I think Robert Grinter used to get them cast. There was a slight issue with getting a small batch cast which has prevented them from being cast in recent times.
It might be worth asking if he has any plans to get a batch done.
Thanks Marcel

Re: Barn Find video with SP250's

The owner wrote me:

For your interest in the Daimler SP250, the two complete cars and the one "parts" car with the heads, transmission, and oil pan, we are asking $40K, but will consider offers.

Re: Possible scam sale

Hello All

I think that car sold on ebay 5 years ago for 28K then who ever bought it took it to an auction in Florida and it sold for 38. I bid on it in both auctions. I think this because of the color and bumper parts as whiskers. The palm trees in Ohio are a nice touch though.
