The Jaguar 420, Daimler Sovereign origins began with the Jaguar Mark 2. Jaguar thought that a similar sized car with high standards of technical sophistication and luxury would be successful. A combination of the 4.2-litre engine with the compact saloon body was expected to have market appeal.
Jaguar initiated development of a new saloon based on the S-Type, retaining its independent rear suspension but adding a twin-carburettor version of the 4.2-litre power plant, and frontal styling more akin to that of the Mark X. The new car was released in August 1966 in the form of two badge-engineered models, the Jaguar 420 and the Daimler Sovereign. Just 10,236 Jaguars and 5,824 Daimlers were built.
This very early example of Jaguar's 420, comes with a service manual, some history, some old MoTs, historic vehicle taxation class, and V5. A "Barn Find", to be sold without reserve. The car does run but needs a battery.
