Our 1964 Daimler 250 V8 has been going through a detailed assessment with classic car technician Scott.

Scott has been checking the car to see what work and parts will be required to get it back out on the road. His initial findings suggest that most of the brakes and rubber components need to be replaced.

The next step of Scott’s assessment involved checking and cleaning the fuel system. He removed the old tank and checked the electrics. While doing this, Scott found that the pump wasn’t working so he has replaced this with a temporary one for now.

Scott went on to check the oil and make sure that there were no obstructions in the intake. He was actually able to get the car running before he stripped and rebuilt the brake calipers.

Once the car was running, Scott moved our Daimler to the wash bay. After removing the wheels, he steam-cleaned the underside of all of the old thick grease and grime.

The rear axle was removed, stripped, and cleaned and the rear bushings were removed too. The rear springs were also removed and cleaned.

After Scott had finished his assessment, classic car technician Mauro painted the rear diff and propshaft of our 1964 Daimler 250 V8.
