Thanks for stopping by to take a look at our very cool 1961 Sunbeam Alpine Series II. This is the one to own with the big fins, hideaway soft top, hard top and solid, original, floors. Sunbeams have a loyal following and parts are readily available.
The Alpine became famous in many films of the 60’s and was driven by legendary performers like Cary Grant, Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Caine and Tuesday Weld. From James Bond films to the Get Smart Television series, the Sunbeam Alpine played a long running series of co-starring roles.
Produced in limited quantities from 1959 to 1968 The Sunbeam Alpine is a rare sight to see outside of a British car meet. This is a Series II car that was originally delivered with the 1592 cc engine. At some point in the car's history it was upgraded to a 1725cc Series V engine.
Check these custom highlights:
Hard top (minor plex crack, see photos
Nice white paint, color sanded and polished.
Running bumperless for a sleek look
Custom painted mag wheels
Fresh upholstery with Logoed seat backs
Nice door panels.
Wood shift knob
Soft top frame is present but needs new cover
Soft top storage inside the painted hard cover is much more attractive than later models with vinyl covers.
Custom wheels with new 60 series tires
1725 cc 4 cylinder
Dual stromberg carbs rebuilt.
Plumbed Oil cooler
Cherry bomb muffler
Fresh oil and filters.
The trim is in good to excellent shape.
The glass is in good to excellent condition.
New fresh wiper blades
The odometer shows 75,360 miles.
Fewer and fewer Sunbeam Alpines are on the market these days. This is not a concours or show car. It’s a fun little hotrod that can be enjoyed as is.
Please come inspect this great Sunbeam before the listing ends. We are happy to meet you and show her off. The details contained in this listing are based on our review of the vehicle and any errors or omissions are unintentional. Please keep in mind that this is a 57 year old used car. It will need periodic attention just as any classic automobile does. It is not a new car and will not be fresh and perfect like that new soul sucking Camry your Aunt Betty drives. If that’s what you are after, this is not your era, nor your car so please move on to something new. Like a Prius.
