1959 Daimler SP250 Dart For Sale by Auction

H&H Classics Limited - Imperial War Museum, Duxford Auction Viewing Day: Tuesday 18th June 2019 Auction Day: Wednesday 19th June 2019 @ 13:00. Estimate: £20,000 - £25,000 Registration No:50 AOG Chassis No:100578 MOT:Exempt - Current ownership since 2001 - New hood - Offered with handbooks and old MOTs Further info: This Daimler SP250 Dart is a very early, first-year production car, supplied new in November 1959 by famous Birmingham motor dealers Reeve & Stedeford. Marked by front corner chrome quarter flashes (or 'whiskers') in place of a bumper, recessed door handles and rear overriders, these early cars have a design purity that is somewhat lacking in later models. With chassis number 100578, this car is numerically the eighth right-hand drive example built, just two after the British Motor Show example (100576), potentially making it an historically significant car. Daimler's first foray into convertible two-seater sports cars, the SP250 Dart is a powerful beast. Combining a 2,548cc V8 with a lightweight fibreglass body and four Girling disc brakes gave a 0-60mph time of nine seconds and a top speed of 120mph, sparkling performance for the era. A generous boot and rear bench 'child' seat makes it a practical car with a great deal of luggage space, and the windows wind up (something lacking in many of its competitors). This right-hand drive example has belonged to the current owner since 2001 and comes complete with heritage certificate, workshop manual, original owner's handbook, and a history file of invoices and previous MOTs. The car's white coachwork is described by the vendor as being in good condition and is complimented by a recent hood and removable tonneau cover. The interior, in dark beige/tan, is a great combination and presents well with a wonderful patina. The engine, also described as good, benefits from the sensible upgrade of electronic ignition and the car's wiring loom has been replaced. On successful completion of the sale, a hard top and later front bumper can be collected from the vendor. This very early, right-hand drive home market SP250, presented in 'good' condition throughout, deserves to attract significant interest.
