Vehicle description

This Daimler is a very proper motor car that features an aluminum Barker convertible body. Approximately 500 such vehicles were produced during the production period of 1948-1953. While looking like a classic British vehicle, a previous owner replaced the original 2.5 liter inline six Daimler engine with a more modern Ford 4.0 liter inline six. The new power plant gives this car sufficient horsepower to enjoy it safely. The current owner has spent over $12,000 recently to make it a reliable vehicle to enjoy including a new computer controlled automatic overdrive transmission. The recent work done includes 4 new Excelsior Stahl Radial tires with new tubes New fuel pump New ANODE 4R70W/75 Transmission New shift kit New flywheel Bulkhead connector Output speed sensor New brake shoes New heater hose/thermostat Chrome Valve cover Temp and oil gauge New starter Hoses/ fluids/misc hardware/parts New battery The car features a combination of great European styling with a modern American drive train. The car can be serviced virtually anywhere. The car has a combination of original and older restored cosmetics. It is presentable as is as a sleeper or could be restored. This is your chance to own a rare British automobile with great presence for a reasonable price. Please email me with your questions.
