1978 DAIMLER SOVEREIGN 4.2 LWB AUTO OLIVE GREEN*NO RESERVE*STUNNING CLASSIC for sale
HERE I HAVE MY OWN PERSONAL WEEKEND INDULGENCE (PART OF MY COLLECTION). INISHED IN OLIVE GREEN WITH SPECIAL ORDER MUSTARD VELOUR SEATS & LOVELY WALNUT CAPPING IT LOOKS SIMPLY FANTASTIC & IS IMMACULATE IN EVERY WAY. IT HAS LOVELY ORIGINAL TRIMS (WITH GOOD TYRES ALL ROUND). ALSO BEING THE DAIMLER MODEL WHICH WAS THE UPMARKET MODEL JAGUAR OF THE TIME IT HAS VARIOUS EXTRAS AND FLUTED EXTERIOR TRIM.
I BELIEVE IT WAS SUPPLIED NEW TO THE FAMOUS AMERICAN FILM PRODUCTION COMPANY CALLED BELL & HOWELL LTD AND THEN IT WAS SOLD TO A DIRECTOR AT THE NAT WEST BANK. T THEN CHANGED HANDS A COUPLE OF TIMES BUT NOT REALLY USED IN THE 80"S & I BELIEVE IT THEN WENT TO A WEALTHY LAND OWNER WHERE IT WAS PARKED IN STORAGE FOR SOME 20+ YEARS TILL THE DECEASED ESTATE WAS SOLD ON TO THE CLASSIC CAR DEALER WHO HAD THE VEHICLE FULLY RESTORED FOR HIMSELF & USED ON OCCASION HIMSELF OVER THE LAST 2-3 YEARS. IT COMES COMPLETE WITH THE ALL IMPORTANT SERVICE BOOK WHICH HAS FULL HISTORY WITH A TOTAL OF 21 STAMPS IN THE BOOK. O LOVELY SERVICE HISTORY.
THE CAR DRIVES ABSOLUTELY WITHOUT FAULT & IS TOTALLY IMMACULATE BOTH INTERIOR WISE AND BODILY. T IS IN REMARKABLE AND INCREDIBLE TO BELIEVE CONDITION IT IS LIKE GOING BACK IN TIME. THIS REALLY IS A LOVELY EXAMPLE INDEED.Outwardly distinguishable from its Coventry sibling only by the marque's traditional fluted radiator grille and different badging. the Daimler Sovereign that appeared a year after the Jaguar XJ6's launch was in effect a top-of-the-range model. with most optional extras incorporated as standard. The XJ6 had been launched to much acclaim in 1968. refining concepts embodied by previous Jaguar saloons to create a car rivalling the best offered by Mercedes-Benz. The six-cylinder XK engine was available in either 2. 8-litre or 4. 2-litre forms initially. the latter capable of propelling Jaguar's - and Daimler's - luxuriously appointed flagship to a top speed of 120mph-plus. In its behaviour it gets closer to perfection than any other luxury car i have tested. regardless of price. was Motor magazine's summation of the XJ6.
For 1974 the range was upgraded to Series II specification. gaining a restyled front end and an improved interior. A two-door coup was introduced the following year at the same time as a 3. 4-litre engine option. the old 2. 8 having been dropped. Together with the equivalent Jaguar. the Daimler Sovereign was built on the. previously optional. longer wheelbase from 1975.
This automatic-transmission Daimler Sovereign is lovely Finished in olive green with special order mustard interior. the car has benefited from a high quality full restoration over the last couple of years and is presented in excellent condition throughout. A full service history till the time when it was parked up for approx 20 years prior to its purchase by a classic car restorer/dealer & its subsequent restoration is on file confirm the recorded mileage of 66. 16 as genuine and the vehicle also comes with current road fund licence. MoT to September 2014 and Swansea V5 registration document.
IN SUMMARY THIS IS A STUNNING AND YET USABLE CLASSIC DAIMLER WITH THE DESIRABLE 4. 2Ltr STRAIGHT 6 ENGINE WITH THE BULLET PROOF 3 SPEED GEARBOX AND ITS THE RARE LWB DAIMLER MODEL SO HAS EXTRA KIT AND IS 10 TIMES RARER THAN THE JAGS OF THIS ERA. O SURELY THE ONE TO HAVE ESPECIALLY IN OLIVE GREEN. IT DRIVES FAULTLESS AND HAS FULL SERVICE HISTORY WITH IT AS WELL AS HAVING LONG TAX AND TEST. SO IS READY TO DRIVE AWAY EFFORTLESSLY. IF YOU LET THIS CAR GO WHEN YOUR SERIOUS ABOUT ONE YOU'D HAVE TO BE A FOOL AS THEY GENERALLY DON'T COME UP LIKE THIS ON EBAY. SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY COMMAND A PREMIUM ON CLASSIC DEALER SITES AND THE LIKE.
