1974 Daimler 4.2 Sovereign 59,000 (Warranted) £7100.00 + buyers premium


This is very fine example of a LWB  Daimler sovereign finished in silver with superb red leather and walnut interior.  She has had a total of 3 owners from new.

Purchased new by a Mr I Bradshaw in 1974, the vehicle was sold to its second owner Mr B Salter in 1979. It was used until 1989 before being stored in a garage until 1998. The car was then purchased by Mr Neville Finch as an MOT failure. Work carried out after his purchase includes a new exhaust, new tyres, 2 new fron wings due to rust under headlights, 2 new seals, both sides resprayed, cylinder head fitted, new stainless steel exhaust in 2014, new headlining in 2014. The vehicle transferred to Mr Finch’s nephew and the vehicle has stayed in the family until present.

She comes with a book pack, old tax discs and a number of reference books. Also included is a large history file from 1998 to date and 18 old MOTs. The first shows the mileage to be 56,542 in July 1998 and in April 17 the mileage is 59,565 a total of approx 3000 miles in 19 years. The vendor has warranted the mileage.

Auctioneers notes: The vendor has owned this car for 19 years and the car is a credit to him with superb interior and excellent bodywork. I think fantastic value for money.
