1959 Beautiful Daimler Dart SP250 For Sale

Summary Looking fantastic with a recent body repaint and service this car is ready to enjoy. This really is a special car that has been in long term ownership with only one previous owner listed on the log book, it comes complete with heritage certificate, workshop manual, original owner's handbook, and a history file of invoices and previous MOTs. History 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 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. With only 2645 produced this is a great opportunity to own such an iconic car. Interior. Supplied from the factory with tan leather and biscuit carpets that really compliment the Ivory paintwork and brown roof. All the leather is in great condition with no rips or tears, the switches and dials are all in working order. A truly lovely place to be. Exterior The Ivory Paintwork looks stunning, just recently benefitted from a £5000 repaint that was taken back to the gel coat, the brown convertible roof looks brand new and sets off the Ivory paintwork wonderfully. It also comes with a tonneau cover that looks fantastic in Cream. All the brightwork is stunning, the car is simply one of the best looking examples you will find. Engine, transmission and chassis The engine is heart and soul of the Daimler Dart, the Edward Turner designed 2.5 litre v8 Hemi powering the lightweight chassis you will be blown away with its performance. This particular engine is in fine fettle and fires first time and settles to a smooth idle. When you blip the throttle that V8 just comes alive! On the road, the car drives very well with that evocative V8 sound. With a recent service including a new dynamo and fuel pump you will be sure to have many miles of enjoyment, it has even had its wiring loom replaced in recent years. Wheels, tyres and brakes. Some prefer the look of wire wheels on these early cars but in keeping with its originality and history we have kept the original wheels as they are in great condition, the tyres are all in good shape and the chassis and brakes all operate as you would expect. Additional information. Like we mentioned with our previous Daimler Dart sale, The rarity and desire of the Dart’s have, in recent years caused a small explosion in prices. We are noting some well in excess of £50,000. We think that price spike is over hyped. We also think it is a get rich quick investors pushing those prices up, not real owners of real cars. We don’t believe pushing cars beyond the value of real enthusiasts like you and us is right or proper. On that basis, we have priced this lovely Dart at what we think is a realistic price based on the time and resources we have spent to bring it back to a very nice condition. Is it concours? We’re not even sure what that means! Is it capable of winning some trophies, very probably. On that basis we’ve price the car at £29,995. Thank you for looking. We’d be very happy to supply any more information anyone would like or answer any questions. Just let us know.
