1990 Daimler DS420 Limousine. Lovely all round car For Sale

Condition is pretty much as you can see in the pictures, very nice all round with the interior being particularly good. Exterior is very straight and solid, yes if you look closely you can find faults in the grey upper section where it has been painted to "two tone" the car, but no nothing you would rectify if you intend to work the car, or even just drive to enjoy it, just a real deep polish would make it even nicer.

History unfortunately is lacking, past its mot history and an invoice for the last work carried out. The owner took it in Px against a RR Shadow he was selling and as he already has a DS on his fleet, it is surplus to requirement. It was running fine but had a hesitation, eventually it was traced to water in the fuel system, this has been cured and now the motor is very smooth. I had to start it when, it was minus 3 here and had not been started for days, choke on, turn the key and off he went, no bother. I have taken it out for a quick drive and everything works nicely, engine is powerful, auto box functions as designed even the blower and heater work. Brakes pull up straight, it's a big car so you cannot take liberties but that's not how it's supposed to be driven. Steering is light and no creaks or groans from the suspension.
Inside the only negative I have found is the glass privacy screen, tends to stick half way up, figure with a bit of a lube it should be fine as the motor etc obviously works. It has the 7 seater optional seating which are in the same lovely condition as the rest of the interior. If you do want to use it as a limousine or wedding car, give it a polish and set it to work. Being this late in the production run, this particular car would of been one of the virtually hand built cars by a team at Jaguar as VDP had closed by then, I think that's why it has survived so well.
