1969 Daimler V8250

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 the button, ready to go and in strong mechanical order throughout.

PEL 603G has recently been treated to a full body strip down and re-paint in its original colour. The Daimler arrived with very original paintwork and usual prone areas were beginning to show weakness. Having never had major bodywork, the car required work to the door bottoms and areas in need of work were treated to new metal work. The underside was found to be structurally excellent and remarkably original, clearly being waxoyled from an early age and now showing the benefit of this. The bodywork today presents in exceptional condition with stunning straight panels, a gleaming high quality paint finish and nicely aged chrome finishes the car nicely. The cost of the recent bodywork and paintwork alone would cost in excess of £10,000 and has been all carried out within our own workshop and bodyshop.

This true time warp is as honest as one could find, it's genuine, original and has will suit someone looking for a beautiful, usable Daimler that has not required a major rebuild and has been carefully owned and well maintained over the past 46 years. PEL 603G will be supplied to its next owner with a full 12 months MOT, service, PDI check and warranty and can be driven and enjoyed with confidence.
