The Daimler has mot until 19 February 2018 it comes with a massive history file with no expense spare (Please see photo) The paperwork is all documented by every single receipt from this Daimlers enthusiast most of the paperwork is all back to back we laid just some of it out for you to see.

This Daimler has come from a true enthusiast and has kept the car in tip top condition the car was always kept in the garage, the paintwork is excellent for a car of this age, the interior is also excellent with immaculate clean carpets there’s no cracks to the dashboard through sun damage which was quite common for these cars, the doors have a real solid clunk when closing a real quality car.

It’s in superb order and drives absolutely fantastic with superb oil pressure and a beautiful smooth gear change, under the bonnet has a very clean engine bay (Please see photo) The elderly gentleman had the engine rebuilt in 2007 when the rear engine oil seal was replaced and it has done very little miles since.

This Car oozed quality in the 1970s and you had to be quite wealthy to own one, 3,235 of these first generations were built a badged engine version the Daimler Double 6 was introduced in 1972 revealing the Daimler model name of 1926/1938 only 534 short wheel versions were made the short wheel base offered here has been owned for over 32 years and there had only been 2 previous owners its displaying 32,550 miles, there is a letter from the first owner confirming 39,000 miles after 12 years and had a speedo change at 48,975 and is now showing 32,550 miles.

The XJ12 version was announced in July 1972, featuring simplified grille treatment and was powered by a 5.3 litre V12 engine. The car as presented at that time was the worlds only mass-produced 12-cylinder four-door car and with a top speed “around 140mph” as the “fastest full four-seater available in the world today”. Although it had been the manufacturers intention from launch that the XJ would take the twelve-cylinder engine, its installation was nonetheless a tight fit and providing adequate cooling had evidently been a challenge for the engineers designing the installation.

This Daimler is a very solid example indeed and is well worth viewing if you would like to arrange an appointment to book a test drive at Craner Classic Cars, The Gate house, Nottingham
