Daimler 250 V8 1966


Specifications


Description

The classic Daimler 250 V8 is a charming car, as luxurious on the road as a cruise ship is at sea.

We bring you here a most sumptuous Daimler V8 250.

Superficially, a Daimler 250 is a badge-engineered Jaguar Mk2. Only a discerning car buff would clock the moulded Daimler grille in place of the Jaguar mascot. But the Daimler isn't a leaping cat with a few changed spots, and should be celebrated as a big beast in its own right. It is powered by the last authentic Daimler engine after Jaguar's takeover – which is not only a dazzling piece of engineering, but imbues the car with a quite different character.

  • Low Ownership
  • Low Mileage
  •  matching numbers.
  • We bought this car completely factory original still in factory paint, so understandably paint was tired in some areas. We stripped and repainted in original colour where necessary, and polished it.
  • Windscreen, door rubbers all new.
  • Interior was completely original when we bought it, but tired (leather hard etc). Pulled everything out and started again - new carpet, new leather, recushioned seats, new roof lining, new wind lace, new door panels, dyed all interior, except for door cards.
  • All Wood pulled out and professionally reveneered.
  • Mechanically, car got a good once over by Jaguar Specialist, mainly due to lack of use. Radiator, new gaskets, replaced hoses, tested all interior lights, switches and made them all work. Changed all bushes, plugs, brakes, suspension bushes etc plus its just been serviced.
  • Almost $30K was spent on mechanical matters, interior, new door and windscreen rubbers, paintwork, new tyres, new chrome wire wheels etc.
  • Car is now in A1 condition. Starts, runs and drives perfectly. Not a rattle or squeak. And looks awesome inside and out. 
  • One of the finest examples in New Zealand.

A really posh way to travel – this car is an astounding find. Beautiful to be chauffer driven in.

An inspirational Daimler in Mint condition throughout. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Car will be sold warranted and registered if sold in New Zealand.
