1969 Daimler V8 250

No Reserve


From a deceased estate; current owner 9 years; previous owner 13 years; Coombs spats; wire wheels; very presentable

First registered in January 1969, this Daimler V8 250 was acquired by our vendor via a Silverstone Auction in May 2013. There is very little history with the car prior to this, the auction catalogue description at the time stating that it had been owned by the vendor for the previous 13 years.

It was further described as being ‘very solid and structurally excellent with no major corrosion in the floor, boot well, arches and suspension mounts and good panel fit’. The catalogue went on to say that it drove well with a ‘healthy engine’, good oil pressure, smooth gearbox and effective brakes, the mileage at this point being 86,451. The paintwork and the interior were also referred to in complimentary fashion.

An invoice shows that the car had been serviced in September 2009 at 85,823 miles when the front brake calipers were also renewed. There are also 23 old MOTs to show that the car has always been in regular light use, the mileage rising from 71,723 in 1993 to 90,276 in 2017.  Other invoices show routine upkeep and servicing during the current 9-year ownership including a refurbished steering box in 2018. The odometer currently shows 91,195 miles.

As you can see in the photos, the car does indeed look very presentable with decent paintwork, a nice interior, wire wheels and sporty Coombs spats at the rear. Starting promptly and running well as we have moved it around on site, with good 40psi oil pressure, it is on offer here from a deceased estate at no reserve so the best bid takes it home.
