Here we have a really good example of a Series 2 XJ6 Daimler Sovereign LWB. it's quite unique with Series 3 Bumpers fitted. so it looks at first glance like a series 3!

The previous owner has really loved and looked after it - and has the largest History file I have ever seen!

Its not been used since the MOT last April. only covering the mileage back to my storage unit. MOT Expires22nd April 2014.

The Car; 1978 Daimler Sovereign 4. 2 Auto LWB. in Squadron Blue with Beige Velour Interior. Chrome Wheels. Air Conditioning. electric windows ONLY 66900 Miles from New. with heaps of paperwork to confirm.

The Body; The history file confirms both front wings were replaced and re-sprayed. The paint is lovely with just a few chips and small bubbles. but this is by far very original and the defects are age related.

The Interior;  Fitted with Factory Ordered Beige Velour seats. Excellent Wood. and generally a very tidy interior. the headlining is not sagging. the driver's side front carpet is worn. but has the correct rubber over mats fitted. front and rear seat belts fitted. The heater works really well. but air con needs gas.

Mechanical; Really sound engine and gearbox. starts 1st time. with a fully working original AED fitted. The gearbox is sweet and shifts through the gears lovely. A full stainless steel exhaust system is fitted. The car is fitted with the recommended Dunlop Sport Tyres as it would have left the factory. and this really enhances the way it drives.   The electric fuel pump on the RH tank is troublesome and when hot stops working. the LH works perfectly.

I have had quite a few of these in my time. and I know a good one. this is a great car. the engine is sweet as is the drive. with just a few bits and bobs to tidy this car up. you'll have a Daimler to be proud of.

 

Cash on Collection please. No PayPal. Collection within 5 days after the Auction has ended.
