This is from my 1962 Daimler SP-250L, which I drove to the First Woodstock, from Gales Ferry, CT, in August of 1969. I shipped that Daimler to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, in 1970, only to find that the Base Admiral, Brian McCauley, my boss (I was the Base Passenger Transportation Officer, "Barry BiPTO") also had his Daimler SP250L there; only 2500 of the cars had been manufactured from 1959 to 1962, when Jaguar bought out the company because it was competing with their XKE. The excess of the 2.5 Liter, V8, hemi-head engines were installed in the Jaguar 3.8 "Saloon" and sold as Jaguar-Daimlers. The SPL250 had a fiberglass body, had a 9 quart oil sump for a 150 cubic inche engine; there were 3 baffles in the oil sump and 5 baffles in the gas tank to prevent weight shift on cornering.
