Appearing on Car SOS tonight on Freeview 14 at 1855 tonight, not my regular viewing but I have always had a soft spot for these little V8 machines.

Quite expensive : - dart for sale

I believe the police used them as unmarked cars in the late 60's together with Sunbeam Tigers with optional 4.7 engine, if I got my facts right.

In the early 70's I had work colleagues with both although only the cooking 4.2 Tiger. Golden days innocent

I recall seeing in the press a police liveried Dart - I hadn't realised they used Tigers as well, lucky boys.

Our part of the world used MGA'S. WE obviously drive slower around here.

Spot on the boys in blue used the SP250 and the Tiger. Got a couple of friends with them . What puts me off the tiger is the steering column and no seat belt in a head on smash its like a spear in the chest if not sorted out and revamped . ooo

Good luck for tomorrow and I hope the weather forecast is wrong for your area thumbs.

Thanks for the heads up. My first V8 encounter. I shared accommodation in Golders Green in the 70's with a guy called Robert Stirling Moser, from the USA. He was a specialist Dart engine expert and worked in a garage in the area. Interesting that the engines already needed rebuilding in the early 70's. He was going off to Switzerland and Germany often to perform major surgery on these cars. I believe later he then raced his own SP250'S in the US.
