1962 Daimler SP250 Dart
A FULL SUB-FRAMED & RACE READY AC COBRA ALTERNATIVE
NO RESERVE SALE !!
. Fun to drive on street. race track or strip ready! A real unique performance built car & head turner you can hear coming your way.
RACE READY: This is a vintage FRAME OFF Rebuild as a true Street & Track Racer. an AC Cobra alternative. This light 2. 00 lb. fiberglass car has gone from the small factory rated 140HP V8 to a newer built vintage HP Chevy 307 Racing Small Block V8 engine (stroked Chevy 283 race block with 327 crank. nbsp; forged pistons & aluminum heads) aluminum free flow heads. air-gap torker aluminum manifold. Demon carburation & direct side pipe racing style exhaust… now producing close to 400HP! ALL STREET LEGAL & fun to drive! The HP V-8 is backed by a new 5-speed (4-speed+overdrive gear) stick. manual transmission coupled to a newly done Austin Healey Racing 4:11 differential; rear end. It now has a fully built square tube & rigid X-pattern full sub-frame assembly. racing springs & full disc brakes. Slotted aluminum racing style knock-off wheels and new high performance radial tires. 70 series 14" front and 15" rear. Racing seats. racing harness belts & dual roll bars make this Daimler ready to go on the street or track. Underneath is all new. Professionally built by a noted race shop with square tube X-Type sub-frame. all new springs. stiffened racing suspension. braking & exhaust systems… no expense was spared on the build of this rare breed of car. Only 1. 00 of these LHD models were imported to the USA market as they were very expensive in their day. Many of these were lost over the years or returned back to the European market due to their popularity. It is estimated that less than a hundred or so now remain as drivers in the USA. There are no other Daimler SP-250's built like this one… this is not a kit car or AC Cobra clone… this is the real thing! A street legal driver that is race ready to take on anything and everything. This is a very rare breed & investment grade vehicle that turns heads wherever it goes.
The car only has 282 miles since full rebuild completed about 2002. The original body documentation shows that car had 64. 00 actual miles when it was redone. The owner that had this done professionally and spent tons of money at a race prep shop to do this right! You cannot buy a fixer car and replicate this thype of work for such a low price as now offered. Unfortunately he passed right at time of completion of his dream car. The car then sat for years before being transferred. sold by a nephew who did not know much about this car. This has got to be one of the quickest. and most fun street machines I have ever driven. It is well balanced. tight and handles amazingly. It was built with professionally mounted frame integrated dual roll bars. It has racing harness belts to hold you in secure. The car still has the old original soft top which is rarely used. With the new sub frame & pro-build. this car is solid in and out. The doors do not sag. close with a solid click to fit flush & tight when fully closed. The trunk holds a large lightweight 10+ gallon center mounted racing style fuel cell leaving tons of storage space for those fun weekend drives. I have driven this car at full freeway speeds. and out of area car shows. All wiring & gauges new. lights work well. you can see everything is fresh and new under this car. It runs smooth and strong all day long. Some of the photos with top up are from a day out with a magazine photographer. professional model & car shoot that used this rare car as the feature car. I have a few framed & signed photos from that featured shoot. This rare built street car. if desired. could easily burn rubber through all the gears and handles tight and stiff through any turns. I was told that car was clocked and estimated after first build as an 11 second street machine. but actually pro-built for handling & the track. What is nice is that it can also be a very tame weekend cruiser. it idles and cruises around town very nicely. The 4:11 gearing can get it going quick. yet with the overdrive this car runs smooth drives the streets and highways at full speeds & lower RPM cruising. it stays cool and smooth all day long. Probably the quickest. and most fun. yet street legal car I have ever driven around town! It turns heads and gets a "cool car" wherever it goes!
