Description

Good V8-250s are keenly sought by those believing its lighter engine results in superior handling to its Jaguar sibling - this could well be the car for them. In the same ownership for 34 years, it has apparently covered a mere 22,500 miles and largely been restored, serviced and maintained by its keeper, a retired Chartered Mechanical Engineer and long-standing member of the Daimler and Lanchester Owners' Club - 'whatever needed doing was done'. Significant body repairs were carried out in 1985/1986, when the colour was changed from Silver Grey to Dove Grey. It was then mainly stored for two decades from 1990, during which spring hangers, jacking points, sills etc were all attended to. The power steering was overhauled in 2009, and the automatic transmission by Graham Whitehouse and engine similarly refreshed in 2010 by Russ Carpenter. A concours award winner, 'VMC 900G' comes complete with original toolkit, 34 years of receipts, tax discs and MOTs, plus an MOT valid into October 2017.
