Finished in British Racing Green with a Tan interior, OSM 576G was first registered in Scotland in 1968 and thus benefitted from the recently introduced power-assisted steering, negative earth system and power steering of the later cars. The Daimler eventually moved south of the border to Nettleham, Lincolnshire in the 1970s where it remained in the hands of Alan Fawcett for almost thirty years, maintained fastidiously as and when required including the replacement of the jacking points, a full respray in 2000 and the fitting of a stainless steel exhaust system. In 2011, the decision was made to pass the car on to a new custodian moving only a few miles to the home of Michael Erentrant in Harmston, Lincolnshire, another Daimler fanatic and knowledgeable engineer and mechanic. Whilst in his ownership, further improvements were made including an unleaded head upgrade, the fitting of chrome wire wheels, a new brake servo, the fitting of Lumenition Ignition, Autoquip braided brake pipes and a new fuel tank, before being sold on once again in 2015 to our vendor. Within a few weeks of ownership, he realised that whilst he was enjoying every other aspect of his new Daimler, the car's brakes were not filling him with confidence. The solution was a vented brake disc kit with lightweight 4-pot calipers by Fosseway Performance and replacing the original 3/8th discs with 22mm examples transforming the braking to modern-day standards.

A beautifully original example that has clearly been maintained to the highest of standards with some subtle upgrades for modern-day motoring, complete with its spare keys, original handbook, lubrication chart and the service book in its Daimler wallet. The complete tool kit including jack and hammer is in place and a new front and rear carpet set is waiting to be fitted, there are also three boxes of spares to accompany the car. The car has also been issued with a fresh MOT without advisories which is due to expire on 04/10/2021. A superbly original 250 Saloon, on the button and ready for the open road.
