Lot 339 - 1978 Daimler Sovereign Series II (4.2 litre)
|Odometer reading||83,557 miles|

Jaguar/Daimler refreshed its six-cylinder XJ saloon and Daimler Sovereign range in 1973 with the introduction of the XJ6 and Daimler Sovereign Series II. The new cars featured a sleeker new bodyshell which had a slimmer front grille, new front air intake below the bumper, new lights and a revised interior. At first the short and long wheel base versions were available, however all cars carried the long wheel base after 1975 and were, once again, powered by the 4.2 litre XJ unit.
Originally registered on 1st August 1978, this long wheel base Daimler has only had two former keepers with the current registered keeper owning her for the last 28 years. Our test drive confirmed this to be a car that has clearly been well looked after throughout the years, the engine ran well with good oil pressure and the automatic transmission operated as it should. This is a very genuine, honest example, very tidy on the inside and a couple of familiar spots of corrosion on the bodywork although these can be easily rectified. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 7th January 2017 (no advisories) together with a good selection of bills and invoices; this Daimler Sovereign is offered at no reserve and is well worth a look.
