Cars for sale
From time to time, customers ask me to use my website to try and sell cars for them. I am happy to do this on a commission basis and on the understanding that I do not guarantee the cars.
1964 SP250 C spec - SOLD
This car has had the same owner for the last 47 years and has a recorded mileage of 22,000 which I have no reason to dispute although it cannot be guaranteed. It was first registered in March 1964 and came from the Daimler factory in Mountain Blue with Grey leather which it has retained throughout its life.
This car is very original still having the Ace wheel trims that were fitted in the factory. Modifications have been restricted to a diaphragm clutch, stainless steel exhaust and an electric fan. It has the correct C spec additions of a trickle charger point, cigar lighter and fuel reserve switch plus a recent major overhaul of the suspension, brakes, steering, fuel and cooling systems. The tyres and battery have recently been replaced and it will be sold with a new MOT.
The panel gaps are excellent and there are no indications of accident damage. The car has been resprayed in the past and the paintwork is is now rather dull however a new owner would have the option of using the car as it is or refurbishing it at a convenient time in the future.
If you crave originality this SP250 could be for you. It drives beautifully and gives you the impression that you could whizz straight to Monte Carlo without a second thought!
1963 SP250 C spec - £18,000
This is a very complete, late model Dart that was originally produced in Mountain Blue with grey leather upholstery. It was owned from new by a lady in Exeter who passed it on to her son who sold it to the present owner. The engine started and ran with good oil pressure although the car is not driveable as the brake hydraulics have been disconnected.
The car has rack and pinion steering, electric fan, oil cooler and a brake servo. The chrome parts are solid but will need re-plating however the car will require a body-off restoration in order to attend to the rear chassis rails which are corroded and the rear cross bars which are bent and should be boxed to provide additional torsional rigidity. The trim and weather equipment are toast and need replacing and of course a respray will be necessary. The important thing is that it's all there and the car will make a fabulous restoration project.
About the only part that I can see to be missing is the ashtray and I can probably source one of these for a prospective buyer!
This is a seriously good opportunity to build a superb or even concours Daimler SP250. Please call me for further information.
