1963 Daimler Dart SP250

Estimate: £28, 000-32, 000

Lovely example from long term ownership; showing a believed genuine 83, 046 miles; hard top and TR6 wheels

Dating from January 1963 this SP-250 Dart looks to have had just a few owners, with the first and second believed to be father and son with the same unusual surname - 'August', father owning it in Cheltenham for the first 12 years covering c. 30, 000 miles, followed by son taking ownership in 1974 it for some 30 years with much of his use on the continent whilst working in Paris according to copious ownership notes and copy old V5 on file. During this tenure in 1991, the car is believed to have been subject to a body-off restoration and was not on the road then for some 10 years but there is no supporting documentation bar had written notes to attest to this.

Our vendor has owned the car since March 2005 the Dart enjoying regular use with a simple log of mileages on file, with it showing the mileage at 73, 980 in March 2004 rising steadily to the last entry in August 2020 when it is recorded as 82, 969 miles, the car currently showing 83, 046 - uncommonly modest for a car some 58 years old.

The car presents well, sat on deeper dish TR6 wheels giving a more purposeful, muscular look, the bodywork finished in white with replacement black vinyl hood, blue leather interior with small rear seats and wood veneer dash. A Somewhat unusual and rather quite desirable GRP hard-top accompanies this car, purchased by our vendor shortly after he bought the car for just £200 according to yet another hand written note on file giving the car a different look altogether when fitted and no doubt greater warmth and refinement when in use than the stock vinyl number!

In addition to the detail mentioned above regarding ownership history, the file also includes the blue V5C, photos of the car following time in storage when our man took ownership with the interior looking rather cobweb bound! Along with 14 old MOTs the last expiring in April 2019 with just 1 advisory recorded for an oil leak, issued at 82, 515 miles, Daimler marque history and two files of invoices with recent spend including £64 in September 2020 on new clutch master and slave cylinders, a full service with new coil and rotor plus underside waxoyl in April 2017 costing £341 by a local garage in Malvern who look to have carried out pre-MOT checks, service and maintenance on the car for a good number of years.

Further, older bills on file indicate fitment of a new blue carpet set and other sundry items in April 2005 costing £410, new Mohair tonneau cover costing £265. 09 in May 2008, new windscreen in June 2008, with a considerable £1730 spend at Marcus Barclay Independant Jag specialist of Bucks in April 2005 on repairs to the chassis, repair to fuel tank, overhauled brake servo, fitment of a battery cut-off switch, replacement choke cable, new hard top seals, new seat belts and a 2nd hand fuel gauge at 73, 974 miles.

A lovely, and very usable Dart in good order with an interesting history and what looks to be a genuine 83, 046 miles with that rorty, punchy 250 V8 under the lightweight fibreglass body, and uncommonly 1 of 3 on offer in this sale, albeit the only one with a hard top!
