1968 Daimler 250 V8

This remarkably original Daimler has covered a lovely low mileage of 66,000. Still retaining the original colours of Opalescent Golden Sand with Cinnamon leather, SRE 639G was sold new by Peppers of Hanley Ltd, Stoke on Trent and dispatched on the 11th October 1968 with power assisted steering.

This is a superb driving car that shows all the indications of a careful owner. The mileage of 66,000 is entirely in keeping with the lovely original trim, particularly the leather seats. We have the original service book for the Daimler which records the first four services with the supplying dealer. The Daimler was serviced by Peppers of Hanley Ltd at 1175, 3084, 9672 and 13939 miles and a replacement engine fitted under guarantee at 3800 miles. The Daimler was with the first owner for 28 years and was actually off the road for 20 years until 2001. We first owned the Daimler in 2002 and know the car very well.

The Daimler is driving superbly and last year was subject of some basic re-commissioning work. SRE 639G was fitted with a new SS exhaust system, new alternator control, new brake reservoir and brakes were stripped, cleaned and reset. The slave cylinder was stripped and cleaned and new water hoses and speedo cable fitted. The exhaust manifold was rebuilt with new gaskets and some work on the carburettors carried out. The Daimler was put through MOT and a few hundred faultless miles covered since. Mechanically the Daimler is very strong with a nice changing automatic gearbox and strong engine holding excellent oil pressure. The power steering makes the Daimler very pleasant to drive and it has proven to be a very reliable, enjoyable car to own.

SRE 639G presents beautifully with lovely straight panels and a stunning deep high quality paint finish. The chrome is very original with some pitting yet still presentable. The interior is delightful making this a fabulous, largely original car that is ready to be enjoyed.
