Description

1966 Sunbeam Alpine

The vendor has kindly supplied the following:

Bought 2011 locally (NI) in 2011. Carried our renovation/restoration work including respraying in red (original colour blue), rechroming, fitting new hood, reupholstering front seats and door panels and fitting wire wheels with white-wall tyres. Mechanically the car was in good condition and came with a lot of spare parts (spare below). It has been MOT'd annually ip to 2019 and never failed. Electronic ignition fitted in 2017 which greatly improved performance, especially 'warm-up' time. Rarely used in wet conditions. 

An attractive car, but experts will notice that the air vents at the rear of the bonnet have been sealed off. To me, these were a source of water ingress (rust) and unnecessary in a drophead used only in Summer, as was the heater.

Comes with the following extras:

  • White hardtop
  • Front wing (surface rusted but reasonably sound)
  • Tonneau cover
  • Assortment of tail light clusters
  • Assortment of SU carbs and manifolds
  • New alternator and clutch
  • Side window glass and light
  • Tray for transmission tunnel with radio (don't know if working)
