Many small changes were incorporated during these 25 years. The vehicles are used extensively as official state cars in several countries, including by the British, Danish and Swedish royal houses. The DS420 began production in 1968, replacing the DR450 which had been based on the Majestic Major. Unlike its predecessor, it had no Daimler engineering, but was entirely a Jaguar product, utilising the 4.2 litre version of the Jaguar XK straight-six engine. The (English) Daimler company was founded in Coventry, England in 1893. It was named after the German inventor Gottlieb Daimler, but never had any business relations

About this Daimler Double Six XJ
About this Daimler Double Six First registered August 1977 to Barber Greene Ltd, for their chairman to be chauffeured in. Barber Greene covered 35,000 miles before selling it in late 1979 to the Bank of Boston for their president to be chauffeured in. The Bank of Boston only covered a further 8,000 miles in the eighteen years that they owned it before selling it on to Spearpoint Bland, a London insurance company who kept it for five years. Since 2002 this fabulous Daimler has only had two private owners bringing it to a total of 5. As the supplied Heritage Certificate confirms, this Daimler Double Six is presented in its original colours of almost flawless Amethyst with Black Everflex Roof and dark Olive Hides and Natural Carpets. It really is in as close to mint condition as we have ever seen. As this was the top of the range it is fitted with everything possible including the Daimler accoutrements of individual reading lamps and armrests. There is a comprehensive history file with this car containing numerous detailed invoices, the original service book and Daimler Unipart Passport and 25 old MOTs indicating that the low mileage is correct The last MOT was issued on 1st October 2

1968 MK2 Daimler Super Smooth 250 V8 Automatic 88956 miles Background to Sale I am retired and buy, renovate, rust proof and then sell on clic vehicles. My role is to restore the vehicle and set it up properly for the next 20-40 years of use. The job is done properly regardless of time. I love these MK2 Daimlers as they are an up market version of the MK2 Jaguar. They were designed to be a more refined and a much smoother cruiser than the Jag. The V8 engine is much smoother and quieter and the straight 6's used in the Jags. Also, the Daimlers, being targeted at the Company Director market, were better appointed then the equivalent jags Naturally I drive them as much as possible to enjoy them and also to find any faults that I then fix. I have now driven this car approximately 400 miles, mostly in one long drive to my home. I drive the car though a range of conditions including A & B roads and motorways. On the motorway I will normally drive at 70MPH but have taken it up to 80 mph to ensure will it perform reliably on continental roads at their speed limits. Please note everything relating to the mileage, and all of the information included in the material below, is evidenced by documents and receipts that will be given to the buyer along with the V5. So you can rest ured it is all true and that this is a truly exceptional vehicle. The CARS HISTORY & MOT certificates 88956 Miles The car was first delivered to the Messrs Arrowsmith of Bilston, Wolverhampton on Saturday the 30/11/1968. The buyer will receive an extensive file of documents including The original delivery Service Policy dated 30/11/1968 The original Service Manual from 29/1/1969 through to 15/8/1978 at 60,572 miles Complete set of MOT Certificates dated from 23/11/1971 to 14/4/2017 proving shown mileage is genuine MOT Certificate dated 13/05/2017 showing mileage at 88571. The Minor advisories shown on the certificate have now been corrected Many, many receipts going back over the life of the vehicle At the time of writing this appraisal the exact mileage shows at 88956 although this will increase as I continue to use the car. Tax and MOT free, low insurance as at May 2018 cars that are 40 years old will no longer require any MOT inspections. That means it current MOT certificate should cover the car until they are no linger required. 40 years old are already free of road tax. You just register the car in your name as normal but you don't have to pay out any money. The car is insured for £18900 and that cost me a bit over £100 for a year on a 5000 estimated mileage Paint and Brightwork The car has been repainted in the past but is still in very good workable condition. The photos show the attractive condition and colour of the paintwork. The chrome brightwork is superb having been replaced and restored in past. Even the fender mounted side rear vision mirrors have been replaced with new ones. Please note the photo of the taillight mounting was taken in the rain. It is perfect like the rest. RUST - This car has no rust underneath. The car has had past repairs including the replacement of sills on both sides. Interior Leather, Carpet and Woodwork Seats All the seats are original and have been brilliantly restored. So, they have all their history and character showing but look superb. They have also been treated with leather conditioner so they flex as they should No leaks and new door seals There are no leaks in the car, probably partly as a result of all the doors seals having been replaced Head lining A headlining kit was purchased on the 25/05/20178) and installed. A headlining pad and new Draught excluder was also purchased and installed at the same time. Woodwork The woodwork is mostly original hand in excellent condition and must have been restored at some time in the past. The front dash top cap, is the most important part of the woodwork. It is the piece that receives most sun damage. So I buy a professional manufactured new one. It is not cheap but is better than restoring an old one. Modern glues used in the lamination and veneering process are so much improved over the ones made in the late 1950's to 1960's The car is fitted with an immobiliser! Carpet All the carpet in the car were replaced by professionally manufactured pure wool carpets on the 18/05/2017 and so are superb. The Carpets inside the car are jet black (and so doesn't photograph properly inside the car) and the boot is a dark grey. The carpets have protective overlay carpet rungs made from the same carpet to protect the fitted carpet underneath, No expense has been spared when completing this car! Engine I have had extensive work completed on the engine to make it run properly. The gaskets on the inlet and exhaust manifolds were replaced seal the engine properly. The carburettors were overhauled and all gaskets replaced. The electrical system, plugs leads etc has all been overhauled, It runs really sweetly. This small block V8 engine has always been much quieter and smoothly than the Jaguar MK2 engines but still having good economy. Runs on unleaded. Gearbox The gearbox is exceptionally good and changes gears very smoothly. Absolutely firm with good positive and easy change with good movement and no strange noises. It is the correct Borgwarner 35T gearbox which has always has had a great reputation. Wheels The car was converted to later (better) steel bright chrome spoke wheels that take Tubeless tyres. These are the better wheels. Unusually, even the spare is a full, chrome spoke wheel. The wire wheels are in excellent condition but are in need of a good clean with the specialist cleaning brush and polishing compound. The receipts will be provided with the sale. Also see the photos Tyres The tyres are Bridgestone RbG03 185 R-15 Tubeless steel belt radials. All 5 are all in excellent condition with deep tread. Brakes The all wheel power disc brakes are excellent having been very recently serviced. The vehicle stops quickly and in a straight line, even under very, very hard emergency style braking. Steering and new wood steering wheel. The steering is tight and straight for a 1960's clic car. The steering was repaired in July 2017 with the top ball joints being replaced. The steering wheel has just been replaced with a Daimler original steering wheel which has been finished in wood effect and it matches the wooden dashboard beautifully. Battery - Has been recently been replaced with a new 5 year warranty battery. Bad bits The car is pretty well finished but there a few small things the buyer can do or have done. Conversion to waterless coolant. You could consider doing a once only change over to waterless coolant. It Is much better than water based coolants as it doesn't cause corrosion in the engine and heating system, and as it can't ever boil (it is not water) it won't ever need toping up or changing in the future. Oil leaks. Until quite recent times British cars were know as "wet" engines because the seals ALWAYS developed oil leaks. It was often said this was a delibee deign feature to prevent rust in your concrete driveway. It is something you learn to live with as feature of this lovely old car. You just check the oil periodically and top it up as required You could choose to stop it for a while by having it fixed in a garage. They need to get it up in a hoist and then simply drop the oil sump would need to be dropped off the bottom of the engine. Then the gasket is replaced and the sump replaced on the engine. Doing it at home is a bit awkward as the car does not have a very high ground clearance like a FWD and it is hard to get under. However be under no illusion, the leaks will return because they are a design issue. Grease and or replace some control wires- DIY - The following could do with some DIY attention. The wire that connects the bonnet locking handle in the cabin to the lock at the front of the bonnet is stiff. It does work but next summer, it would be nice to loosen it off, remove it, clean it and grease it and then put it back in. In the unlikely event there is some cable damage, it can simply be replaced. It's a satisfying job that you can do yourself at home. Heater Control wires are similar to the bonnet wire except that it may be necessary to grease and service the heater control tap as well. The tap can be replaced very cheaply and easily (about £12.00 new The car does not have, and has never had, a Radio Aerial. It works well in CD player mode. The radio works but is crackly without an aerial, but I really don't want to cut car to mount an aerial. I have just heard of an internally mounted aerial you might look into. Summary The car drives beautifully, stops and starts just as you would expect from all of the information above. The Engine, Gearbox running gear and every part of this car work as they should (except for the minor issues in the Bad Bits section). The price is for the vehicle in current condition as described in the specifications sheet. I expect you to inspect the car and test drive it prior to paying for the car. In some limited cars I will take a 10% non refundable deposit to secure and hold a car for a buyer. I will deliver the car to a shipping agent or to meet a buyer at a ferry port. All in all, a fantastic car which will bring a real smile to your face You can call me, John 01243 763 939 or - 07783 685 042

Daimler’s flagship DE series debuted in 1946 as their largest and most expensive car on offer. The chassis was a fairly conventional design with x-bracing and independent front suspension; Hotchkiss drive rear axle, and Girling hydro-mechanical brakes. Two versions were available, the 138-inch wheelbase DE27 which was powered by the Daimler Twenty Seven inline-six cylinder engine (named such for its taxable horsepower rating), or the range-topping DE36 which featured a grand 147-inch wheelbase and was powered by a 5.4 liter inline-eight cylinder engine. The Thirty Six was essentially Britain’s last straight eight (Rolls Royce did use one in the "heads of state only" Phantom IV, but only eighteen were ever produced). It is a marvelously smooth, overhead valve unit with nine main bearings and a 150 horsepower output. Every bit of that power was needed to pull along the large and opulent bodies that were fitted to the DE36 chassis. Just 205 examples of the Thirty Six were built between 1946 and 1953, with a great many finding favor with the Royal Families of Afghanistan, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Thailand as well as at home in England. At the time the DE36 was built, Daimler counted Hooper & Co. Coachbuilders among its subsidiaries. Hooper had a long tradition of supplying coaches and motor bodies for the British Royal Family and was considered to be a purveyor of the finest quality bodies available. Hooper would stop at nothing to meet their clients’ wishes. Their long association with Daimler produced some fabulous and memorable motorcars. Hooper’s signature post-war style was fabulously elegant; with long, graceful sweeping lines and exquisite detailing. To promote Daimler and Hooper, BSA Chairman Sir Bernard Docker and his wife Lady Docker (who incidentally was made director of Hooper) commissioned a series of show cars for the annual Earl’s Court Motor Show. A run of six different style “Docker Daimlers” were produced; three on the DE36 chassis, consisting of The Green Goddess of 1947, The Golden Daimler of 1951 and the Blue Clover coupe in 1952. The 1953 Silver Flash was built on a 2 ½ liter Conquest Century chassis, and the final two, Stardust and Golden Zebra, sat atop DK400 chassis. Of all the Docker Daimlers, it is the stunning Green Goddess that attracted the most attention, enough so that it spawned a very short production run – with approximately 7 made. Of those seven originals, four are known to survive, each slightly different from the next, with our featured example built in 1948. This fine example was restored some years ago in Europe, and remains in good order throughout. It is painted in a very attractive burgundy and red combination much like its sister car, and the body is pleasingly well detailed and respectably presented. The original show car earned its name thanks to the metallic jade green paintwork applied to the magnificently sweeping and curvaceous drophead body. Today, all cars are known by this nickname regardless of color. Beyond the fabulous Hooper-designed bodywork, it is the sheer scale of the Green Goddess that really captured the attention of show goers. The wheelbase is a massive 147 inches long, and the body is a full 20 feet in length and 78 inches wide at the front. As a point of reference, the original Land Rover rode on an 80 inch wheelbase. The body was loaded with interesting details and features such as a hydro-electrically operated soft top which disappeared beneath a body-color metal cover. Side windows were electrically operated and headlights were faired-in to the front wings behind Perspex covers with fluted chrome trims that mimicked that of the signature Daimler radiator shell. Rear wheel spats are affixed to sprung hinges and built-in jacks at each corner make for civilized servicing should one encounter a puncture. In spite of the aluminum construction of the body, all of those details add up and the Green Goddess weighs in at over 6,000 pounds. The tan leather interior is equally as magnificent, flamboyant and beautifully styled as the exterior. As the DE36 Green Goddess is wider at the front than the rear, seating is a unique 3+2 arrangement, with large leather chairs up front for three, and two individual seats in the rear. The rear seats are cleverly positioned so passengers have a clear view of the road ahead, and if that isn’t enough, they can be raised, theater-style, to allow rear passengers to see over those in front. The driver is treated to a fabulous view down the impossibly long bonnet and faces a gracefully curved wood dash, peppered with bespoke instruments and ivory-colored switchgear. Speed can be registered in either KM or Miles, a feature that hinted at the cross-continental ability of the big Daimler. A column mounted gear selector controls a Daimler pre-select Fluid-Flywheel transmission for seamless, smooth shifting. Ineffable elegance and breathtaking presence define the Daimler DE36 Green Goddess. Sir Bernard Docker was certainly no wallflower; he very much enjoyed using his very special motorcar, and it must have made quite an impact on the narrow British B-roads! With just four known survivors, the Hooper Green Goddess is undeniably an extremely collectible and very important automobile. For many, it marks the high point for both Daimler and the Hooper & Co. Coachbuilders, an impossibly grand statement in the waning days of the custom coachbuilding era.
Lowered price from €19.950 -> €17.500 The Daimler 2.5-V8 (or 2½ litre V8 ) was launched late in 1962, and was essentially a rebadged Jaguar Mk2, but fitted with Daimler's 2.5 litres V8 engine; aside from the engine, fluted (furrowed brow) grille and rear number plate surround, badges, drive-train and some interior details (such as a split-bench front seat and a black enamel steering wheel) the Daimler 2.5- was otherwise indistinguishable from the Jaguar Mark 2. The 2.5-V8 was the first Jaguar designed car to have the Daimler badge. The Daimler V8 engine was more compact and therefore lighter than the six cylinder engine used in the Jaguar Mark 2, and weighed approximately 50 kg ("1 cwt") less. Spring and damper settings were revised accordingly to suit the altered weight distribution. At the end of 1965, the final drive ratio had been changed from 4.55:1 to 4.27:1, addressing complaints that the car as launched in 1963 had needed to exceed its recommended rev limit in order to reach its top speed, with a corresponding penalty in fuel consumption and engine noise and wear. The testers found the car refined and well equipped with efficient, if rather heavy, brakes. The engine and tra
