I first came upon this 40,000 mile Daimler Sovereign abandoned on waste ground close to where I worked early in 2003. I made some enquiries and established that the car had been sold by a local auction company some years previously as part of a deceased estate. Apparently the buyer paid a deposit, but never returned to collect the car. Over time the Daimler got moved around inside the auction premises before eventually getting kicked outside - which is where I found it.
Subsequently purchased by me as a runner, all complete but without MOT, for only eighty quid! This car was notable for having a manual + overdrive gearbox and wind-up windows (very unusual on a Daimler).
The Daimler soon gave up its low mileage manual gearbox and back axle to my XJ6 Se.1 4.2 (1L32624DN), which was undergoing a comprehensive mechanical overhaul at the time.
I left this Daimler with the independent Jag specialist who was carrying out the work on my XJ6. He was hoping to use it to create an XJ12 Se.1 replica, using a surplus V12 engine which he already had in his workshop. However I noticed the Daimler was still sitting in his yard as late as 2014, by which time it was in a pretty sorry state. I suspect it has since been scrapped.
