This car is now available for a negotiated sale, with offers welcomed around the £9,999 mark. A stunning Daimler V8 250 in Blue with matching leather interior, further details and images are available on www.TradeClassics.com Mark has owned this car for just under a year, having wanted one since he was a little lad. Sadly circumstance has meant that he needs to part with the car in order to help care for his mother, otherwise this would probably be a car that he would keep for life. He’s not had that much of a chance to enjoy the car really, but has ensure that it is running as it should do and checked over by a local specialist to ensure the car is ready for sale. In his own words, Mark says the car is “a delight to drive“. I know exactly what he means from my own experiences with a V8 250, I would always have a smile on my face driving one of these. EXTERIOR The car is finished in a beautiful deep shade of blue, and Mark tells us the car was treated to a restoration at some point in the 90’s. The pictures tell this tale, with the car looking stunning. Bodywork The car even though exempt from needing one, has continued to have its MOT actioned every year over the past 5 years, and has passed with the current MOT ending in August. Mark tells us that the bodywork is in good condition with some tiny blemishes/bubbles on a couple of areas of the car. Paint The blue paint looks deep and strong from the pictures provided, and as mentioned the car was subject to a restoration which included a re-spray in the 90’s. Glass and Trim The glass and brightwork look to be in good order from the images provided, no overt signs of corrosion. INTERIOR This V8 250 is finished in blue leather to match the exterior, a fine choice. Mark will be providing some photographs of the interior. Seats and Carpets Mark describes the interior as being in good condition, with leather upholstery showing its age with some characteristic cracking that you would expect. There is a small section of the front passenger seat that could benefit from some re-stitching where the leather has come away from the piping. Dashboard The dials on the dash look in good condition from the picture that Mark has provided, and they appear to have probably been refreshed when the car was restored. MECHANICS The Daimler has an MOT until August 2018, and is road ready. As mentioned before, Mark has only had the car for less than a year and so it hasn’t been serviced, but has been checked over to ensure everything is in correct working order. Engine and Gearbox The Daimler is fitted with the 3 speed automatic gearbox, and of course the lovely 2.5L V8. The engine pulls strongly and can keep up with the traffic without issue. Mark tells us that the car goes through the gears as you would expect with a slightly noticeable gear-change from 2nd to 3rd when the car is cold. Suspension and Brakes Mark has said that the car handles the road without issue and brakes working smoothly too. The Drive The car steers and brakes easily, and keeps up with modern traffic. As mentioned, Mark says the car is a delight to drive. Electrics and Other No issues.
