by Charterhouse Auctioneers




A 1967 Daimler V8 250 saloon, registration number XNK 854F, chassis number P1K1322BW, engine number 7K1350, Bermuda blue. When Jaguar acquired Daimler they inherited the recently designed Hemi V8 by Edward Turner. Jaguar took the opportunity to create an upmarket version of their Mk II instilling the V8 into the unitary construction body shell of the Mk II making it the first Daimler not to incorporate a separate chassis. With performance and economy both better than the entry level 2.4 litre but not encroaching on the performance of the larger engined 3.4 or 3.8 variants it filled the luxury compact saloon slot nicely. This example finished in rare Bermuda blue has received quite a lot of restoration work during the ownerships of its previous two custodians prior to our vendor acquiring it last year. There are photographs on file of the Daimler receiving body repairs prior to a bare metal respray. There are further receipts for an automatic gearbox overhaul, a new petrol tank and carpets, carburettor service and a recent full service amongst others. The Daimler is now only being offered for auction due to our vendor’s ill health and will be accompanied to auction with a large history file. V5C, MOT and tax exempt See illustrations
