1963 Daimler 2.5 litre V8 automatic
1963 Daimler 2.5 litre V8 automatic saloon in maroon with cream leather interior and factory fitted Webasto sunroof.
One of the very few remaining from the first year of production. Owned by the same family for over 50 years.
Extensive documented history. Stored since 1994.
In the 6 years before it went in to storage, extensive restoration work was professionally carried out including ;
Full engine rebuild ;
Gearbox and torque converter overhaul:
Front and rear suspension rebuild ;
Brake system rebuild:
Leather re conolised;
The body was stripped of fittings and repainted in the original colour;
All chrome replaced;
Door and window rubbers replaced;
New radiator fitted ;
Stainless steel exhaust was fitted.
The car has done 8,000 miles since the rebuild. The engine starts, runs and sounds fine. The bodywork is largely straight but some areas need attention. The leather upholstery is in lovely condition, as is the rest of the car’s interior. The car will need some re-commissioning (brakes, fuel tank etc) and some welding around the front jacking points prior to being driven on the road.
