Catfish face: ’63 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 like today’s are the ones to get. This one had 1-owner for over 50 years. It has had a number of tasteful updates but all are reversible without harm. The seller says any issues the new owner will have to deal with are purely cosmetic. It comes with a significant amount of spare parts to keep the SP250 running for a long time. Check out the listing for details on the upgrades. Many make sense to us if you plan on using it for fun tours, events and rallies. Click here for the listing.
