There are all the previous MOT'S since I have owner her. She has only covered just over a thousand miles in the last 25 years. Sadly the previous owner passed away and the car was garaged for 15 years until I found her. It was sold to me by the owner's son and the mileage was verified by him. That said it's very obvious the mileage is 100% genuine as all the seats. carpets. headlining are all original and have not been treated or messed around with. If you look closely at the pictures of the exhaust manifold you will see it still has the original paint still on a lot of it.
I had her fitted with new tyres. new battery. a stainless steel exhaust. new brakes and bushes etc. Replaced the nearside petrol tank and pump. She was professionally resprayed 10 years ago now in her original colour just to bring her upto looking her 25. 00 mile status. As far as I am aware she has had no chassis welding or structural work ever done. All the woodwork is original as are her sills wheel arches etc.
Of course at the time of her respray there were some repairs carried out to the bodywork. 15years of storage had taken it's toll with bikes and objects being brushed past the bodywork. There were several dents and scratches on her side panels but no rot was present apart from a little work on the front around the bumper area.
She has to be one of the most original low mileage Daimler's of her time around at the moment.
I have wondered about having the woodwork and carpets etc replaced but I've worried it may distract from her originality so I have decided to offer her up for sale as she currently is. It would then be the new owner's choice to carry out these works if they wish.
To really improve on her current condition I would replace her carpets. replace door rubbers etc. Re polish the interior wood. Replace the offside petrol tank and fuel pump ( I never use this side as I only use the nearside tank. ) On the whole she looks amazing and gets admiring comments wherever we go. Cars like this just done come along very often so grab yourself a piece if original history before it's too late. Viewing welcome before the close of auction.
