1968 Daimler Sovereign

Converted to manual with overdrive; very smart example with sound bodywork; stainless exhaust; a most appealing car crying out for more regular use

This impressive Daimnler Sovereign 420 was completed on 13th June 1968, painted dark blue and trimmed in black leather according to the accompanying Heritage Certificate.

It was delivered to its first owner, a Mr Denis Russell through the Eton Motor Group, registered WAN 52G and according to the V5C, has had just four more keepers since then.

It comes with its original Owner's Service Policy, Daimler Sales and Service list, lubrication chart and about 14 old tax discs. It was looked after by Jaguar and Daimler specialists Norman Motors from 1992, with various bills on file up to 2004. It has a stainless exhaust fitted by them and has only covered some 5,000 miles since they looked after the car.

There are 12 old MOTs on file which would tend to substantiate the indicated 93,000 miles as correct, although the online printout shows an error in 2006 and 2007 where the 9 must have been read as a 3....

We are not quite sure when, but at some time the automatic gearbox was swapped for a manual with overdrive, the installation being done to a high standard.

The bodywork is sound, with good panel gaps and straight lines.The paintwork is good too, with just a few areas of minor paint reaction and its last MOT expired in 2015.

This is a perfect example of a good car needing more regular use.
