4000 420 - Barons Sandown Pk Tuesday 26th February 2019 For Sale by Auction
The 420/Sovereign traces its origins back to the Jaguar Mark 2, which was introduced in 1959 and sold through most of the 1960s. Jaguar thought that a similar sized car with high standards of technical sophistication and luxury would be successful. Demands for more luxurious features would add weight to any future models, forcing the drive towards a 4.2-litre-engined compact saloon. A combination of the 4.2-litre engine with the compact saloon body was expected to have market appeal.
Consequently, Sir William initiated development of a new saloon based on the S-Type, retaining its 54-inch independent rear suspension but adding a twin-carburettor version of the 4.2-litre powerplant and frontal styling more akin to that of the Mark X. The new car was released in August 1966 in the form of two badge-engineered models, the Jaguar 420 and the Daimler Sovereign.
1969 Daimler 420 Automatic finished in Red described by the vendor as running and driving with the last MOT running out in October 2018 (now nor required) but needing some TLC such as attention to the body in a couple of places and including a headlining. Nothing major. The interior is described as good, the engine as strong and running well.
