Its been for sale on and off for a number of years.

I recall one last picture from the listing showing the speedo at 135mph or 140mph! A slightly unusual approach to selling a Daimler! Also somewhat incriminating to show that! It may have been a past owner, who knows.

Looks nice and apparently isn't a rust bucket.


The last listing was £2200 RNM.

If you want an early Daimler, these two might be worth a look too?

I looked at the red one previously ( on web) and the mot history didn't read as good as the car looks. ;)

As it's usually the case... :lol: Still, magnolia with red piping on a Daimler, absolutely best combo.

As usual. How many now, seriously don’t have a raft of advisories/ failures for corrosion? Even if they were way in the past?

the most important bit with the MOT history in my opinion is yes they may list a raft of faults but look at the history.
do they repeat themselves mot after mot (then owner not maintaining the car) or they arnt a issue realy
do they vanish then the owner looking after the car and fixing the bits needed (or different tester less strict)

the history is only a guide nothing better than looking at the car and deciding for yourself. mine in fact had a problem that mot did not pick up easy fix but it was welding job.

When it was up for sale previously it was for more money and the advert was much more glamourous. I compared the mot history to my car and felt the description then was a bit off considering the mot history. Far more honest with the advert this time. Great colour and spec.

You got outbid then? By a bidder with 13 feedback!
There’s no way he will complete the sale.
You could still get it then, assuming you still want it?

Not sure Naki, I did ask to contact me if it doesn't sell for whatever reason :)
