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 wheelbase versions were available, however all cars carried the long wheelbase after 1975 and were, once again, powered by the 4.2 litre XJ unit.  

Originally registered in the Queens Jubilee year of 1977, this regal looking Daimler presents extremely well in Midnight Blue with a contrasting beige leather interior. The chromework, including the fluted front grille and boot plinth, are in good order throughout. On a recent drive, the engine ran well with good oil pressure and the automatic transmission operated as it should. Supplied with a V5C registration document, various bills and receipts this MoT exempt car continues to be an imposing vehicle that wouldn’t look out of place driving the Prime Minister from Downing Street.
