1961 Daimler Dart SP250 - 70k miles, history back to new For Sale

This outstanding B Spec Daimler Dart SP250 has arrived with us from Aberdeenshire with a genuine warranted mileage of just 70,000 and an outstanding history back to new including the original bill of sale. The Daimler has had just four owners from new, has been subject of a major restoration to a top class condition and has had a fully documented engine rebuild by Daimler V8 specialists just 1000 miles ago. Adding further to the desirability of this car, it does have its correct, original factory engine. The 5800 WY was supplied new by Tunniclffe’s of Ilkley and even the original delivery note from Daimler to the supplying dealership is with the history. The car was ordered new by a Ronald Wilson Esq in Ilkley on the 25th April 1961 costing just £1098.6.9.

The first owner kept the car 27 years and kept all invoices and documentation of early service history. Within the first three years of ownership services were carried out at 6623, 7763, 9142, 10097, 13311, 14571, 16690, 18325, 20654, 21724 and 23430 miles on the 11th August 1964. Records in the history file confirm a speedo change at 24232 miles so from service history dating from October 1964 we know the Dart was serviced at 24697, 25731, 26530, 27465, 27946, 30015, 33233, 35261, 36437, 37800, 42232, 43736, 48111 and 49326 miles in July 1969. The wonderful original typed invoices make fascinating reading and meticulously detail exactly what work was being carried out on the car. From 1970 to 1988 the Daimler was unused and was later sold on by the owners family to its second registered owner. The Dart was then owned by a Yorkshire based brewer who kept the car for two years before selling it to the third owner in Tadcaster.

5800 WY stayed in Tadcaster with its third owner for 23 years and was subject of a major restoration. During the late 1980's and 1990's the Daimler Dart was regularly on the Yorkshire show and rally scene. Paperwork and trophies with the car confirm it attended events to include The Yorkshire Evening Press ‘York Historic Vehicle Rally' in 1989, 1990, 1991 and 1992. The Daimler also attended The Yorkshire Thoroughbred Car Club Rally at Lotherton Hall in 1993, S.Y.M.T.E.S 1994 Rally, DLOC International Centenary Rally in June 1996, Harewood Classic also in June 1996 and Tadcaster Classic Car Show in 1997. From 2003 to 2013 the Daimler was then unused and changed hands to its fourth owner in Aberdeen.

Having had ten years off the road, the most recent owner put the Daimler through an extensive program of work. The most significant was an engine rebuild to include re-bore, new pistons, new bearings, crankshaft rear oil seal modification, re-profiled camshaft, new hydraulic tensioners, rebuilt cylinder head to unleaded specification, overhauled oil pump, oil pump shaft bush modification, new core plugs, timing chain and full detailing and balancing on completion. The engine rebuild was completed in 2015, total recorded mileage from new at this stage being 68587. Further work included complete engine replacement hose set , replacement heavy duty stainless steel hose clips, all new ignition items, re-conditioned wiper motor, brand new full wiring loom, all new switches were removed, detailed and cleaned, a replacement stainless instrument panel fitted, a new heater matrix, re-conditioned and powder coated heater box, fully rebuilt carburettors and all engine bay ancillaries and parts removed and polished as required. Further cosmetic detail work included re-chroming bumpers, over-riders, badge bar and ashtray. Since completion of this work the Daimler has covered less than 1000 miles and has attended several shows and rallies and has picked up some further silverware winning second in class at a recent event. Events attended in Scotland include Drive Day Aberdeen 2017, A taste of Grampian 2017, Blast from the Past NE Scotland 2017, GVRS 2017, Crathes Vintage Rally 2018 and Kildrummy Rally 2018. The most recent owner has kept up to the fabulous history with 500 digital photos on file covering step by step the restoration work carried out and pictures of the various rallies the car has attended.

5800 WY has arrived with us in exceptional order and the condition certainly matches the impressive history and provenance. The Daimler presents superbly with an excellent looking bodyshell with lovely fitting doors and gaps. The paint finish is excellent with a deep, gleaming finish and chrome work is first class. The interior trim is beautifully presented and has aged superbly, the hood is excellent, so is the boot area and the engine bay is of a show winning standard. The underside of the vehicle is excellent with a strong, top class chassis and on the road performance is equally as impressive as the car looks. The rebuilt engine is first class holding correct oil pressure, performance of the wonderful V8 engine is impressive and the four speed gearbox changes up and down smoothly. The Dart handles superbly with its upgraded rack and pinion steering and brakes, suspension, cooling and electrical systems are all in great condition.
