This car is a very beautiful and rare 1964 Daimler V8 Saloon. There may be only a handful in North America. It has very similar lines to the Jaguar MkII. The note below will explain some of the lineage of the manufacturer. The attached pictures will show that it’s in great shape for being over 50 years old. The engine will require some work although this shouldn’t be too difficult for a home mechanic or someone with some time and curiosity. The car was running in the driveway for about an hour on October 19 although it's snowy and cold today on the 21st and it's just turning over. The fuel pump, located at the back of the car works well. It helped to drain old fuel out of the tank. The carburetors are easy to service. The vehicle has not had a safety or an etest. It will be sold as is. There is a good supply of parts available from numerous parts dealers in the UK. I do have more photos and videos of the engine running should you have a serious interest in the vehicle. Here are some of the specs. VIN: REP19378783270501 Transmission: 4 speed manual with overdrive Body type: 4 door sedan Warranty: None Vehicle title: Available late November Options: CD Player Exterior color: White (Repainted) Interior colour: Red with real wood veneers Engine: Alloy Number of cylinders: 8 Mileage: 109206 Here is a Wiki type history of the car. With a name as old as the industry itself, Daimler was purchased from the BSA group by Jaguar in 1960 and one of the key assets was Edward Turner's superbly refined and remarkably lightweight 90-degree V8 engine. The 2.5-litre unit produced more power, was smoother and weighed considerably less than Jaguar's own 2.4-litre XK unit. Recognizing the potential of Turner's engine, William Lyons and his engineers installed the V8 in the compact Mark II, creating a car with an entirely different character, one endowed with excellent handling and ride and relaxed. With twin SU carburettors, the engine developed 140 horsepower and the Daimler could reach nearly 110 mph. Inside, the Daimler had a lovely coach built feel, with a Walnut veneer dash complete with full instrumentation, a split bench front seat and West of England headlining.
