Technical specifications, photos and description:
Up for auction is my 1963 Sunbeam Alpine Roadster. This vehicle is in much better shape than any similarly priced Alpines I've seen on ebay in the last several years in terms of condition. quality. appearance and function! Don't waste your time and money buying an Alpine for around 8-10. 00 that will require 10. 00 more in improvements to get a product that will not be as nice as this one!
Incredibly clean 2 stage base and clear coat paint (blocked and buffed to a smooth high shine finish)
Beautifully hand-crafted. machine stitched and bolstered interior (double stitch accents throughout all panels and interior)
California car and absolutely incredible condition in terms of factory welds. panels. floors etc
Upgraded and rebuilt drivetrain
-Fresh professionally fully rebuilt transmission with fully synchronized gears for effortless up and downshifts in all gears.
-Ignition. plugs. everything electrical has been replaced with new top quality upgrades (with the exception of the solenoid which is original and has always operated perfectly).
-Fully rebuilt carbs and distributor. timing and tuning freshly set. electric fuel pump. fresh lube and fluids everywhere.
Most of the chrome is recent (front and rear bumpers. all of grille. fuel surround. headlight surrounds. hubs)
-(still needs windshield surround and trunk lid hinges re-chromed to be perfect. but fine for now)
New upgraded wiring harness. everything on its own circuit or relay (100% new heat shrunk connections everywhere)
- Heated seats (fully adjustable 5 position switches) (easily removable if not in the taste of new owner)
- Electric fuel pump
- Most wires hidden (and very nice heat resistant auto wiring loom where wires run to devices)
(All unused wires of new harness left intact incase future owner upgrades to electric gauges. fans. alternator. etc for newer or larger engine)
Fresh brakes. suspension. nbsp;stainless muffler. very healthy tread on tires
Brand new Gold Series Battery
New Grommets. seals. etc nearly everywhere
Tons more upgrades and rebuilt systems.
Perfect floor boards with factory welds noted prior to painstakingly installed sound deadener under fresh carpet
Great attention to detail and obviously not built to sell.
My remaining upgrades would be sway bar bushings and throw out bearing bushing bushing (less than $50 for the best parts available). restoring horn and column sleeve (cosmetic only). and eventually re-chroming windshield frame. These improvements are inexpensive and aren't imperative in order for the car to be driven and enjoyed for years and years. but I have very high standards and consider them worth mentioning.
Great candidate for a 5. 0L or a V6 to make a Tiger Killer. Or. very fun to drive now with no problems of any kind. I bought the car with plans to rebuild. and very quickly decided everything was way too great of condition. fun. and reliable to consider doing anything except enjoying it!
The imperfections I'm aware of in the exterior paint include a few chips the size of a single rice grain in very hard to detect areas (door edge. inside door). Welcome to message me for more pics!
The gentlemen I bought the car from said that he purchased it from the second owner and was told that this particular Sunbeam was in a “Grey Goose” commercial. Based on its stunning restoration. I believe it!
Please contact me for any further questions or requests. Thank you!
