Introduced in July 1958, the Daimler Majestic was powered by a 3794cc OHV V8 straight-six engine allied to three-speed automatic transmission. Based around a massive cruciform-braced box-section chassis equipped with coil-sprung independent front suspension, a well located 'live' rear axle, power steering and four-wheel disc brakes, the Daimler boasted a 100mph top speed. Trimmed in a luxurious manner that befitted former holders of the Royal Warrant, the Majestic remained in production until 1962 by which time some 1,490 are thought to have been made.

Finished in Golden Sand over Maroon with Maroon leather upholstery, ‘RBF 250’ is described by the vendor as being in ‘good overall’ condition with regards to its engine, automatic transmission, electrical equipment, interior trim, bodywork and paintwork. Supplied new by Reeve & Stedeford of Birmingham, the Daimler is believed but not warranted to have covered some 75,632 miles (atoc) from new in the hands of eight keepers. Certainly, the Majestic’s nicely patinated cabin lends credence to such moderate usage. Sporting a stainless steel exhaust and treated to a new battery in 2019, this charming Daimler is offered for sale with original owner’s handbook, sales brochure, wiring diagram, Heritage certificate, buff logbook, collection of old invoices, old MOT's, Tax discs and owners club correspondence.
