RetroMarques Ltd is pleased to offer for sale on behalf of the owner: 1968 Daimler V8-250 Saloon, ‘PCG 750G’, MOD/PAS...

An opportunity to own a lovely, post-67 update Daimler Saloon with good history, in very good condition mechanically and driving nicely. A very desirable manual/overdrive specification car, also with power-assisted steering; ‘PCG’ is understood to be one of only 200 such models manufactured.

  • Built: 24 Oct 1968
  • Chassis No: P1K 4053 DN
  • Eng No: 7K 3940

  • Paint: Sable
  • Trim: Grey

History:

  • Wallet containing: Daimler sales card, Daimler Owner’s Service Policy card, Daimler Sales & Service Facilities booklet, Daimler Operating, Maintenance and Service Handbook, Daimler V8-250 Maintenance Chart Maintenance record from 2014 to present (last 2 owners)
  • MoT tests from ’92, present valid to 1 Aug 18
  • Ownership details including DVLA record trace
  • Invoices: parts & service details, including recent shocks/springs, tyres, hoses, oil filter conversion
  • Recent long-term ownership in the Cotswolds area including a number of years with a local classic car workshop proprietor before changing to the present owner (last 3 years).

The Sable paint presents very well with just a small area of age-related marks to the scuttle panel and seemingly rust and welding-free underneath and neatly waxoyl protected. The panel gaps are very good with all doors closing beautifully.

She starts immediately and drives away strongly, with a lovely burble from the twin stainless exhausts. On the road she pulls well with a nice smooth, positive gearbox and slick overdrive, the brakes pulling her up strong and straight.

Whilst mostly very original, including the original toolkit in the boot, the car has been upgraded by CMC with inertia-reel seatbelts (front & rear). A period radio with an MP3 aux connection in the glovebox is also fitted. There is insufficient documentary evidence to prove it, but both history and condition do suggest that the sub-50k mileage may well be original.

A clearly cherished Daimler with the attraction of both PAS and the MOD specification and looking very smart in the rare Sable/Grey colour combination and whilst presenting well, equally not too pristine to enjoy using.

Price: SOLD
