1969 Daimler V8-250 Desirable manual example with overdrive

[ translate ]

Lot details Registration No: SNV 860G Chassis No: 1K4954DN MOT: February 2025 In current ownership since 2007 and serviced annually during this time Desirable manual gearbox example with overdrive, and is believed to pleasingly retain its original interior Just 84,500 miles recorded on the odometer which is believed to be genuine Offered with a large history file including MOT history back to the 1970s Built from 1962 through to 1969, the Daimler 2.5 V8/V8 250 was the first car to be produced by the marque on the Jaguar platform, and the last Daimler to feature its own engine. As a derivative of the all-conquering MkII Jaguar although its fluted grille and more luxurious interior gave the car an air of exclusivity. Its name was drawn from its Edward Turner-designed engine - a lightweight, eight-cylinder 2,548cc V8 shared with the SP 250. Production continued until the manufacture of all MkII derivatives ceased in 1969, by which time some 17,620 of the Daimler version had been made, making it the best-selling car in Daimler’s history. Chassis 1K4954DN was manufactured in 1969 and is a home market car, being first registered in the United Kingdom on the 13th of March that year. A notably late example with the pretty single-blade bumper, this desirable four-speed manual transmission with overdrive V8-250 is finished in Sable paintwork and is believed to pleasingly retain its original interior, trimmed in Tan leather upholstery. Showing a recorded mileage of some 84,500 miles, this mileage is believed genuine with supporting evidence back to the mid-1970s. Purchased into the vendor's ownership in 2007, the V8-250 has been MOT’d and serviced annually while with the vendor and has been maintained by Heritage Car Company of Malton. Work completed by the Heritage Car Company most recently included a renovated brake system including a reconditioned brake servo and a new master cylinder in 2024; renewed points, condenser, coil, spark plugs, and wiring repairs in 2023; and new tyres provided in 2022. Covering some 12,000 miles while in the vendor's ownership, the Daimler has been used on several Daimler Owner's Club rallies including trips to Cornwall, Scotland, and The Netherlands. Offered with a large history file that includes MOT history back to the mid-1970s (and which illustrates very few advisories in recent years); a current MOT certificate without any advisories until February 2025; previous tax discs; a large collection of invoices; the original operations manual, price list, car colour guide, and sales literature; and a current V5C document showing just four former keepers.
