Classic Car Overview

This elegant DS420 is a fine example of Daimlers exclusive factory-built limousine. Riding on a stretched version of the Jaguar 420G platform the DS420 shared the big Jaguars independent suspension four-wheel disc brakes and powerful XK twin-cam inline six with dual carburetors. The bodies were built by Motor Panels Ltd then finished and opulently trimmed in traditional wood leather and wool by Vanden Plas coachbuilders. The Daimler DS420 was among the last factory-built limousines available anywhere serving as the official transport of the British Royal Family for many from its introduction in 1968 through the end of production a remarkable 24 years later in 1992.According to the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Certificate this DS420 Limousine was built on June 29 1976 and sold new later that year via offical distributor Reeve & Stedeford of Birmingham UK. It is understood that early in its life the car belonged to Mr. Nick Taylor in the UK. In the late 1970s he brought it to the United States aboard the Queen Elizabeth II with the intention of using it on an American vacation. On board the ocean liner he met the grandfather of the cars most recent owners who purchased it from Taylor in 1980. Since then the Daimler remained in the same family until recently. It is presented in a handsome combination of black with royal claret body sides and original olive leather trim. The car is largely unrestored except for some paintwork (the claret paint is a later addition) and appears well-maintained and with an honest usable character. It features factory air conditioning electric windows dual jump seats and a unique radio console for the rear compartment. Burl wood trim covers the dash door caps and division panel. Included in the sale is an original handbook service charts factory parts catalogue and a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate.If youre a collector and have vintage cars for sale contact us today and learn more about our classic car consignment program.
