Very Rare car, one of 375 ever built which only an estimated 150 survive.

The Commission Plate/rego, drivetrain and trim on this car could easily add $10k value to any 4.2 XJC.

This is a restoration project best suited for someone with skills/ability to weld/panelbeat and paint. Labour would be the main expense to get this car going again. I have been advised that the completed market value of this car would be approx $35k.

Car was purchased some months ago sight unseen. Was advised by seller that it required new floors and front guards. Unfortunately this car has seen English roads and is structurally rotten - it cannot be economically fixed. The good news is that it comes with two other bare rolling bodies (Jaguar XJC - rusty & SII Daimler SWB - Rust free) which makes this an entirely feasible (and potentially valuable) project.

The leather interior is in amazing condition, and the engine is reported to be reconditioned at some stage. There is a sticker on the bodywork supporting rebuild of trans. Front brakes have been rebuilt and it appears to have relatively new suspension. Stainless exhaust system.

What is required to get this original matching nos vehicle on the road again would be a rebuild of the SII SWB by transferring the roof, B & C pillars and rear guards and doors from the Coupe. This can all be achieved on factory seams. (Rego for Daimler V12 is on hold)

Between the three cars there are many near new parts, very good chromework, and all the parts (excluding good door rubbers - Still obtainable ex- uk for 125 pounds) necessary to get this beauty going again.

The project is too big for me unfortunately, and due to other commitments, I must let it go.

Auction does not include Kent alloys shown on Daimler Coupe in some photos.

I can take more photos, but if you are serious, viewing would be recommended.
