Produced between 1968 and 1992, the Daimler DS420 was originally designed by Daimler for official use, and was a popular car with chauffeur drivers, hoteliers and undertakers. The car has also been popular with royal households – including those of the UK, Sweden, Denmark and Luxembourg. Presented is a well maintained and restored 1985 example that has been kept as part of a wedding fleet. The car is also known to have been featured in an episode of BBC's EastEnders in 2007 (Episode 3403), with a full documentation and pictures accompanying the car in the history file. The car is overall very solid and has not been used since 2018. The car however has recently been recommissioned and is now running and driving well. The vendor will also obtain a new MOT for the car by the time of sale. The date of restoration is believed to be around 2000, and overall the car is in a good and useable condition.
