SUMMARY

A rare Daimler V8-250 fitted with a manual gearbox and overdrive, one of only 200.

DESCRIPTION

  • Introduced in October 1967, the V8-250 was a minor facelift of the long-running 2.5 V8 saloon
  • Differences were minor; slimline bumpers and over-riders, negative-earth electrics, an alternator, padded door caps, reclining split-bench front seats and a heated rear window
  • Finished in Topaz Gold with a red leather interior and fitted with wire wheels
  • Rare factory-fitted manual gearbox with factory-fitted overdrive which works on fourth gear
  • Engine rebuild in 1995 and more recent restoration/refresh (see Condition Report)
  • From 11 years current ownership with 82,434 miles indicated. MOT until January 2025 issued with 'no advisories'
  • Large history file which includes the original Daimler V8-250 Periodic Maintenance vouchers and MOTs back to 1980 at 43,289 miles
  • It's a funny old world, a Mk2 Jaguar in similar condition would be guided at least twice as much
