Auc­tions: Sun­beam charm for un­der £14k at His­torics’ next sale

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Buying & Selling -

Very much a ri­val to the MGB, the Sun­beam Alpine had a more cos­mopoli­tan air, with ear­lier mod­els fea­tur­ing tail fins (pared down on the later mod­els) but with a lusty per­for­mance to back its sport­ing looks. This car has been kept in a heated, de-hu­mid­i­fied garage and its his­tory dates back to 1993. The re­cent Pas­tel Blue re-paint (and white hard­top) gives it a smart air while the en­gine is fit­ted with a twin-chock We­ber. More sparkling perry and pasta carbonara than the warm bit­ter and cheese sand­wiches of an MGB, it’s an­other tempter from the Rootes Group.
