Daimler Double Six Vanden Plas
Daimler - the marque preferred by the British aristocracy and the personal drive of the Queen. Based on the Jaguar XJ but with all the trimmings. In beautiful 1970s style this has the black vinyl roof, lots of chrome, leather, walnut and enough space in the boot to put your aristocratic fox-hunting gear (according to the sales brochure). The body colour is aubergine, the leather chamois colour and the lambswool rugs an aubergine colour too. The interior and exterior are like brand new with no fading cracking or dents. This articular car was originally bought by an upwardly mobile bookmaker in Manchester. And of course cars like this ften get featured in The Sweeney being driven by the bad guys. In this the year of the 50th anniversary of the Jaguar XJ this is the ultimate 1970s XJ.
