1968 Daimler V8 250 Automatic. Opalescent Grey with Blue leather upholstery. The V8-250 is a four-door saloon which was produced by The Daimler Company Limited in the United Kingdom from 1962 to 1969. It was the first Daimler car to be based on a Jaguar platform, the first Daimler car with a unit body, and the last Daimler car to feature a Daimler engine after the company was bought from the Birmingham Small Arms Company by Jaguar Cars in 1960. The engine is the hemispherical head V8 designed by Edward Turner and first used in the Daimler SP250 sports car. Produced from October 1967 to 1969, the V8-250 was a minor face-lift and re-labelling of the 2.5 V8 saloon and differed in relatively small details: "slimline" bumpers and over-riders (shared with the Jaguar 240/340 relabelled at the same time), negative-earth electrical system, an alternator instead of a dynamo and twin air cleaners, one for each carburettor. Other new features included padding over the instrument panel, padded door cappings and ventilated leather upholstery, reclinable split-bench front seats and a heated rear window. Power steering and overdrive were optional extras. This car is absolutely stunning having received a restoration in 2014 by Alscot Park Garage with invoices on file for over £22,500. The Daimler has been cherished by its previous owner and is only for sale due to a change in circumstances. No expense was spared with the restoration and the car is one of the best examples we have seen. The car benefits from power steering which makes driving an absolute pleasure and the V8 engine has plenty of get up and go to keep up with modern traffic. We have a large history folder of bills, invoices and old mot certificates as well as the original dealer wallet, owners handbook and lubrication chart. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted. Free delivery within the U.K. mainland.
