Delightful Daimler at Charterhouse online Classic Car Auction

A 1965 Daimler V8 250 estimated at £18,000-20,000, which has had a vast sum spent on restoration recently, is included in the  Charterhouse online only auction of classic and vintage cars, on Saturday May 30th at 12 noon.

“It is beautifully presented and represents a much less expensive proposition than buying an equivalent Jaguar Mk II.” Commented Matthew Whitney. “With its silky smooth automatic gearbox and great paint combination of gunmetal grey with a red leather interior this delightful Daimler is ready for another 55 years use!”

The Daimler V8 250, which is often mistaken for a Jaguar Mk I & II which was popularised in the classic Inspector Morse and Endeavour TV series, has covered just 12 miles since an engine and gearbox rebuilt and is yet to be run-in, something which many modern motorists do not need to do on their new cars.

It also benefits with the walnut dash and door capping’s all being restored, a new wiring loom and headlining installed, along with new chrome wire wheels and tyres.

Now ready to take to the road again the owner, who also owns a Jaguar E-Type amongst other classics, has decided he can drive only one car at a time and decided to let the Daimler go to a new enthusiast at the Charterhouse specialist online classic car auction ending on April 9th @ 12 noon.

Charterhouse are now accepting further entries for this auction, and for their live online classic and vintage motorcycle auction on May 6th.
