All bidding takes place on The Market (see photos for web address), plus you will find further text, over 90 photos/video fully illustrating the car and its service history, and the ability to ask questions directly to the seller. The text below is just a brief summary of our full description.

You will not be surprised to learn that the early Alpines, whilst clearly possessing drop-dead gorgeous looks, were somewhat lacking in the performance department.

Step forward then the clever people who saw a way to make sure that the Alpine was no longer all show and no go.

So, in 1983, one such person decided that the way forward was to fit a 2.8-litre V6 Cologne engine from a Ford Sierra to his Series I 1960 Alpine. Sounds easy, but of course a certain amount of reengineering was required. Thankfully we are told he was an engineer.

The arches had to be widened to accommodate the front suspension and the wider axle, hence our ‘Widebody' moniker.

Other modifications included a T9 5-speed Ford gearbox, a Ford Cortina rear axle and suspension from a Capri.

We gather this was the 4264th car to be produced and rolled down the production line in early 1960. The V5 says declared manufactured in 1962… Not true.

After the modifications were carried out, the car was reregistered as a 2.8 Sunbeam Alpine in May 1986.

Our seller purchased the car in 2018 and has spent the last three years improving the car in many ways. The work carried out included redoing the electrical system, upgrading the suspension and making a series of cosmetic upgrades to the chromework and interior.
