1962 Sunbeam Alpine

Engine: 4 cylinder 1600cc   

Gearbox: Manual 4 Speed o/d

The fact most people seem to be able to remember about the Sunbeam Alpine was that James Bond drove one in Dr No- making it the first real Bond car. (Step aside Aston Martin!) While Sunbeam as a marque unfortunately has not survived to present day this particular car has. Originally shipped to the US when new this example found its way back home in early 2000 and was lovingly restored by its last owner as a retirement project from 2006 till completion in 2011.  It has been a regular at local classic car shows and meetings since then. Unfortunately poor health has made driving the car difficult and the decision has been made to pass the car to a new owner to enjoy. A nice personal touch, during the rebuild an American cent coin was found underneath one of the seats- this coin can now be found set into the gearstick. The vehicle remains in excellent condition throughout, during the restoration a series 5 gearbox was fitted with over drive on 3rd and 4th gears to make for more relaxed cruising (A very common and worthwhile modification). The vehicle has every invoice for every part purchased during the restoration alone with plenty of other interesting bit and bobs (Including a magazine feature). The car has an MOT till next august for peace of mind.
