Based on the 1966 Jaguar 420. a derivation of the previous
S-Type model. the Daimler Sovereign was readily identified by the
traditional Daimler fluted radiator surround and the interior was
furnished with finest quality leather hide upholstery. polished
figured walnut instrument panel and deep pile carpets that were
sufficiently luxurious to satisfy Daimler's established
clientele.

The 420 and Sovereign differed from the S-Type in having a revised
four-headlight nose reminiscent of the Jaguar Mk. X and were
powered by a 4. 2 litre version of the straight-six XK engine. There
were thoughts of fitting the Sovereign with the Daimler 4. 5 litre
V8 engine. as used in the Majestic Major but. as this was
significantly more powerful than the Jaguar XK unit. it would have
led to the Sovereign outperforming the Jaguar 420. Consequently
company management did not pursue the idea as the Jaguar marque was
the one with the sporting image.

The Daimler Sovereign offered today was manufactured in January
1969 and originally sold through well known Jaguar agents. Murkett
Brothers of Cambridge. The car presents very well in midnight blue
with a matching interior and silver wire wheels. The vendor informs
us that the car drives very well with no known faults. Recent work
carried out to the car includes the fitting of new fuel tanks and
new rear sections of the exhaust system. The Daimler comes with a
current V5C registration certificate. a Jaguar Heritage certificate
and the original owner's handbook. A fresh MoT test certificate
will be obtained prior to the sale. With fewer than 6. 00 examples
manufactured. the Sovereign is one of the rarest Daimler/Jaguar
saloons and good examples are consequently hard to find. This
elegant Sovereign shows an indicated 84. 00 miles and is offered at
a very tempting estimate.
