The Daimler Sovereign was introduced at the 1966 London Motor Show and the compact, sporting saloon was in production for two years making it a rather rare car. The Sovereign was developed from the Jaguar S Type and was a more expensive car to buy and effectively ended buyer interest in the earlier model. The Daimler featured many 'upgrades/improvements from the S Type to include a replacement of the Borg Warner Type 35 automatic transmission with the strong Model 8, a more efficient cross flow radiator, a dual line braking system, twin 2 inch HD8 carburetors, brake discs featuring a peripheral cast iron anti squeal ring, a Holset 'Torquatrol' viscous coupled engine cooling fan, a pre-engaged starter instead of a Bendix pinion and an alternator as opposed to a dynamo.BXC 420G is a remarkably correct example, first registered on the 6th August 1968 and still riding on its period steel wheels, retaining its original registration mark and as factory supplied, finished in Golden Sand with Cinamon leather upholstery. The car retains many of its original features which would fit with the current recorded mileage of 79,000. The upholstery is an absolute delight and still retains that unmistakable 1960's leather smell. The leather itself has delightfully aged, carpets appear the correct original 1960's material in exceptional condition, the cloth headlining is lovely and clean, door cards excellent and the woodwork is in very good condition.The Daimler presents very well with a clean, Golden Sand paint finish. The body is structurally excellent, door bottoms and wheel arches excellent and the brighwork is generally very good and largely original. Under the bonnet we can see clear waxoyl to inner wings and the bulk head showing previous owners have been meticulous in keeping the car in strong, sound condition. On the road the Daimler feels precise, it holds the road superbly and offers the 4.2 engine sounds excellent with very good oil pressure and the superb 4.2 Jaguar performance we are used too. The automatic gearbox shifts up and down smoothly, After a period of very little use, the Daimler was subject of some light re-commissioning in late 2020 and whilst not required, it was put through an MOT with no advisories. This is a lovely honest car; it has many strong selling points and will be supplied to its next owner freshly serviced and ready to use and enjoy.
