1965 Daimler 250 Saloon, 4 door sedan. Classic British touring car. Built by Jaguar and uses a Jaguar Mk II chassis but has a Daimler 2.5 Litre V-8 engine. Jaguar had recently purchased the Daimler motor car company and decided to use their newly acquired engine in their existing Jag Mk II. This sedan has run and driven recently despite having been parked for many years. It needs lots of TLC and a total restoration would be ideal. It is Right-Hand drive and has an automatic transmission.
