Chris Reed’s 1968 Daimler Majestic Major

Found in a field in 2013, Chris Reed’s Daimler is the seventh-from-last Majestic Major made. ‘It’s the last Daimler designed prior to the Jaguar takeover of 1960,’ he explains. The Majestic Major was a slightly lengthened version of Daimler’s DF361 Majestic, using the new Edward Turner designed 4.5-litre V8 in place of Daimler’s 3.8-litre six. Despite it having sat outside for more than a decade, the car is in surprisingly solid condition. It’s not missing any items of bodywork or trim, but will need restoration to return to show standard. With so few left, that’s Chris’s long term intention.
