This dark green 1967 Daimler 2. 5 V8 with suede green interior is largely original and unrestored and until recently had been dry stored since 1988.  It has been recommissioned to MOT standard without going for a full restoration but as expected with an unrestored car of this age will not be totally reliable.

The bodywork is generally quite good for this 60s motor. It looks like it has had it's sills done in the past and the car requires cosmetic work and repainting. There are a few rust bubbles coming through the bottom of the bootlid and a little around a couple of the front headlights. Three doors look like originals to the car but the passenger rear door was has been sourced separately in the past and built up after a reskin. Underneath the car is very solid. impressing the MOT tester after replacing the 2 rear jacking points – common places to rust away on this car. The rest of the underside including the boot floor. spring hangers. front cross member and crows feet are in very good condition.

The engine now running sweetly and the gearbox was rebuilt in 1987 just before the car was laid up. The carbs have been taken apart and thoroughly cleaned. the fuel tank replaced and a brand new David Manners exhaust system fitted. The brakes that were in initially seized has had it's front calipers and discs replaced with E Type ones and the back ones have been repaired for safe braking along with new brake pipes.

The suede green interior has a ‘well used' feel to it. The front seats are cracked in places. particularly the drivers seat. A good clean up and maybe a bit stitching could solve all this (the car comes with a suede green leather cleaning. feed and paint kit). The rear seats are very good. The carpets. especially in the rear have been attacked by mice in the past but have been vacuumed up so they look acceptable.   The car is missing a bit of trim. noticeably the front door cappings and the rubbers for the doors and door windows.

In conclusion. this is a  useable classic with 11 months MOT and tax that has had lots of recent work on it to get it on the road. but clearly requiring further snagging to make it reliable. Whatever this Daimler has a great colour combination and real 60's charm.
