Daimler Dart - 1945 NA => BTB 966 A => OWW 4

Guys, My Dart was originally registered "1945 NA" in the Southport, UK area. After that it became "BTB 966 A" & shortly after my mum bought it ( in 1976 ) , it was reregistered "OWW 4".

Re: 5 out of 8

Re: 5 out of 8

Hi Bud, A small but important point. According to Laurence there are now five out of every eight SP's produced has been accounted for.

Re: Engine value

Are you sure it‘s a saloon engine tjt77 ?

I see a timing tab on the front cover & a short straight oil filler. I thought these were only on a dart engine. Admittedly I see nothing else to “identify“ its origin.

Can you please let me know, what i‘ve missed.


Thanks in advance
Steve

Re: SP250 Original Pressed Wheels

I'd get the wheels coated/painted in a light Colour ( Silver/White/Cream ). This will help with seeing cracks should they appear.

That's why most chassis based racing cars have battleship Grey Chassis .


Just my 50 Cents worth, but that's what I'd do
