"Hi Gloria and Jesmond, What a neat experience it was purchasing a car from Waimak Classic Cars. I LOVE IT !! It’s in amazing condition for 25 years old, a great driving experience and very very pleasing on the eye to look at. You’ll remember my wife called first and said she wanted to buy this car for her husband’s Christmas present, she had only looked at it online for 30 seconds haha. Buying a car sight unseen is quite a leap of faith to be honest, however we were really inspired by the magnificent array of cars you have sold over the years, what an amazing tribute to motoring, we feel quite honoured to have purchased a car from Waimak Classic Cars. Thank you. Kind regards Bill & Michele."Bill & Michelle Fisher, Tauranga, New Zealand
For more than two decades, the Daimler DS420 limousine was the default long-wheelbase mayoral and funereal transport in the UK and as a consequence, it's probably one of the most recognisable cars on the road today - despite being out of production since 1992.
The history of the DS420 was interesting - it replaced two cars when launched, the Daimler DK400 and the Vanden Plas Princess - and combined the best bits of the two companies.
It was based on the underpinnings of the Jaguar MkX, was powered by its straight-six 4.2-litre XK engine, and looked awesome thanks to styling by Vanden Plas.
