Coming from a deceased estate, we are instructed to sell this beautifully presented vehicle. The last owner purchased it 29 years ago from a dealer, then traced the history back with its two former owners- a fastidious sounding company director, then a retired couple who were reportedly very fond of the car. Notes of those meetings and conversations remain in the Daimler’s voluminous paperwork, along with a bulging file of bills, MOT certificates, further driving and maintenance notes etc. A car for keeps, it clearly became more an object of beauty and hobby interest for the owner than a means of transport. When it had covered 68,000 miles around 8 years ago, a systematic and thorough refurbishment was carried out more for the satisfaction of undertaking it, than because the car required it. With a strip down and repaint, engine rebuild, interior refresh and too much else to list, the bills became eye watering, but the owner was unphased. During the disruption of covid and the owner’s own subsequent illness, the project was almost, but not quite finished, so the family asked us to undertake final detailing and testing before the car is sold on. With 70,000 miles just clicked over during our final road testing, this desirable, pillarless coupe looks resplendent in its Royal Blue coachwork and Magnolia hide colour combination with customary vinyl roof. Period option Kent alloy wheels set it off beautifully, and this Coupe is sensibly priced to the right home.
