The Sunbeam Alpine was the first Sunbeam model from the Rootes Group after Sunbeam bought Clément-Talbot in 1935. The first generation Alpine was produced between 1953 and 1955 and the all-new Alpine Series I was introduced in 1959. The four-cylinder petrol engined Alpine also included modern equipment in British sports car at that time, such as wind-up side windows and coil springs and disc brakes in front.
The ‘1963 Sunbeam Alpine in question is one of the Series II generation, and equipped with a more powerful 80-horsepower 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine. The car was brought to Finland from the United States in 1992. The body of the car, which is in excellent original condition, was repainted in Sunbeam’s Holly Green color in the 2010s. The interior was also reupholstered in brown tones. The Alpine has the original Rootes Group steering wheel and Smith and Jaeger gauges. The car has a black vinyl roof in good condition.
Alpine was serviced in the spring of 2023, when the engine oils and filter were changed and the timing and carburetors were adjusted. The car’s engine runs great and transmission work precisely.
The car is registered as a museum vehicle and inspected 06/2020. The inspection is valid until July 2024.
