1959 SUNBEAM ALPINE 1959 Sunbeam Alpine Series 1 for sale

Price: $39,000
Now for sale is this 1959 Sunbeam Alpine Series 1. The car was restored approximately five years ago which consisted off a full respray and a full re trim. At this time all the bright work and bumpers were restored too. The two litre four cylinder engine is matched with a four speed manual transmission with over drive that runs nicely. A brand-new soft was fitted and included is a brand-new tonneau cover and the original hard top. This beautiful British sports car is ready to be enjoyed with the top down and is available by inspection at our Kogarah facility.
The Sunbeam Alpine is a two-seater sports roadster/drophead coupé that was produced by the Rootes Group from 1953 to 1955, and then 1959 to 1968. The name was then used on a two-door fastback coupé from 1969 to 1975. The original Alpine was launched in 1953 as the first vehicle from Sunbeam-Talbot to bear the Sunbeam name alone since Rootes Group bought Clément-Talbot, and later the moribund Sunbeam from its receiver in 1935. The Sunbeam Tiger is a high-performance V8 version of the British Rootes Group's Sunbeam Alpine roadster, designed in part by American car designer and racing driver Carroll Shelby and produced from 1964 until 1967. Shelby had carried out a similar V8 conversion on the AC Cobra, and hoped to be offered the contract to produce the Tiger at his facility in the United States. Two major versions of the Tiger were built: the Mark I (19641967) was fitted with the 260 cu in (4.3 L) Ford V8; the Mark II, of which only 633 were built in the final year of Tiger production, was fitted with the larger displacement Ford 289 cu in (4.7 L) engine. Two prototype and extensively modified versions of the Mark I competed in the 1964 24 Hours of Le Mans, but neither completed the race. Rootes also entered the Tiger in European rallies with some success, and for two years it was the American Hot Rod Association's national record holder over a quarter-mile drag strip.
