Have all original parts so if desired vehicle can be completed as an original numbers matching Jaguar - Daimler 250.

Vehicle is Right hand drive (very rare in America). Also has a factory sunroof which is rare on these cars.

Vehicle bought new in England by a Texan who 1 year later moved back to Texas and took the car with him. Due to the majority of its life in Texas this vehicle had very little rust. Solid body, floor and undercarriage.

History:

Around 1960, BSA sold Daimler to Jaguar Cars, which continued Daimler's line and added a Daimler variant of its Mark II sports saloon. Jaguar was then merged into the British Motor Corporation in 1966.

Under these companies, Daimler became an upscale trim level for Jaguar cars.

It was widely considered to be the luxurious version of the Mark II.

It features the same body metal and different fluted chrome trim on the front and rear. It is much rarer that the more typical Mark II.
