After being built in October 1964, this Daimler V8 250 was originally exported as a new vehicle to South Australia during 1965, before eventually going to New Zealand, where it was totally restored around 1995-1996. It was repatriated by the vendor in 2017, registered here in August of that year, and has stayed with him until this auction so has thus had just one UK owner. The odometer shows 83,787 miles and the last MoT expired in July 2018 after having been tested the previous year at 82,716 miles; as an historic vehicle, the Daimler is now MoT-exempt. Paperwork accompanying the Daimler includes the V5C, most recent MoT certificate, Jaguar Heritage Trust production record trace certificate, ownership history and assorted invoices. This includes one for a service in October 2022 (with receipts for previous servicing). There's also a list of itemised maintenance from 1990 to 2015, some Australian and New Zealand paperwork and invoices, and some newspaper articles relating to the model, and photos of the restoration.
