1977 Daimler Sovereign Coupé (no longer owned)

This page is dedicated to the Daimler Sovereign Coupé 4.2 Auto I used to own.

The car has received an extensive restoration, including a full engine rebuild by Nene Jag specialists, Nov, 2008 at 51500 miles (now 57300). Click below for full details:

A thorough preparation was carried out including new sills and Waxoyl treatment prior to being beautifully refinished in British racing green metallic by Colbrook of Peterborough who are Rolls Royce/Bentley specialists. It is finished off with gold pin stripe body (painted not tape). The entire process was documented on a 29 photo CD-ROM.

Most of the chrome work has been replaced, the original black vinyl roof is perfect.

The interior leather is refinished in brown with new carpet trim in Cinnamon (by B.A.S.). A new head lining was fitted and the steering wheel is wood rimmed to match dash panel.

Road wheels are lattice alloys, these were stripped and repainted and fitted with new P7 Pirelli tyres, including the spare.

Car is complete with handbook, tool kit, Bluetooth radio/CD player and new Cobra alarm.

All work has been carried out by professionals on a money-no-object basis with total costs  approximately £20,000. All works including the change of registration are fully documented with receipts.

The original registration number was WYD 374 S, registered on 01/08/77. The current registration was added in 2010 and is obviously totally unique to this model.

Below are just some of the extensive photos available for this car. Click on an image for a larger view.
