1977 DAIMLER SOVEREIGN - £47,995

  • Daimler sovereign vifx8zbtazvdsqnp69xug

It is not very often we have the pleasure of selling a Jaguar/Daimler that has been through Jaguar Land Rover Classic Works at Coventry. NFU 17R has so many selling points, but having been subject of a bare shell rebuild, then later an extensive re-commissioning by Classic Works, they don’t really get any better than this. JLR Classic later sold the Daimler, advertising the car for £49,995 and it has since then been treasured, kept in outstanding condition and arrives with us in truly outstanding condition. There is no doubt this is an incredibly special car in its own right and with only 1600 manufactured, and likely just a few hundred left on the road, the Daimler Sovereign Series 2 Coupe is an ultra-rare collectors piece. The Daimler Sovereign version of the Jaguar XJC was identified by its fluted radiator grill with the scripted ‘D' badge in the centre and examples likes this are difficult to find. Supplied new by G Mansbridge of Lincoln, the Daimler was first registered on 5th April 1977 and comes with a wonderful extensive history. Finished in Old English White with Russett velour trim and optional Kent alloys, the Daimler was supplied new to a North Lincolnshire company W Graham & Sons Ltd who are still in business today, and was registered with the private registration mark 1 EFU. In 1979 at two years old the Daimler as sold and was in South Kelsey, Lincoln and in 1983 the Daimler made its way to Middlesbrough, but spent just three months with its third owner. In late 1983, with 62,225 miles covered over six years, the Daimler sold to a gentleman in Darlington who kept the car an impressive 32 years and covered around 27000 miles in the car. A wonderful history file accompanies the car with MOT's back to 1983, mileage logs and pages and pages of invoices throughout the 1980's, 1990's and 2000's. In 2016 the Daimler was inspected after restoration by CMC with a mileage of 89078 and at 91000 miles went to JLR Classic for some re-commissioning work before being sold. During 2023 NFU 17R has been serviced, and prior to coming to us fitted with brand new rear brake calipers and pads, and arrives having covered 93,000 miles, and just 2000 miles since its JLR extensive preparation. Having been subject of an impressive rebuild, the Daimler presents like an ultra-low mileage car. The bodywork, shut lines and panels are pristine, the paintwork beautiful, chrome work first class and the upholstery truly outstanding. The underside is quite simply exquisite, and on the road equally impressive with impressive power, performance, comfort and luxury. The engine has no major oil leaks, has excellent compressions and oil pressure, the automatic gearbox is lovely and smooth and the car rides, handles and brakes superbly. This is a car that really has everything, and without doubt is the finest example we have had the pleasure of selling.
