Condition: Seller notes:
Used
“Unbelievably nicely presented Daimler SP250 Dart extremely solid car with no frame rust or prior damage ever nicely repainted on original colors. Mini-light wheels with Daimler decals. This Daimler Car Company was owned by Jaguar at the time which ceased production of the SP250 due to the completion with their E-Type at that time. The attention to detail was extremely attentive. This is one of 2654 cars ever built extremely rare and collectible car. Compared to an e-type which had a production run of 72,507 cars. The attention to detail is astonishing down to polished cam cover and carburetors. Numbers matching car. Very nice Old English white with red interior. Compare to others on the market they range from $70,000 to $20,000 for junk which would cost more to restore than this car is to purchase.”

Vehicle description

The Daimler SP250 Dart has a factory fiberglass body, four-wheel Girling disc brakes, and a 2.5-liter Hemi-head V8 engine designed by Edward Turner . The car is a 2+2, but the bench-like rear seat offered very limited leg-room unless the front seats were pushed fully forward. Engine: V 8 iron block, water cooled, OHV, bore 76 mm x stroke 70 mm, capacity 2547 cc. Single central camshaft operated valves through short push-rods with double heavy-duty valve springs. Aluminium alloy hemispherical cylinder heads. Stiff five (5) main bearing crankshaft, dynamically balanced. Compression ratio 8.2:1. Twin SU carburetor s break horse power (BHP) 140 @ 5800 rpm. Max Torque 155 lb⋅ft (210 N⋅m) at 3600 rpm. SU electric fuel pump. Ignition: Coil and distributor with conventional automatic advance & retard. Lubrication: Submerged gear oil pump with full flow filter. Sump capacity 1.75 US gallons. Cooling: Pressurized radiator with fan, pump and thermostat control. Transmission: 4 speeds with synchromesh on top three ratios. Provision for overdrive . Rear Axle: Hypoid bevel 3.58:1 Steering: Cam & follower. Suspension: Front independent with coil springs. Rear live axle with half-elliptic leaf springs. Oversize dampers. Brakes: Girling Discs on all four wheels, hydraulic operation. Only 2,654 SP250s were produced in five years of production, far short of the projection of 3,000 per year by the second year of production. This is an once in a lifetime opportunity to own and drive one of the most desirable, fastest appreciating, rarest, most beautiful, British sports cars ever made. We took this car and several very nice old jaguars including the last XK120 ever made to the local (JCNA) Jaguar Clubs of North America event held on prestigious Saint Armands circle and this car garnered more interest than any XK 120-150 and all the XKE"s some of which had JCNA senior 99+point honors and all the newest fanciest Jaguars including competitions cars which were there.
