Finished in Juniper green and specified with the most desirable options which include leather interior, chrome wheels and tinted glass. Three previous owners from new.
I have owned the Coupe for approx. 3 years and it was with the previous owner since 1990, in which time I believe the car was little used. Comes with service history and a file full of previous history, old MOT certificates dating back to 1987 and invoices from various Jaguar specialists. It also still has the original complete BL Blue Super Cover Handbook and Daimler Passport to Service, warranty letter from Jaguar and original sales Brochure.
The Coupe was in great condition when I purchased it and had just had a new headlining fitted. I have since had service works undertaken including brakes refurbed with new rear calliper, SU Carbs stripped and serviced, replacement of ball joints and track rod end as well as a small number of detail repairs such as intermittent hazard switch, new wipers, new window washer pump etc.
A small number of spares will be included such as new headlamp and rear window seals.
I have just had the Coupe MOT’d, which it passed with no advisories and have also just had it serviced at my local classic Jag specialist.
Fantastic and cool looking car, especially when you drop all four windows to show off the pillarless coupe design. Always gets admiring looks and comments.
Only selling due to commitment to another classic car project.
Some model history:
The launch of the Jaguar XJ6 in 1968 and its Daimler sister that followed in 1969, redefined expectations in the luxury car sector. The new model truly 'moved the goalposts', setting new standards in comfort, refinement and handling. A waiting list was quick to form and enthusiasm remained strong upon the introduction of the Series II cars in 1973. The standard or long wheelbase saloon models were joined later that year by a striking new variant, an elegant pillarless coupé, all being built on the short-wheelbase chassis and with black vinyl-covered roofs. Available with either the 4.2 litre straight-six XK unit or the 5.3 litre, V12, this handsome design retained the saloon's supple all-round independent coil and wishbone suspension, disc brakes and power steering. Performance was predictably strong with both variants reputedly able to exceed 120mph.
Rarer than its Jaguar brother, just 1,677 Daimler Sovereign 4.2 Coupés are thought to have been produced by the time production ended in 1978 with 613 built in 1977 and only six in the final year.
