Lot No. 270 - 1966 Daimler 2.5 V8

Not sold

A usable Daimler 2.5 V8 in need of a light refurbishment. This lovely classic was previously restored back in 1994 at a cost of around £12,000 but has had very little use until recently. Offered with a fresh MoT certificate until February 2017, this is an original UK supplied car that was first registered in England in April 1966, before being exported to Ireland in 2007 and recently re-imported to the UK. This car will be fully UK re-registered before the sale. We are told this car will need some light restoration. Said to start up first time, and to drive and stop well, this car has spent some time outside and displays a little surface rust on the dark Green paintwork and on the brightwork with the exception of the chrome wire wheels which look good. The interior is complete and the Cream leather seats have no holes or rips, however the dashboard veneers are flaking in places and could do with a little tlc. These 2.5ltr Daimlers were more powerful and handled better than their 2.4ltr MkII cousins, and despite being better equipped and having that fluted grille and Daimler badge, they have remained better value.
