Daimler 1958-1999 - 2018 Market Review

Demand for Daimler limousines is going to remain strong for as long as the wedding and special-event hire industry survives.

DS420s weren’t sold new here and are a strange looking amalgam of Jaguar underpinnings and funereal Brit coachwork.

Leaping into the Jeeves seat costs $35,000 or pay $10,000 less for a classic Majestic.

The Jaguar-bodied Daimlers haven’t moved much at all, especially the XJ-based cars which seem stuck at under $12,000.

The 420-clone Sovereign can make $20,000 and the V8-250 with Jag Mark2 bodywork offers decent value in the $20-25,000 price range.

Manual/overdrive 250s are very scarce and expensive.

2.5 V8 1962-69 $21,625 [12]

Majestic 1959-64 $22,000 [4]

Sovereign 1966-69 $19,330 [3]

Sovereign 1970-86 $8965 [6]

DS420 1968-92 $34,240 [8]
