Further Info:

Believed but not warranted to have covered just 58,400 miles, this handsome Daimler is further understood to have had just three former keepers prior to being acquired by the vendor's father. Reportedly 'waxoyled from new', the long wheelbase model is described by the seller as a 'true survivor with floors and sills that have never been welded'. He further comments the original engine 'still shows maker's oil pressure' and that the saloon 'drives very well' with its 'original radio / electric aerial working wonderfully'. Summing-up the Daimler as 'very original and quite stunning all round', the vendor gives it the following ratings:

Bodywork: 'A1'
Engine: 'A1, thoroughly overhauled c.2004, maker's oil pressure'
Electrical equipment: 'A1'
Paintwork: 'A1'
Automatic Transmission: 'A1'
Interior Trim: 'Excellent and all original except for the recently renewed headlining'

Worthy of close inspection, 'UNN 510S' is offered for sale with history file including various bills / service records and a 'no advisories' MOT certificate valid until May 2016.

PLEASE NOTE: This vehicle has had four former keepers and not as stated in the Pocket Guide.

PLEASE NOTE: The current keeper is the son of the former keeper who registered the vehicle in his name in order to administer his father's business including the sale of the vehicle.

PLEASE NOTE: The engine overhaul invoice is not specific but shows £2,138 of expenditure.
