Beschreibung

The Daimler SP250 was launched as the 'Daimler Dart' at the New York Motor Show in April 1959 (and unofficially voted as the ugliest car at the show) although preliminary details and pictures first appeared in ‘The Motor’ on 1st April 1959. Unfortunately, its baptism at the New York Show was overshadowed by the Chrysler Corporation objecting to Daimler’s use of the name ‘Dart’, as Chrysler had previously registered that name for one of its own in-house Dodge models, therefore it became known as the SP250 which was its production type number, but affectionately it has always been called ‘The Dart’.

It is acknowledged that the SP was only a partial success as only about 2,650 cars were built between the years 1959 and 1964 before production finished.

The SP250 had a Fibreglass Body mounted on a Ladder frame Chassis and had a 2547cc V8 Engine with Hemispherical Aluminium Cylinder Heads and a 5 main bearing Crankshaft and it produced 140bhp @ 5800 rpm with a Maximum Torque of 155 lbs ft. This was mated to a 4 Speed Manual Gearbox with an optional Overdrive or with an Automatic Transmission. Due to the fact that almost 50% of production would be destined for the USA and Canada, a large number of the car's features were optional extras to save on import duties into the United States.

The following items could all be ordered for the standard car:

* Wire Wheels
* Whitewall Tyres
* Adjustable Steering Column
* Hard Top
* Front and Rear Bumpers
* Windscreen Washers
* Heater
* Fog Lights
* Seat Belts
* Overdrive
* Automatic Gearbox

See the Owners Club page for more detailed information on the car: https://daimlersp250dartownersclub.com/history/

According to the Jaguar Heritage Trust production record trace certificate, this lovely 'A' Spec Daimler SP250 Dart - Chassis No: 100689 was built on 27th April 1960 and supplied by Daimler dealers Spink Motors in Bournemouth to a Mr Dennis Alsop and first registered on 2nd May 1960 with the number plate DA 12.
It is finished in its original colour of Rochester Red with a Tan Leather interior and it came with the the optional factory Hardtop in Black, Smiths heater, Wire Wheels and Overdrive Gearbox.

Mr Alsop kept the car for nearly 50 years and did have a restoration carried out on the car before selling it to Classic Automobiles in Wandsworth, London in 2009, but unfortunately little is known of the car's history during Mr Alsops ownership. His number plate was taken off in 2007 and it was re-registered with period plate 6516 EL.

The car was subsequently sold by Classic Automobiles to a Mr Aldo Salvade in Italy who had a small collection of Classic Cars and there is correspondence in the file from him regarding the car and works carried out by him whilst in his ownership. Works included an engine and gearbox rebuild along with a new clutch, water pump and numerous other parts and there are invoices for all parts in the history file. The Dart spent ten years with Mr Salvade at his home in Tuscany until he sold the car just before Christmas in 2018 to a Mr Robert Dudrenec, who owned a house in Tuscany close to Mr Salvade, and he had the car transported back to his home in Stratford Upon Avon with the intention of selling the car on and he had the car re-registered on 6516 EL in February 2019.

The car was sold in April 2019 to Evoke Classics in London and they had the car completely repainted in July 2019 before selling it to the last owner in Bristol in August 2019. Its comes with its original tonneau & hood covers which are in very good condition and the original black factory hard top was renovated and repainted to the same standard as the rest of the car. The interior is in very good condition throughout, the Chrome is excellent and it has a brand new set of Chrome Wire Wheels with the correct and period B F Goodrich tyres. The Engine and Gearbox are both excellent and it drives superbly with only around 3,000 miles covered since its overhaul. 

It comes with a very good history file containing lots of invoices, old MOT certificates and a number of old Tax Discs, it Jaguar Heritage Trust production record trace certificate, photographs of the car completely stripped for repainting in 2019, ownership history and its HPi Check Certificate.

These are 'marmite' cars with their unusual Frog-like looks, but with the excellent and very reliable 2.5 litre V8 engine they really are great fun to drive and perfect cars for touring around the UK and Europe. They are also quite rare and consequently they are very collectible and good long term investment.
