1955-1962 DAIMLER 104/Majestic specifications Classic and Performance Car

Although the 1954 Daimler 104 looked very much like the Regency it replaced, the structure was bulked up, the brakes were improved and the 3468cc six-pot engine was granted more power. A special version was the Lady’s Model, with a more ‘feminine’ interior including walnut veneer, satin chrome, picnic gear and, of all things, a gold-propelling pencil! 50 customers bought one. In 1958, the body put on considerable weight to become the Majestic. The bigger 3794cc engine pitched it directly against Jaguar.
