1977 Daim­ler Dou­ble Six Coupé

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

A very well cared-for ex­am­ple rather than be­ing re­stored, Sil­ver­stone’s range-top­ping Dou­ble Six Coupé was low-key suave­ness per­son­i­fied. It had changed hands sev­eral times af­ter be­ing sold by its orig­i­nal Lon­don owner in 1983, but de­spite that it had never cov­ered any se­ri­ous mileage, com­ing to the sale with 33,000 miles on the clock. The body­work, paint and in­te­rior be­lied both its age and num­ber of own­ers, and it was surely the best XJ-de­rived Coupé com­ing to auc­tion in many years. Sim­ply de­light­ful in ev­ery re­spect, and still ar­guably more in­ter­est­ing and de­sir­able than a Cor­niche fixed-head.
