WDB 200 was manufactured on the 5th May 1960 and was supplied new by Northampton Motors on the 10th May 1960. The Daimler is still with its original registration mark and we have an original 'buff' logbook dating back to 1969 with the car.
This Daimler Dart was supplied by us to the last owner in 2007. WDB 200 is an outstanding example that has been subject of a major 1980's restoration. The car drives superbly and is further enhanced by the recommended, expensive rack and pinion steering conversion. With other sensible upgrades such as servo assisted brakes and electrical cooling fan, the Daimler is a car that really can be used for longer distance touring with the added reliability and safety given with such upgrades. The Daimler also comes with both high quality soft top and valuable hard top. The Daimler is in similar cosmetic condition to when we last saw the car six years ago, the Beige paintwork is of a very good standard, the chrome work bright and the brown leatner upholstery in smart, nicely aged condition.
The Dart is quite simply outstanding to drives and benefits from a recent £5000 engine rebuild. The work was carried out by Jaguar specialists in 2011 and included an rebore, crankshaft re-grind, new pistons, rings, main and big end bearings. The oil pump was overhauled, as was the timing gear and other serviceable items. The cylinder heads were inspected, valve stems found to be in very good order and modified valve guides fitted. Since the engine rebuild just a few hundred miles have been completed and the engine sounds and feels outstanding. Performance is exceptional, the car is quick with powerful acceleration and the car keeps perfect temperature with excellent oil pressure. The Dart is outstanding on the road with precise steering, superb brakes and a tight gearbox with excellent synchromesh in all gears. The Dart sounds terrific and is fantastic fun to drive.
Whether the car is bought for long distance touring, good weather weekend use or showing, we are confident the car will prove a wonderful purchase.
