RetroMarques Ltd is pleased to offer for sale on behalf of the owner 1963 Daimler SP.250 ‘Dart’ (C-spec model) ‘554 RNK’...

An opportunity to purchase an SP.250 coming out of very long-term ownership, the father and son having owned the car since 1978! Looking very attractive in what most will recognise as ‘Healey Ice Blue’ this car was originally an Auto and then converted to the Manual gearbox many years ago and being a very late model SP.250 is also in the desirable C-specification.A good, driving car, with a hardtop (presently fitted) and hood, but also including a large spares package, including a complete spare engine and a 2nd spare block!


  • Daimler SP.250 Sports
  • Chassis No: 104211
  • First Reg: 25 April 1963
  • Mileage: 27,777

Specification (per factory Supplement included):

  • Cockpit Hardtop
  • Smiths Heating & Demisting Equipment
  • Cigar Lighter

Much of the history of this Daimler is known, given it comes from such long-term ownership (son, then father, then son again!). Consequently, there is knowledge of the Auto to Manual conversion (David Manners wanted an Auto box and the deal was done!), also the engine replacement (the crank broke the block away around the main bearing?) and then also the acquisition of a 2nd spare block and so on through the 40 years of ownership.

Driven locally but not extensively, this SP.250 offers an opportunity to own a nicely patinated yet still smart ‘Dart’ and importantly with seemingly very good bodywork without crazing or deterioration to the GRP. With the benefit of the C-specification improvements, this example is driving well and can be used in either hard-top or soft-top forms with a tonneau and hood bag also included. The extensive spares package is a benefit, and is of course valuable in itself, whilst also included is a box of manuals, including the factory workshop manual and owner’s handbook.

A manual SP.250 in a desirable colour scheme and a car to enjoy driving or should one wish, to use and improve.

Price: £36,950 ovno
