AS ABOVE THE PERFECT VERY RARE WINTER RESTORATION PROJECT! AN EARLY BIG FIN (1962) SUNBEAM ALPINE 1600 MANUAL 2DR LHD US IMPORT CONVERTIBLE WITH HARDTOP! JUST 2 OWNERS WITH 68193 MILES IN FACTORY WHITE. THE CAR IS IDEAL FOR RESTORATION WITH SOME WORK! SOLID 90% RUST FREE ORIGINAL CAR IDEAL FOR HISTORIC RACING/TIGER REPLICA ETC..CAR HAS RECENTLY BEEN IMPORTED FROM NEVADA WHERE IT WAS SAT FOR MANY YEARS, SUPPLIED NEW IN NEW MEXICO! PERSONALLY BY ME RECENTLY! CAR HAS BEEN UNUSED SINCE 1979! 

THE RUNNING GEAR IS ALL ORIGINAL FACTORY 1.6 WITH MANUAL GEARBOX!! THE ENGINE TURNS OVER FREELY, REST OF THE MECHANICAL CONDITION IS UNKNOWN, NO BRAKE, BUT STEERS FREELY. ITS ALL THERE TO WORK WITH! THE INTERIOR IS ALL THERE APART FROM THE GLOVEBOX AND IN GOOD AVERAGE RETRIMMED CONDITION, SEATS ARE GOOD. THE REST OF THE INTERIOR TRIM IS GOOD, NO CARPET, GLASS IS ALL GOOD TOO.. HARDTOP IS TIDY TOO APART FROM CRAZED REAR WINDOW AND LACKING PROPER SECURE CLIPS TO REAR. ORIGINAL CHROME TRIMS FITTED TO 5 ORIGINAL WHEELS. HOOD FRAME IS COMPLETE WITH THE FOLD UP STORAGE AREAS, PLUS A FEW PARTS THAT ARE REMOVED ARE INCLUDED IN THE BOOT..THE BODYWORK AS PER THE PICS IS ORIGINAL, CAR IS 90% RUST FREE, CHASSIS LOOKS GOOD,, THE OUTER SILL HAS A RUST PATCH ON ONE END WITH SOME FUNNY WELD SPOTS? BUT REST IS SOLID IN THAT AREA. ONE DOOR EDGE HAS RUST MARK TOO, THE BOOT AREA AND ENGINE BAY ARE BOTH VERY GOOD, ONE SIDE FLOOR PAN HAS BEEN REPAIRED BADLY AND THE OTHER IS HOLED (SEE PICS) THE UPPER BODY PANELS ALL LOOK MOSTLY ORIGINAL, THE BOOTLID IS DENTED TO LEADING EDGE AND THE FRONT BUMPER IS MISSING, WE ARE JUST BEING EXTRA PICKY THE CAR IS A SOLID CAR WITH THE MAKINGS OF A GREAT CAR! PAINT IS MOSTLY ORIGINAL WITH SOME PAINTED PATCHES, STILL A GREAT RARE BASE TO RESTORE. 

I CANNOT STRESS WHAT AN AMAZING CAR THIS WOULD BE FOR ANY SUNBEAM FAN OR COLLECTOR AND YOU WOULD HAVE A GREAT INVESTMENT WITH A GOOD RESTORATION! THESE WILL ONLY INCREASE IN PRICE! TIGERS ARE FETCHING SILLY MONEY SO THIS IS THE NEXT BEST THING! THERE ARE NOT MANY EARLY ONES AROUND IN COMPLETE CONDITION TO RESTORE OR TO RACE..I HAVE NO KEYS SADLY, BUT A CLEAN TITLE DOC AND NOVA PAPERWORK TO REGISTER! CAR IS TAXES PAID AND READY TO REGISTER. CAR HAS 68193 MILES AND IS MOST LIKELY CORRECT, CAR IS TAX AND MOT EXEMPT TO JUST £55 TO REGISTER!
