"Dear Jesmond & Gloria, A very big unexpected surprise on a perfect Wednesday afternoon 22nd May, our lovely Triumph arrived at the front door. She travelled very well and arrived with no damage, just a couple of rub marks which polished out. We were very pleased and excited to meet her, as you can imagine she got a thorough looking over and out for a short drive. We have booked her into our mechanic this coming Monday for a full mechanical service before we take her out on the open road, this is a good way to get to know her and to understand what her future needs will be. Thank you so much for your card, bottle of wine and Classic Driver magazine, the seat belts are still in the box and will probably stay there. You have been a lovely couple to deal with, everything and more has progressed as you said it would, our very best wishes for your future success."Gary & Joyce Parker, Hastings, New Zealand
The Daimler Motor Company is possibly the oldest British motoring name around, dating from 1896 it has been through more ups and downs than most, at its peak it provided elegant transport for Royals in the ‘20s and ‘30s to a low period post war where a number of owners including BSA, Ford and British Leyland failed to reverse its ailing fortunes. However in the latter part of the 20th century, under Jaguar ownership, the Daimler badge returned as a luxurious version of the new XJ saloon.
The famous Double Six name was revived for the V12 versions of the new car to evoke memories of the 1920s originals. On the outside the Daimler Double Six looked very similar to the Jaguar XJ, sharing most of its body panels and trim, however calling it a badge engineered XJ does it an injustice as it was a much more sumptuously equipped and had bespoke suspension settings and trim options.
Reviewers of the time felt the Daimler was a worthy alternative to a Rolls Royce or Bentley at a fraction of the cost. Such was its cachet that a bespoke long wheelbase version was used as Queen Elizabeth's official vehicle for a number of years.
