  • DAIMLER V8 1970 Auto White Petrol 71000

    £14,995 £14,995

    1970 Daimler 250 V8 Automatic. The Daimler 2.5 V8 / V8-250 is a four-door saloon which was produced by The Daimler Company Ltd. from 1962 to 1969 and was the first Jaguar designed car to wear a Daimler badge. To the casual observer, it was essentially a re-badged Jaguar Mk2; however, Daimler's version utilised the 2548cc V8 from the SP250 roadster under the bonnet and it was a good match with the stylish contemporary lines of the Mk2 complemented by the well balanced and torquey power unit. Arguably, the Daimler was a nicer car to drive than the Jaguar thanks to the engine's light weight (51kg less) and compact dimensions, whilst the eight cylinders endowed it with silky flexibility. Cosmetic differences included a Daimler fluted grille, rear number plate surround, distinctive wheel trims, badges, and interior details included a split-bench front seat from the Jaguar Mk1 and a black enamel steering wheel. Special interior and exterior colours could also be specified. 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. The Daimler's Borg-Warner Type 35 automatic transmission was smaller and lighter than the units used on the Mk2 Jaguar and had strong engine braking in each gear range. In April 1964, the Borg-Warner Type 35 automatic transmission was replaced by a D1/D2 type, also by Borg-Warner.;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: ‘slim-line' bumpers and over-riders (shared with the Jaguar 240/340 relabelled at the same time), negative earth electrics, 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 front seats, and a heated rear window. Power steering and overdrive were optional extras.;The car offered for sale here is a V8-250, manufactured in 1969, but first registered on the 15th January 1970, making it one of last examples. Finished in Old English White, with a red leather interior the car presents very well. We have a large history file with the car containing bills, invoices and lots of old MOT's that back up the low mileage of just 70,000. It has been with its last owner for 7 years and he has looked after the car very well. On test drive the Daimler performed just as it should with the V8 making a lovely noise and the auto gearbox changing up and down correctly. All panels are straight and true with correct gaps and the paintwork still displays a good sheen, the red leather upholstery is still in good order with no rips or tears. This car is just waiting to be enjoyed in new hands. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. Viewing is highly recommended and we know you won't be disappointed. All major debit cards accepted. Please contact us for any further information. Delivery can be arranged.

  • Daimler 2500 V8 Saloon '66

    €17,500(£0) €17,500(£0)

    Lowered price from €19.950 -> €17.500 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 tra
