1963 Daimler Dart V8 Lhd Auto.

Chassis Number:  101553

Registration Number: 4068WK

ThisDaimler Dart sets the standards by which others must be judged.  This car is the recipient of numerous concours awards & magazine articles.  Moreover it is the very car used by Quentin Wilson in his definitive tome: "The Ultimate Classic Car Book."

The car has resided until recently in North London where it has covered jsut a couple of thousand miles since restoration.  The car is a Left Hand drive automatic & is simply a pleasure to drive.  One of the best points on these Darts is the ease of ingress & egress.  There is simply loads of room to swing ones legs in & out with no sill to clamber over.

The fully rebuilt 2.5 Litre V8 engine is fully rebuilt & is everything one might expect of a Daimler V8 engine.   It fires up readily but has a handy turn of perfomance making all the right noises when pushed harder.  It is mated to a three speed automatic gear box which allows for unruffled A & B road cruising in a very relaxed manner.

The car is finished in flawless metallic silver with a red leather interior & a grey fold away hood & hood bag.  The interior again is in immaculate concours order. A daimler branded car cover is found in the boot along with the copious history which extends to two large file boxes. £51,970 was paid fo the car at a Bonhams auction back in 2015.  The car sits on chrome wire wheels shod with almost new tyres & is absolutely ready to go.

I have to believe that this is as good an example as may be found & comes to us with a wonderful provenance.  To drive it is a revelation as to just how good these rare cars are.
