Description for Other Makes SP250 1963

1963 Daimler SP250. 4 speed manual. Original motor, rans, ear; the rest is mostly original. Starts easy & runs decently.

Most of you looking know the Daimler SP250 stats, istory facts, amp; usuals. This car has had much done to it as can be seen in pictures. The last owner had it for about ten years (rarely used; sitting in his Minnisota property storage garagewith his other collectibles). He lives in N.Y. full time.Thisis one of the "improved"modelsthatJaguarre-inforced (B & C series had their frames beefed up/strengthenedstarting in1960 whenJaguar bought out Daimler). Dealers & owners changed various things to their liking in the period when these were new, r fairly new (bumpers, r no bumpers; whiskers; lights, amp; so on).

It will need further tweaking due to the inoperative period in storage. All in all, artially amateur& professional restoration with a final driver friendly result.

NEW items in the period of restore/revamps: water & fuel pumps; four wheel disk brakes & new suspension parts; interior (sealer paint & insulation [shown] installed under carpet); a new top (but got ripped upon install, ow has a 6" repair patch at the bottom driver's side); paint (no fractures, racks, r peeling); tires; chromes/emblems; etcetera (to many to list). New glass. Dual exhaust extentions have been added. Also, ew NAPA 750 CCA battery just installed (7/1/15). A gas filter was added. An aftermarket shift knob is now on (not shown in the interior picture)..

MOTOR: Heads & valves were completely redone with valve seals installed-ported/polished (S250's did not originally have seals which would cause some oils smoke;the upgraded/modernized valve sealsalleviates it). The small "rubber" top hoses were nicely done away with by custom *copper soldered* pipes. Cleaner & less leaking (can easily be replaced back to original rubber hoses). A new clutch, ressure plate & throw out bearing was installed beforethe motor wasreinstalled.

The frame was in excellent condition when the previous owner took the body off. He prepped, ainted, amp; remounted the body with new required parts. The Hood closes flush (slightly open in picture).Doors/fenders, tceterahave good allignments & close as desired.

Definitely needs emergency brake parts (note emergency brake handle is not installed & I do not have it). The left rear brake is locking up. I have a replacement kit to rebuild the wheel cylinder AND am leaving the emergency brake handle/sticky brakefor the next owner to do.A Mr. John Carey supplies parts (& has the emergency brake handle/parts) & Daimler SP250 much knowledge he use to restore them); daimlerusa@yahoo.com

Car comes with a parts supply resource CD; a Daimler SP250 illustrated hardcover details & history book(1 inch thick; sells for about $70 on Ebay) & a trunk full of parts. The car is finished as in the first 8 pictures. The remaining pictures was its restore/revamp process documentation. Also has the original console ashtray in trunk.
