How many manual Sovereign in LHD?

Post by mbracing »

Hallo from Italy.
We know from the records that only 355 examples of Daimler Sovereign (1966-69 420 type) has been produced in LHD. Anybody knows how many of those were fitted with manual gearbox? Books like “Jaguar S-Type and 420” (J.Taylor) says the majority of those were fitted with automatic gearboxes, therefore the manual ones should be very rare.
Many thanks in advance for the help.

Kevin Bennett might know. He's the editor of our Club magazine but he's not a forum member. He owns a Daimler Sovereign and several other classic cars. I've sent you an email with his email address.

Hi Mauro,
I have 4 LHD Sovereign 420 on my list.
1x in Verona Manual Transmission
1x in Vienna Manual Transmission
1x in Switzerland Auto
1x in California Auto

Plus 7 cars with RHD and Manual gearbox.
In the last few month a lot of these cars have turned up (LHD)for sale.
But I did not put them on my list already.

Chris
