No relation: ’64 Daimler “Dart” SP250
The Daimler SP250 was originally the Daimler Dart before Dodge rightfully objected. They renamed it SP250. And Daimler, by the way, has nothing to do with German Daimler-Benz. To say it possesses controversial styling is an understatement. Some say it was inspired by a catfish. We’ll not comment because now that it is old and collectible, it is “distinctive”. Performance was exciting due to lightweight fiberglass construction and a perky 2.5-liter hemi V8. Disc brakes on all four wheels brought everything to a halt in an orderly manner. Early cars built before 1960 were flexible flyers so later cars are the ones to get. Today’s SP250 is offered by one of our favorite sellers. It is the receipient of a mulit-year body-off restoration and only a few thousand miles since. The Daimler is very clean with a mountain of eye-appeal. The fiberglass body is in excellent shape with consistent panel fits and gaps throughout. The interior is equally clean, the seats, carpets and interior panels showing only negligible wear.The paint is good but not flawless although nothing of a significant nature. The knock-off wire wheels are near flawless, wrapped in tires with plenty of remaining tread. The engine compartment and trunk are both clean, the car retains its original full spare wire wheel and comes with its original dual antennas, a file on its restoration, a complete shop manual and an owner’s manual.
