1964 Sunbeam Alpine

 

Transmission: Manual

Mileage: 09094km

Colour: Green

Welcome to the Sixties and British Sports cars, At the time the market had lots of choices like the MGB Roadster, Triumph TR4, Morgan’s and bigger cars like the Jaguar E-Type and Austin Healey 3000.

But for today we want to tell you about our Sunbeam Alpine and a bit about the Cars heritage.

 

Sunbeam Motor Car Company has some deep roots in the motor industry, stemming from 1905 in Wolverhampton in the UK by John Marston. The company has had several companies that have owned the brand but under the Rootes Brothers, the Sunbeam Alpine was built 1953 to 1955 and again from 1959 to 1968 where our Mark IV fits on the History of the company.

The Sunbeam Alpine is a two-seater sports car and this one has the option to remove the hardtop to enjoy some lovely roadster drives when the weather is fair or your dare. This car is still from a time where motoring was done by the driver, and this is 100% a driver’s car and feels sporty even with its smaller engine capacity 1750cc with twin Stromberg Carbs produces round 90 bhp. This little torquey engine then runs through a 4spd Manual Gearbox with overdrive and will happily cruise all day at about 2700rpm travelling at 120 k/hp on the open roads. The ride is amazing for a car of this age and the underpinnings comes from a Hillman Husky Van with disk brakes and independent front suspension. The rear suspension is kept in check with leaf springs.

The styling is a little different to other sports cars from the UK, where this has a little bit of an American feel and looks a bit look the Ford T-bird from the Fifties. The interior is very elegant with the black seats and green piping to match the British Racing Green paintwork. Two items worth a mention for the time is that the Sunbeam came with roll-up windows and a telescopic steering wheel.

Now that you have some facts and info on this Sunbeam let’s sum it up.

This Sunbeam was and is still a beautiful sports car, 57 after her birth. Yes, she has her blemishes but she is still reliable as the day she came out of the Factory. She looking to make someone’s heart smile for many more miles to come.

If you are in the market for a Joyfully motoring experience, we recommend that you look into giving us a call or coming to view this lovely lady.
