"My recent purchase of a classic car from Waimak Cars, makes me want to share my experience. Jesmond and Gloria are fabulous to deal with. Very professional, and obliging.They love their classic cars with a passion! From their place to my door, has been a fabulous, no fuss experience. Buying sight unseen was a bit nerve wracking but the car, and everything I was told, turned out to be a true and honest record of it all. (Complete with "Goodie Bag")☺ I would not hesitate in recommending anyone to this business."Carol Johnson, Palmerston North, New Zealand
The 2.5 V8/V8-250 is an automobile which was produced by The Daimler Motor Company Limited in the United Kingdom from 1962 to 1967. It was the last Daimler car to feature a Daimler engine after the company was acquired by Jaguar Cars in 1960. The engine is the hemispherical head V8 designed by Edward Turner and first used in the Daimler SP250 (Dart) sports car.
Essentially a re badged Jaguar Mark 2 fitted with Daimler's particularly smooth 2.5-litre V8 engine and drive-train, a special Daimler fluted (furrowed brow) grille and rear number plate surround, distinctive wheel trims, badges, and interior details (such as a split-bench front seat and a black enamel steering wheel) and special interior and exterior colours with its soft V8 burble.
A casual observer, though not its driver, might mistake it for a jaguar Mark 2. Most cars (like this one) were fitted with power-assisted steering but it was optional. Automatic transmission was standard, manual with or without overdrive became an option in 1967.
This car has full service history from 06/82. In this time the car had two owners. It is a pity that the first three owners on record did not keep earlier records as if they did, this car would have had full service history from new.
In recent years, the motor and transmission were fully reconditioned, transmission, power steering was installed (recently overhauled). Car was originally Dove Grey and was repainted in a Silver Grey. Upholstery was restored. S/S wire wheels were added so the car today is in excellent condition and why it drives exceptionally well.
Car will be sold with a six month WOF and twelve month registration.
