A 1963 Daimler V8

This is a 1963 Daimler 250 V8 Automatic, owned by a neighbour's son. Due to him being in Australia for many years, the car, complete with an incredibly compact 2.5 litre V8 engine, was laid up completely untouched - for 25 long years (yes - an entire quarter century) in the one place, at the back of a darkened basement - from 1982 to 2007. This collection of shots were taken the day before it was shifted, purchased by a new owner to be restored, and placed back onto the road. While the car's condition looked incredibly aged, I was just glad that it was parked in a dry lockup, rather than a boggy field. There are not many of these cars left, likely due to being driven incredibly hard when new, rust and being candidates (they were cheap in the 1970s) for the banger track! Appearances in TV shows like The Sweeney and The Professionals where they were often smashed up did not help much either! Soundtrack used is Massive Attack - "Teardrop" (1998)
