Technical specifications, photos and description:
Absolutely stunning Daimler 250 V8 column shift without a clutch foot pedal. I can not emphasise how nice this car is to be in and drive. Many of the usual niggles associated with Daimler 250s are not present on this one. It has a quiet dynamo and no rot on the floor or sills. The engine is as smooth as silk. a little smokey on occasion but its more fuel set up than oil. It has a new MOT and is ready to be enjoyed. This car is really beautiful. the exterior is a fantastic Champagne gold colour which suits the car very well. The paint is excellent for the most part. although there are some slight imperfections conducive of age and use. The worst part being a little bit of bubbling on the rear off side wing on the top. the odd little mark on the tailgate. it is not noticeable in some lights. you really have to look. Other than this the finish is glass like and polishes to a mirror shine. The sills and underneath are rock solid. engine bay is fantastic. Recent 4 new outriggers and jacking points. The engine is smooth as can be. as is the gearbox. The interior has a delicious patina. I really would not change a thing. The leather is supple and soft without tears but some age related cracks. the top of the dash. main facia and wooden door trims are all almost perfect. It has a good headlining also. Door gaps are good. sill plates look nice as I know they can look tatty and have scrapes from badly fitted or sagging doors. The chrome is generally solid. worst affected by the elements over the last few decades would be the wheel caps. The outer rings are almost new looking though. so just the centre pieces. The bumpers polish up well. the light surrounds are like new. the rest of the chrome has some pitting but is well above average. I must say I am being hyper critical with chrome as I know people are funny about it as it is expensive to renew or have re-chromed. There is a good history. including the daimler workshop manual. owners manual. 2 folders worth. which includes receipts from the UK and some from Ireland. Currently on Irish plates. was on a UK plate. still has them in the boot. its a cool registration GGY922C It is free to change back and will most likely be re assigned to GGY922C. There is 12 months UK MOT on this car. All you have to do is insure and drive!All the tools seem to be there in the boot area. including the original spare wheel.
To sum up this is a fantastic driving vehicle with grace and beauty yet to be challenged. Deposit to hold. then cash or bank transfer on collection. Car can be viewed in my warehouse.

There is a slight amendment required in the text.
As you can see I have used the text "no reserve auction" when in fact I did put a reserve on my car. Obviously makes no difference to the bidding. just means if you don't bid high enough you will not be in with a chance to own this wonderful car. Apologies for the confusion.
