When it left the factory it was the Daimler Dart, aka SP250, AKA V-8 and was one of the oddest British sports cars of the 60’s. You’ve got to love a car with that many names.
What makes this car special for me is that I nearly bought one back in the late 70’s for $500. It ran fine and the fiberglass body was in great shape but the convertible top was trashed and I was afraid that I wouldn’t be able to find and/or afford a new top. Instead I bought a 69 Dodge Polara for $100.
Ever since then I cringe whenever I see one of these for sale, though they are usually going for way more than $500 and need way more work then just a new top.
This particular example’s current bid is nearly 20 times what I almost paid, but seems to be in fine shape. It does not need a new top.
