Daimler has enjoyed a long history in England. Founded in 1893 it was a completely separate company from the German Daimler. Originally an importer of German Daimler gasoline engines, over time it expanded into automobile production and produced many cars for English royalty. Daimler used a sleeve valve engine design and produced 6 and 12 cylinder engines that were powerful and quiet.

After World War II Daimler continued to produce unique cars, like the cars designed for and styled by Lady Docker, the wife of Daimler's chairman. Eventually, Daimler became part of Jaguar and shared platforms. Based on the Jaguar 420G chassis, Daimler produced 4141 limousines from 1968 to 1992. Most body panels for the DS420 were manufactured by Motor Panels, the bodies were assembled by Park Sheet Metal and the bare body was shipped to VandenPlas in London for final assembly. Some cars were sent to other coach builders for special bodies.

The late British Queen Mother had five of these cars. The Royal Courts of Denmark and Sweden also have this model in active service. Former users are the courts of Spain, Belgium, Luxemburg, Monaco, Morocco, Jordan, Bahrain, and many presidents. The most eccentric customer was the American billionaire Howard Hughes. He had a very special interior fitted, including a toiler under the rear bench.

This DS420 Limousine wears coachwork by Mulliner Park Ward.
