Sunbeam announced its Alpine sports model in 1959. The new car was a change of direction for the firm and was aimed squarely at the younger MG or Triumph TR buyer. The first series was powered by a 78bhp 1,494cc four-cylinder engine, enlarged to the 80bhp 1,592cc unit in the 1962 Series II. In 1963 the Series III arrived with larger front brake discs, a bigger boot and a revised interior. For the Series IV new rear styling was introduced with the fins largely removed. Automatic transmission with floor-mounted control became an option. From autumn 1964 a new manual gearbox with synchromesh on first gear was available. A total of about 70,000 cars were made.





This example is presented in Metallic Blue with a Black interior, and has been owned by a mechanic for the last twelve years. It has been fitted with stainless steel bumpers and exhaust for easy maintenance. It has recently had a new electronic distributor and coil set fitted, for excellent starting and running. It also has a new updated alternator ACR 18, and a new brake servo. The engine has good oil pressure, and the overdrive is in working order.



The vendor states that the brakes could do with bleeding for a perfect pedal, and the hardtop pillar bottoms are corroded (as per the photos) but repair kits are available. Also, the car would benefit from replacement carpets.
