The Daimler Light Straight-Eight with 4 doors and 4 seats is largely in its original state and is a really desirable collectible. The pre-war model was continuously maintained and is ideal for collectors as well as an investment. The classic car is 78 years old, it was mainly driven by a chauffeur in England, as is usual, and is well maintained.
A total of 4 previous owners had the honor to drive this vehicle. The current owner is a German-Dutch painter and graphic artist, who had acquired the car in 1982 and had only driven it for around 1,000 km in good weather. 100 km ago the car was serviced. The leather interior is in good, age-related condition with patina. The car can be immediately registered with H-certification.
