Thanks for stopping by to take a look at our very cool 1966 Sunbeam Alpine Series V Convertible.  Perfectly suited for your inner secret Agent 007 or even Maxwell Smart's Agent 86 with Agent 99 by your side!


Part of the British sports car invasion of the 60's and well known to collectors and vintage racers alike. the Alpine is fun to drive. inexpensive to operate and an appreciating asset in your portfolio.  


As our GI's returned from Europe. demand was high for sporting automobiles and the Sunbeam Alpines were competing against MGs. Mustang's. Triumphs. Austin Healey's and Jaguars for those sales. Dashing good looks and excellent manners made the Alpines very popular!


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 was a favorite among movie stars and racers alike.


Currently in “driver” condition. this great Alpine runs well and drives nicely.  She will need attention to the floors but upgrades can be done whilst keeping this bit of British motoring heritage alive and spreading good cheer everywhere she goes.

Comparables

There are very few comparable Alpine cars for sale at this time. There were always a few available but those days seem to have passed. Now it seems there are mostly severely needy projects. rust buckets or former donor cars as starting points. Sunbeam Tigers seem to be available in the $50. 00 to $75. 00 range and some Alpines are reaching near $30. 00 asking prices.  Given the extreme scarcity of available cars. this Alpine represents an outstanding value that can be enjoyed while being restored as well as being an appreciating investment in automotive art.


Please come inspect this great Sunbeam Alpine before the listing ends. We are happy to meet you and show her off. Please keep in mind that this is a used car.  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.



Please enjoy this walk around video tour and cold start.  



Please. no after auction games.  Please have your permissions and funds in order before bidding.
