Finished in Navy Blue with red leather interior, this automatic-transmission example was purchased new by one Neville Singleton of Gloucester, as confirmed by his letter on file date October 1977 stating that the odometer reading (then 37,000 miles) was genuine. In February 1986, Michael Savidge of Hucclecote, Gloucestershire bought the Daimler from a Mr Taylor, at which time the mileage total stood at 56,000. In 1987 Mr Savidge sold the car to one Ronald Drysdale, from whom it was purchased by the current vendor in 2003. We are advised that the current recorded mileage of 67,000 is genuine.
The car has been repainted at some time but the interior remains original. Many thousands of pounds have been spent on the Daimler since its acquisition. Works carried out include fitting new jacking points, sills, suspension bushes, hubs, brakes and four new whitewall tyres. Related maintenance bills from Auto Classico of Bristol and Malmesbury Specialist Cars are on file together with the aforementioned correspondence, MoT to December 2015 and a V5C registration document. Cosmetically improvable but running and driving well, this low-mileage Daimler V8 is only sold because of its owner's ill health.
