I have the luxury of 3 large barns.
I’m hoping this v8 will return to the road quickly. It’s booked in for the safety items to be overhauled. The rest will get done as and when.

YPK 440H Daimler v8 250

Hello fellow Daimler loons. I felt sorry for the above V8 which was for sale on EBay. It’s been off the road for a long time, last taxed 1981. Not particularly keen on the colour but it looks quite solid underneath and not messed about with. The V5 dates it to be Aug 1969 which must place it right a...

Re: Dart chassis 101260

Old pics sadly. They dated from the original resto. Must have been binned during the rebuild. :(
I’ll have to find a set.

Re: Dart chassis 101260

Hi Ian and others that replied, Managed to inspect the car today and can confirm that the box section bolted to the rear arch plus the horizontal member that runs parallel to the main chassis member are missing on both sides.

Dart chassis 101260

Hi dart fans. My Dart chassis number 101260 was rescued from a junk yard in Georgia in 1984 by Bill Bernick. The three pictures of pictures show the chassis and body coming apart, then the bare chassis as Bill was restoring it. The final picture is as I purchased it from Bill in 2018. The car should...
