The Dart laid claim to being Australia's first sports car. Time has now transformed the Dart to a cult car and a collectors' item, particularly as very few of the 700 vehicles produced are still in existence.

The featured example was auctioned at the annual Shannons Sydney Summer Auction in February 2004. As with all Darts, the excellent yellow example being auctioned by Shannons is powered by a twin-cylinder, 269 CC engine developing 15HP at 5,000rpm, giving it adequate performance to propel it.
