Morris Leslie Auctions Ltd are pleased to announce this lot will be offered for sale in our forth coming auction of classic vehicles on Saturday 17th August at our Perthshire auction centre, over 150 expected entries. Please visit our website for a full pictured catalogue. Estimate: £10,000 - £12,000. Chassis number 1A33850BW - the chassis number decodes as a 1968 built RHD Automatic Daimler Sovereign which was originally Red and has been colour changed to White during 1997, the registration HDS50G is a year related registration and was allocated during 1989 the original registration number was SVA5G which would have been issued around February 1969 in the Lanarkshire area. The production of these cars ran from 1966 to 1969. The cars where a badge engineered version of the Jaguar 420 saloon, which itself was based on the Jaguar S-Type. The Daimler differed from the S-Type in having a revised four headlight nose reminiscent of the Jaguar Mark X, and being powered by a 4.2-litre version of the straight six XK engine along with the traditional Daimler fluted radiator grille and boot handle housing the reversing light, different badging and a few added luxuries which included higher quality leather upholstery. The vendor informs us that this example was kept in storage by a previous owner for almost 30 years and was the subject of restoration some 20 years ago which we are informed included solder and new metal work restoration by a traditional panel beater. A new Webasto sunroof, reconditioned red leather interior with replacement carpeting, headlining and soundproofing. The vendor states that the car has some retro improvements which include, retrofitted painted and treated metal fuel tank covers to guard against the elements at the rear, which can be removed if desired, invisible plastic front wheel arch inserts to guard against the elements at the front to avoid front wing corrosion which can also be removed if desired. This example was previously owned by the President of the Jaguar Drivers Club, Scotland. We are notified that the engine has been converted for the use of unleaded fuel, a stainless steel exhaust fitted. The car has easily removable retro fitted hazard indicators, an electrically operated aerial and an isolator switch which is hidden in the lockable glove compartment. There is a Leaping Jaguar sculpture at the front together with the traditional Daimler insignia which also can be removed. The original Daimler grill is included and can be fitted if required. This example was supplied new in Automatic form and the President of The Jaguars Drivers Club Scotland converted the car to Manual Transmission during his ownership, as it was his belief that the Manual O/D had better gear ratios than the Automatic and improved fuel economy and performance.
