- Sold new and first registered to a lady in Jersey, Channel Islands, in October 1965, and showing just 35,000 miles on the odometer - Imported into England in 1993 and only two recorded keepers since - Restored in the early 1990's, engine and gearbox rejuvenated in 2004, and repainted again in 2016 This wonderfully coloured Daimler V8 250 was first registered in Jersey in October 1965 as J53, latterly changing to J14907 at some point, all according to the Certificate of Origin on file from April 1993. It is unknown how long the lady first owner retained the car, but in May 1993 it was registered to a lady in Chippenham, Wiltshire. The last recorded change of ownership occurred in December 2000 when the car was registered to a gentleman in Eastleigh, Hampshire. Before the car ventured to England, dated photographs reveal the car was comprehensively restored in the early 1990's, and our vendor informs us that the car received more restorative work including a "glass-out repaint in September 2016 by a multi-award winning bodyshop in London". Between these occasions, invoices from 2004 in the superbly presented history folder show the engine having received significant repairs (piston

The Daimler 2.5-V8 (or 2½ litre V8 ) was launched late in 1962, and was essentially a rebadged Jaguar Mk2, but fitted with Daimler's 2.5 litres V8 engine; aside from the engine, fluted (furrowed brow) grille and rear number plate surround, badges, drive-train and some interior details (such as a split-bench front seat and a black enamel steering wheel) the Daimler 2.5- was otherwise indistinguishable from the Jaguar Mark 2. The 2.5-V8 was the first Jaguar designed car to have the Daimler badge. The Daimler V8 engine was more compact and therefore lighter than the six cylinder engine used in the Jaguar Mark 2, and weighed approximately 50 kg ("1 cwt") less. Spring and damper settings were revised accordingly to suit the altered weight distribution. At the end of 1965, the final drive ratio had been changed from 4.55:1 to 4.27:1, addressing complaints that the car as launched in 1963 had needed to exceed its recommended rev limit in order to reach its top speed, with a corresponding penalty in fuel consumption and engine noise and wear. The testers found the car refined and well equipped with efficient, if rather heavy, brakes. The engine and transmission were felt to be well matched
We are delighted to offer this unrepeatable opportunity to purchase a very special Daimler Dart that has spent 47 years with the same family, verified by 'The Daimler & Lanchester Owners Club Ltd'. 7751 NC was purchased new by a Manchester City Centre based Insurance Company, L Rigby & Co Ltd, Duchy Chambers, Clarence Street. For the first two years it was driven by Mr Williamson and in 1963 he purchased the Daimler from the firm. The Dart stayed within the same family until 2010, being registered in the Canford Cliffs area of Poole, Dorset with a Miss Williamson from 1989 to 2010. Up to 2010, when it was taken off the road, the Daimler was kept in total original condition and a comprehensive history file details extensive maintenance since the late 1980's from Michael Riley Engineering, a very well respected name in the SP250 World who was also the Bournemouth Branch Secretary of 'The Daimler & Lanchester Owner's Club. For over two decades the Daimler was maintained by the marque expert and this contributed to the fact the car has survived so well considering it had been kept in fairly regular use most of its life. In 2010 the Daimler was sold, having essentially being driven by t
The Jaguar 420 (pronounced "four-twenty") and its Daimler Sovereign equivalent were introduced at the October 1966 London Motor Show and produced for two years as the ultimate expression of a series of "compact sporting saloons" offered by Jaguar throughout that decade, all of which shared the same wheelbase. Developed from the Jaguar S-Type, the 420 cost around £200 more than that model and effectively ended buyer interest in it, although the S-Type continued to be sold alongside the 420/Sovereign until both types were supplanted by the Jaguar XJ6 late in 1968. The Jaguar 420 should not be confused with the larger Jaguar 420G. The 420/Sovereign traces its origins back to the Jaguar Mark 2, which was introduced in 1959 and sold through most of the 1960s. The Mark 2 had a live rear axle and was powered by the XK six-cylinder engine first used in the Jaguar XK120 of 1948. The Mark 2 was available in 2.4, 3.4 and 3.8-litre engine capacities. In 1968 the Daimler DS420 limousine began to be produced, carrying a similarly styled grille to the Sovereign and using the 4.2-litre Jaguar engine in twin carburettor form and also undergoing final assembly at Jaguar's Browns Lane factory in C
About this Daimler Double Six First registered August 1977 to Barber Greene Ltd, for their chairman to be chauffeured in. Barber Greene covered 35,000 miles before selling it in late 1979 to the Bank of Boston for their president to be chauffeured in. The Bank of Boston only covered a further 8,000 miles in the eighteen years that they owned it before selling it on to Spearpoint Bland, a London insurance company who kept it for five years. Since 2002 this fabulous Daimler has only had two private owners bringing it to a total of 5. As the supplied Heritage Certificate confirms, this Daimler Double Six is presented in its original colours of almost flawless Amethyst with Black Everflex Roof and dark Olive Hides and Natural Carpets. It really is in as close to mint condition as we have ever seen. As this was the top of the range it is fitted with everything possible including the Daimler accoutrements of individual reading lamps and armrests. There is a comprehensive history file with this car containing numerous detailed invoices, the original service book and Daimler Unipart Passport and 25 old MOTs indicating that the low mileage is correct The last MOT was issued on 1st October 2
About this Daimler V8 250 Launched late in 1962 the 2.5 V8 was the first Jaguar designed car to have the Daimler badge; it was essentially a rebadged Jaguar Mark 2 fitted with Daimler's Edward Turner designed lightweight 2.5-litre V8 engine and drive-train, that had been proven in the Daimler SP250 (Dart) sports car. Exterior details were a Daimler fluted grille and rear number plate surround, distinctive wheel trims and badges. Interior details included a split-bench front seat from the Jaguar Mark 1 and a black enamel steering wheel. Most cars were fitted with power-assisted steering but it was optional. Automatic transmission was standard; manual, with or without overdrive, became an option in 1967. A casual observer, though not its driver, might mistake it for a Jaguar Mark 2. The Daimler's stance on the road was noticeably different from a Mark 2. Three years after its launch, a Daimler 2½-litre V8 saloon with automatic transmission tested by the Britain's Autocar magazine in May 1966 had a top speed of 112 mph and could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 13.6 seconds and has a distinct V8 burble. Our example first registered August 1968 (G Reg) is in very good overall condition and

£19950 Daimler was the first British motor vehicle manufacture established in 1893 and was renown for producing luxury motor cars. Bought by Jaguar in 1960 they continued to produce Daimlers in their Jaguar MK 2 bodies and were pitched as high end luxury motorcars. The 250 V8 is essentially a Jaguar MK 2 with the very well engineered SP250 (Dart) engine producing 140 bhp and capable of 110mph. First registered SFD 30F in 1968 and subsequently exported to Guernsey in 2008 and used sparingly. It comes with a comprehensive file, hand book, old buff log book and many MOT certificates dating back to 1976 which shows a mileage then of only 59,000 miles. The vehicle was obviously used very little since 1976 averaging only approximately 275 miles per year. This car has the all the signs of being a well-cared for motor car throughout its life. The V5C states only two owners since 1979. The car has mostly original paint and still is fitted with the wonderful original leather interior. We have recently worked through the mechanicals of the car undertaking works as required. Now a very nice car to look at and a very nice to drive. The car is currently located at our UK store in Dorset. The bod
This car was delivered new in 1984 in the name of Ordnance Services Berlin, the British military equipment services based in Berlin. Assigned to the Royal Corps of Transport , this car was used by various notables including: Duke of Edimburgh, his Serene Highness Prince of Wales, Margaret Thatcher... Â The car was then sold to someone in Berlin and some years later to a gentleman living in Lituania. The car is accident free, and its odometer shows 28,250 Kms from new. It is in excellent original condition. Lituanian papers.
We are delighted to offer this stunning Daimler DB18 Special Sports onto the market. Only 608 of these beautiful cars were ever built and are becoming increasingly harder to find this condition. This particular car was owned by an Essex based Lieutenant Colonel from the late 1970's and around twenty years later the car was exported to Spain. LVF 152 spent many years in Barcelona and was kept as a museum piece. Mileage cannot be guaranteed but previous owners suggest the recorded mileage of 37000 is correct based on the strong mechanical condition and general originality of the vehicle. We also know the Daimler spent many years unused whilst on display in Spain. The Daimler is equipped with its correct six cylinder 2.5 litre overhead valve engine with twin carburettors, fluid flywheel and pre-select gearbox. The Daimler boasts an independent front suspension with wishbones and torsion bars and the rear is operated by a live rear axle with half elliptic springs. The braking system is the four wheel Girling hydro-mechanically operated drums. Coachbuilders Barker built the stunning shaped three seater drophead coupe body and the fast luxury tourer was fitted with a wonderful leather pl

In 1949, the British military was in need of a replacement for their “Dingo” reconnaissance vehicle which had served them well but was getting on in age. They turned back to Daimler, the company responsible for the Dingo, to develop their new scout car. For the new vehicle, Daimler improved upon features that already worked well with the Dingo. A welded steel monocoque chassis was implemented and all of the drivetrain was enclosed inside the cabin for added protection. Like the Dingo before it, the Ferret features traditional rubber tires rather than tank-tracks, making the vehicle more maneuverable and faster on a variety of surfaces. The tires are also specially designed to be able to run flat in case of a puncture. Ferrets were powered by a Rolls Royce B60 4.2 Liter inline six making 130hp at a low 3750 rpm and featured 4wd with coil spring suspension. The Rolls Royce engine was tough and reliable and mated to a 10-speed gearbox (5 forward gears, 5 reverse). The Ferret was quick, maneuverable and tough and proved very popular with militaries around the world. Nearly 5,000 were built in a multitude of variants and remarkably stayed in service all the way up through the 1990’s. This 1958 Ferret is in excellent condition and carries with it a great history. While still in England, the previous owner attended the Goodwood Festival of Speed with it where it was said to have received more attention than any nearby Ferrari. It is well equipped and still retains many original details such as helmets, radios, tools and the original Rolls Royce powerplant. Unlike traditional tanks, the Ferret is totally usable and can be registered for road use. The Ferret’s rubber tires and relatively small size make it an ideal choice for someone seeking their first collectible military vehicle. This Ferret was most recently part of the collection of a Daimler enthusiast who used it regularly and even built a complete replica turret that was fitted with paintball guns. The owners engineered a windscreen washer system to clean the glass in case you took a paintball hit. We can only imagine the stir this would cause at your local paintball field. The Daimler Ferret is a fascinating piece of British military history and a fascinating piece of engineering. It is ready to be enjoyed on or off road and would be welcome at a multitude of classic car or historic military events.
This ultra original Daimler V8250 was first registered on the 6th March 1969 and supplied new in Ascot Fawn with Red trim. The Daimler is totally standard with factory supplied steel wheels, automatic transmission and original leather upholstery. PEL 603G has a recorded mileage of 82000 and is remarkably original still retaining its wonderful, honest original upholstery. From the condition of the trim it clear this is an honest, genuine car that has never been left to deteriorate. From the history with the car we can see it covered 80000 miles from 1969 to 1996 and over the last twenty years it has been annually MOT tested but has covered just 2000 miles being used for short local running. The Daimler has never required restoration and it's clear this is a car that has never required major work. The V8 engine runs superbly holding correct oil pressure, it offers good performance, sounds fabulous. The automatic gearbox changes up and down smoothly and the car handles and performs well. On arrival with us, the Daimler was put through a programme of mechanical work at our Malton Coachwork workshop and was treated to over £2000 of mechanical work. As a result the Daimler is totally on
