Rare 1963 Daimler SP250 (Dart) with numbers matching 2.5L V8 engine C-spec model with lots of upgrades. 1-owner car for over 50 years with a frame up restoration done in 1997. This car is qualified for the pre-1960 vintage racing class by the SCCA and gets 26 MPG!! My father recently purchased it from the original owner and soon after incurred some health issues that kept him from completing & enjoying his 2nd SP250 so we'd like to see it go to a new home where it can be enjoyed, cared for, & shown off :)

Jay Leno is restoring a SP 250 this year. You can see his project at the jaylenosgarage website.

Many improvements to the car including: 2-circuit brake system, Upgraded 5-Speed Transmission, Rack & Pinion Steering, Front/Rear Sway Bars, Convertible Soft Top and Hard Top w/ Sun Roof, Stainless Steel Exhaust Headers, 1 ¾" SS Mufflers & Pipes to Rear, Analog Air Fuel Ratio Gauge with Oxygen Sensor in exhaust system, Alternator Conversion, Spin On Oil Filter Adapter, Optical Trigger Ignition, Five Core Aluminum Radiator, Dual Radiator Fans with Thermostat On/Off, GM Spade Fuse Blocks, MP3 DVD USB Stereo/Radio, 5 ½" TR 4 Wheels With 185/65 15" Tires, Intermittent Wiper Switch, Stainless Steel Brake Lines, Front Oil Seal instead of baffle, Oil Pan Baffle, Stainless Steel Valves, allow unleaded gas to be used; also installed are modern reclining seats, with lap/shoulder seat belts for driver and passenger. Original seats come with car.

TONS of spare parts and fittings from the factory to the present as well as thousands 
of pages of manuals; documentation & service records. The engine in the car has just shy of 22K miles and 727 running hours on the clock and is in excellent condition.

Other parts that go with the car: (MESSAGE ME FOR A PHOTO CATALOG OF ALL THE PARTS)

This car and parts assemblage will keep this car running indefinitely. It needs some minor cosmetic work, (paint & interior) to be restored to mint original condition but it operates like it's a almost brand new and body is in great shape. There's an excellent mechanic here in Santa Monica who knows the Daimler Dart very well and can help you with whatever you'd like to do it. 

All original parts come with the car. All modifications are reversible and the car can be returned
to original condition if desired. Although, I'd really keep the two circuit brake system and there 
is no reason to go back to worm and peg steering.

Relatively minor cosmetic/interior work that needs to be done should easily get you to the high NADA estimate for this very rare collector car. Wish we could do it ourselves. Could easily be worth high $60k with the right new home.

Also currently restoring a custom 1972 SS El Camino with numbers matching rebuilt 350ci motor (big cam, intake, headers, double-pumper, HEI ignition, etc.) and 350TH transmission with 3-speed ratchet shifter. 

Feel free to message me with any questions. Thanks, drive safely & have an excellent day!
