"We wanted to sell our Vintage Car and were directed to Jesmond & Gloria of Waimak Classic Cars. The association was a pleasant experience as Jesmond was a dependable, helpful and considerate person to deal with. And so too was Gloria. Richard and I are happy to recommend the services of Jesmond at Waimak Classic Cars."Richard & Jean Gluyas, Christchurch, New Zealand
The Daimler coupes are the most prized by serious collectors, as they were only produced in such small numbers.
In total only 1,677 Daimler Sovereign coupe were produced, and only 407 of the Daimler Double Six coupes. Interestingly, they were never shipped to the North American market, most of them went to the UK and European segments.
A mere handful made their way down to Australia. In total only 2 Daimler Double Six coupes and 2 Daimler Sovereign coupes were imported by Jaguar Australia. These numbers have been 'swelled' with the private importation of 6 Daimler Double Six coupes and 18 Daimler Sovereign coupes. To date we only know of one Daimler Sovereign coupe in South Africa and two of them here in New Zealand.
What is interesting about the Daimler XJC is that nowhere on the vehicle is there a badge or sign that says XJC !
The Daimler variants were only given a single name badge positioned on the left hand side of the rear number plate. True to period they were in the 'script' style popular at that time. Both these models also had the distinctive 'fluted' chrome adornments to the engine grill and rear number plate, which were characteristic of all the Daimler models. They also had the round Daimler 'D' script badging on the top of the grill and in the centre of the steering wheel.
The Daimler coupes had a few minor differences from their Jaguar counterparts, apart from the badging and fluted chrome. The Daimler coupes had their door cappings covered with black vinyl, rather than the matching colour to the rest of the interior. They also came with the chromed steel wheels rather than the painted variety. The Daimler Double Six Coupes also came with Chrome Waist Mouldings along the side of each car.
