Miles: 59, 180

Originally supplied by Paramount Jaguar in Derby, retaining its dealer sticker in the back window and a set of dealer plates (not fitted). Finished in Westminster Blue with cream leather interior, the Daimler presents excellently. The original felt-lined tool and spares box is present in the boot. This V12 Daimler was originally owned by the Rt Hon Eric Varley and a note on House of Lords headed paper states ‘This Daimler Double Six G853 NTO runs on lead replacement petrol.’ At the time of cataloguing, the consignor noted some oil smoke under the bonnet, seemingly emanating from the rocker cover and that the power steering has some ‘notches.’ An MOT history check shows the Daimler was last tested in February 2022 at 58, 703 so a good service will be needed before any extended road use.

The Series III Double Six was an improved version of the preceding ‘XJ’ based models. Designed to compete with the luxury German models, the new series of cars from Jaguar/ Daimler had to be a class leader in performance and luxury. The fuel injected V12 producing an ample 260bhp and transmitted by a reliable GM 3speed auto gearbox. The revised interior included an onboard computer, all 4 electric windows and electric sunroof.
