The Daimler Dart was built in
Coventry and launched at the 1959 New York Motor Show achieving
great success in the North American market. Built with a fibreglass
body. Girling disc brakes all round and a 2. 5 litre Hemi-head V8
engine designed by Edward Turner. the car was described as a 2+2
but the bench-like rear seat offered very limited leg room unless
the front seats were pushed fully forward. Thirty black Daimler
Darts with the Borg-Warner Model 8. 3-speed automatic were used by
the British Metropolitan Police. Daimler were soon forced to drop
the Dart name when threatened with legal action by Chrysler's Dodge
division. the car was then re-named the Daimler SP250.

Tyler Industrial Mouldings produced the 'BRA 289' kit and
launched its Daimler Dart replica onto the kit car market at
Stoneleigh. As close to the original car as you are ever going to
get. Tyler had been manufacturing replacement parts for original
Daimlers for many years and the plan was to make the most of spare
manufacturing capacity at the Tyler Industrial Mouldings Medway
boat-building factory. Having been selling individual panels for
SP250's they produced a full bodyshell using modern GRP technology
while using modern donor engines and running gear. The plan was to
produce 20 in the first year; however. the company only ever
produced one example.

Built by William Tyler & Co. in 1997 and supplied complete
with the Rover 3. 5 V8 engine. this Dart replica is truly a one off
and has the documentation to prove it. Finished in burgundy with
black leather. this fine example starts on the button and runs. we
are told. as if it were new. Supplied with the car is a
comprehensive history file including original build receipts and
correspondence. newspaper/magazine clippings of the build along
with past MoT test certificates and service receipts. Given the
running gear and the ample detail supplied with the car. replacing
and maintaining this vehicle should be a straightforward process.
This tax exempt vehicle comes supplied with a tonneau cover. has 11
months remaining on the MoT test certificate and offers a chance to
own and enjoy a unique piece of motoring history.
