1993 1992 Daimler 4.0 Auto XJ40 - Stunning Condition For Sale

This is the extremely reluctant sale of my Daimler. I have bought another car, but have been told very firmly one has to go, and sadly have nowhere else to keep this car.

This is an extremely solid car, in truly fantastic condition and drives faultlessly. Cosmetically it is equally fantastic. This car was already in excellent condition when I bought it, but over the past two years, a lot of money has been spent on it to make it even better.

121,000 miles.
MOT until 9th October 2020 (no advisories on current MOT).

1992 car but registered in 1993 (the 92MY like this one is far better in my opinion, as it doesn’t suffer terminal bulkhead corrosion like the later revision!)

This has all the top of the range features and toys including rear blinds and picnic tables, individual rear seats, heated and electronically adjustable front seats, 4 speed auto gearbox with Sport mode, 6 CD changer, lambswool rugs, electric windows all round and sunroof. The original toolkit is also present in the boot and is mostly complete. The Bosch battery is a little over a year old and has most of its 5 year warranty left. All tyres are in excellent condition, including the full size spare in the boot.

The car comes with a large box of history from previous owners, as well as the original Jaguar service booklet. Everything I’ve had done, including photos taken by my garage, is present. This includes:

Undersealing the car and cavity wax injected to all box sections; regular servicing including the gearbox; recent new brake pads and discs and brake fluid change; various suspension components renewed; powered steering hoses replaced; new spark plug leads, distributor cap and rotor arm; various bits of body and paintwork including repairing corrosion to a rear windscreen pillar, sunroof surround, new rear arches and rear valance. The engine bay has also been given a thorough renewal including repainting the cam cover.

The not so good bits:
The steering rack has been recently replaced with a newer refurbished ZF rack. It works brilliantly and there are no fluid leaks, but has a slightly tight spot when making sharp turns. I’ve got used to this very quickly and the steering feels extremely sure in all situations, with no wobble or play in the steering. The original Adwest rack is included with sale in case the purchaser would rather have this refurbished and refitted, which would eliminate this tight spot.

The ash tray and end dash vents veneer has faded slightly, with the ski slope veneer having one crack in it. These parts aren’t expensive to replace though and all other wood is in fantastic condition.

That’s the only two points to note!

This car has been taken to many shows and always receives extremely positive comments. It’s my pride and joy and was featured heavily this year in Modern Classics Magazine (a copy is included with sale). Under my ownership and that of the previous owner, the car has been subjected to no expense spared maintenance.

All viewings and inspections are welcome at Harleston, on the Norfolk/Suffolk border.

Any questions welcome.
