 Saloon For Sale by Auction

Sound base with a lovely purr; recent £5,000 engine and mechanical overhaul; automatic with nicely patinated interior that offers an ideal opportunity Launched in 1962, the Daimler 2.5-Litre V8 was one of the finest cars of its era being a more refined and luxurious version of the highly rated Jaguar MkII. Its crowning glory was the superb Ed Turner-designed all-alloy V8 that had made its debut in the Daimler Dart. This musical and muscular unit developed a silky smooth 140bhp and 155lb/ft of torque which gave the car a top speed of 115mph. Finished in bronze with a nicely patinated brown leather interior, this car was registered in March 1966 and comes with a good history comprising a V5C, nine old MOTs and old-style log book showing four previous owners. The car had been standing for a number of years before being thoroughly recommissioned and MOT’d in 2010 by Radlett Classic Cars of Borehamwood, Herts after its initial assessment in Autumn 2009. The work included a full strip and rebuild of the braking system, stripping both cylinder heads to be refurbished and skimmed, new valve springs, gaskets etc after finding they were corroded around the water jacket inlets. This cost some £4,390. The car returned again March 2013 for further rectification to the power steering and windscreen wiper assembly at a cost of £503. There are further invoices on file which also includes the original service book with nine stamps, the first at 506 miles by Stratstone Ltd in March ’66, the last by Willets Ltd of Eastbourne in March 1980 at 13,279 miles. Look beyond the cosmetics and faded paint and focus instead on what has already been done. It started and ran as it should at the time of our rather wet visit, sounding very sweet and looks the ideal ‘use and improve’ example with bags of character and appeal. *** Please note: The vehicles included in this auction are not available to purchase from Brightwells before the sale.*** Estimate £6,000 - £8,000 This car will be sold at the Brightwells Classic Car Auction in Leominster commencing at 11am on Wednesday 4th March 2020 along with many other classic vehicles, some at no reserve.
