Description

1968 Daimler 250 V8 Saloon.

Chassis number: P1K2993BW

Registration Number: UPF827F

Multiple concours winner: This beautiful Daimler was restored to nut & bolt new perfection & has won prizes at several dozen shows since with certificates galore to back this up. Now being sold due to the advanced age & ill health of the current custodian whom has shown the car & been its custodian for many years.

The car has covered some 89,000 miles from new in the hands of three owners & has always resided in Norfolk & Lincolnshire. It is finished in its original colour of Opalescent Silver Grey with blue leather seating to the interior all in concours condition. The car is fitted with chrome wire wheels all round & a Borg Warner automatic gear box along with power steering.

A large box with simply masses of paperwork comes with the car. Far too copious to photograph in its entirety; it contains numerous bills & detailed owners records over the years of mileages covered & expenditures undertaken. There are also assorted magazine articles & photographs of the car over the years.

Under the bonnet the engine bay is simply pristine & about as original as they come. The V8 engine purrs into life instantly & is a paragon of smoothness being almost imperceptible in its running. On the road it pulls strongly with seamless changes from the automatic gear box. Indeed I rate these Daimlers as being well ahead of the equivalent Jaguar Mark 2 cars in terms of refinement & the simple pleasure of driving one.

Not much more need to be said of this car as it is as close to perfect as any I have seen. It is ready to be shown & no doubt win more prizes for the new lucky owner.
