Daimler Majestic 1959


Specifications


Description

The Daimler Majestic was launched in 1958 and was in production until 1962. Only 1490 examples were produced and very few of them came to New Zealand.

This six cylinder, four door saloon, with three speed Borg Wagner auto transmission, power steering and vacuum-servo assisted four-wheel disk brakes (regarded as a first for a British production car), was very mechanically advanced for its time

Chassis number: 98379 and Engine number 90093, this car is NZ new, has Low Mileage.

Interior is very original and very well preserved.

Exterior is very tidy for age. Good paint and very presentable.

A real pleasure to drive with power steering – car is good mechanically and has a very good motor.

Like all previous postwar Daimlers, the Majestic was designed around a massive cruciform-braced box-section chassis equipped with coil-sprung independent front suspension, with a well located 'live' rear axle with semi-elliptic leaf springs.

The engine is an inline six of 3.8 litres (3794 cc), based on previous Daimler sixes with pushrod operated overhead valves giving a power output of over 147 brake horsepower at 4,400 rpm and produced 209 lb·ft (283 N·m) of torque at 2,800 rpm with a maximum speed of around 180 km/h (112 mph).

Car will be sold WOF'd and registered if sold in New Zealand.

SHIPPING / TRANSPORT CAN BE ORGANISED ON BUYER'S BEHALF AT BUYERS COST.
