Footnotes

  • A late model to 'C' specification, this Daimler SP250 was manufactured in 1963 and sold by Stratstone of London on 21st July 1963 complete with hardtop. It was finished in Daimler Ivory (Jaguar Old English White) with black trim and ivory piping.

    The current owner purchased the Daimler in 2004. It was mechanically superb and came with service history but was somewhat shabby, though the glassfibre body was in excellent condition. The car was then restored to the very highest standard with every effort made to preserve originality, as far as possible, including the EKCO 917 radio and Jaeger clock, fitted from new by the first lady owner. It already had an overdrive fitted but to this was added rack-and-pinion steering and, more recently, electronic ignition, both of which substantially improve the driving experience.

    Since that time, 'AJF 190A' has won many awards including 'Best in Show' at the 2006 Classic Car Show at the NEC, Europe's second largest such event. This is a unique achievement in the history of the Daimler SP marque.

    Since restoration the car has covered a further 5,000 miles, with a total 70,600 miles shown on the odometer, which may be original. We are advised that the Daimler is a delight to drive, its wonderful V8 engine pulling from around 1,000 revs in top gear to the maximum speed of approximately 120mph if required. It comes complete with a separate hood and original hood bag, and an extensive set of tools, all prepared to exhibition standard.

    'AJF 190A' has represented the Daimler & Lanchester Owners' Club on many occasions and is well know within the Club for its excellent standard of preparation. There have also been many appearances in magazines and books. Described as in superb condition, the car is offered for sale with current MoT/tax, V5 registration document, dating certificate and an extensive portfolio of photographs, bills, expired MoTs, tax discs (the earliest 1974) and other memorabilia.
