Sadly having to put up the Daimler for sale. I have really enjoyed owning / driving this incredible machine, and is one of the comfiest cars I've had the pleasure to drive. Mileage is sitting around 103750 and will go up very slowly as I only use this to take to classic car shows during the summer.
Recently passed it's MOT ( no advisories ), after having the passenger side footwell & inner cill repaired ( rust cut out and new metal welded in ), and a small amount of rust repaired on the drivers side inner cill. Also done at the same time was 2 new front shock absorbers & front lower ball joint. Other works I have done are auto gearbox oil changed, oil & filter change, new discs & pads fitted to the front along with new front wheel bearings, new brake pads fitted to the rear. The exhaust has been repaired where the centre section has been replaced with stainless steel items. So now it's running fantastic. I have also rebuilt the front bumper with a nos bumper beam, brackets, clips, nuts etc, from SNG Barrett. The original bumper was severely corroded and in danger of collapsing.
Bodywork is in good condition, she is 30yrs old so don't expect showroom condition. Interior is immaculate with no rips / marks to the leather seats ( electric ), wood is in similar condition as well. Although the dreaded sagging headlining is present which is a common fault in these big cats.
*Also done this week (12/07/19), is a brand new water pump has been fitted, and anti freeze renewed.
Now, if you've read this far you will probably be familiar with these motors, but what sets these apart from the Jaguar XJ40. The Daimler was the flagship of the XJ40 range, with the interior being the very essence of luxury. It has walnut veneer picnic table in the rear, lambs wool over rugs, rear window blinds. The rear featured two individual seats separated by an elaborate centre armrest that folded down in front of a wood veneered oddments tray. The leather seats were of a higher quality than those fitted to Jaguar models and featured a fluted appearance that echoed the style of the radiator grille and rear boot plinth, complemented by high-quality burr walnut inserts.
Standard equipment included air conditioning, metallic paint, cruise control, headlamp power wash, electrically-adjusted heated mirrors, self levelling suspension, 8 way adjustable electric heated front seats, and a top of the range (at the time) Clarion radio-cassette player When this model was launched in 1986 it carried a price tag of £32,000, which was £4k more than the top spec Jaguar 3.6 Sovereign of the day.
So, to summarise, a very solid useable classic which should last for years, it's not perfect but very presentable marque for 30yrs old.
Its time to sell My beloved Daimler Sovereign 3.6 XJ40.
