Rare Daimler DB18 Barker Special Sports For Sale

Post by andrewwainwright » Sun Mar 17, 2019 1:12 pm


The car had sold, we had taken a deposit, and were storing it until our buyer was ready to take it over. Sadly, he has died unexpectedly, so the car is for sale again.

Rare example with 2.5 litre Conquest Century engine and 3 speed automatic gearbox. 1952. Current MOT.
The car has been in the same family since around 1980. Good reliable example.
Large history file, plus many spares included.
In addition to routine maintenance, recent work has included adjusting valve clearances, replace big ends, mains, and thrust bearings. Re-line front brakes, strip and overhaul all brakes. New timing chain, replace kingpins and trunion bushes. Steering box swapped. Rear springs replaced.
New pistons and rings, cylinders honed, and replacement of cylinder head gasket.
£32,000 ovno [Notts area]
