Beauty from West Sussex

'What a find!' says Steve Pennington after rescuing this Daimler SP250 (Dart) from 10 years of neglect. She's one of only 2640 built at Coventry between 1959 and 1964 with the original Edward Turner designed 2.5 litre V8 engine and gearbox - SP250s were the only Daimlers built with a fibreglass body

    That last sentence is not quite true: the final 3 of the the DJ254 model (Conquest New Drophead) were also built in fibreglass. It looks to me very much as if Daimler was proving the technology with development of the SP250 in mind.
