|Daimler V8 250
'Willy' is a 1969 Daimler V8 250. I bought him on 9 October 2005
Fortunately he had been taken good
reasonably good care
of and had had quite a bit of money spent on the engine and gearbox.
I've got a few bits to do such as the scuttle
leak into the footwell heater but nothing major to make the car
Willy (number plate) runs like a dream
and starts on the button. He's got a tracking device fitted, a kenlowe
fan and full alarm system.
A repaired scuttle vent, electronic
ignition to replace the points and a good service means he runs like a
dream, if you search around the web you will hear about how good these
engines are and it is true, they run smoothly and sound great.
The screen leaked a bit but that's all
fixed now thanks to a nice bloke from Autoglass and some Loctite
Was a bit of a shock for the wife when
she came home and saw him sitting on the drive !
