Daimler DS420 Parts Catalogue JC53 (1972)

If you are looking for vendors of DS420 spare parts go to my web-links page.

This manual JC53 (1971/72) is the oldest of three different Parts Catalogue editions that appeared for the DS420.

Note the following mistake on the page shown on the left: Chassis Numbers for LHD cars did commence from 1M.20001 onwards. So there is a 0 digit missing in this LHD number; the RHD number does have the correct format.

Some printings of this manual (but not the copy reproduced here) bear the following note on their last page: Printed in England by The Nuffield Press Limited, Cowley, Oxford 27/4 (81691) 5-71 150.

There actually was an older publication made available, limited to distributors only, when the DS420 was launched in 1968. It is a 62-page list, red cover, dated June 5, 1968, with the title Interim Parts List Section 1, Daimler Limousine, covering the Engine, Chassis and Electrical Equipment.. It contains not a single illustration. In its introduction it has the statement: "Section 2 covering the body and body fittings will be issued at a later date". The JDHT Archive does have copies of this "Section 1" publication, but the "Section 2" is lacking.

In 1976 this manual was superseded by the Parts Catalogue RTC9183A (Jan.1976), later reprinted as RTC9183B (July 1978). Around 1980 a separate manual RTC9887CD (or an earlier edition of this one: RTC9887CC) appeared for cars fitted with the General Motors GM400 gearbox.
