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.
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 has not been cut up. abused or raced. She will need attention to the floors soon but upgrades can be done while keeping this bit of British motoring heritage alive and on the road.

There are very few comparable Alpine cars for sale at this time. Sunbeam Tigers seem to be available in the $50. 00 to $75. 00 range. We sell “done” Alpines for high teens to low twenties. 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.
