1960 Sunbeam Alpine
If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
The first popularly priced British sports car with wind up windows, very luxurious for a 1960 (MGs, Triumph, and Healeys of the day used side curtains), sports car. And the top not only folds down BUT disappears under a real clamshell panel (VERY elegant for its day). And in 1960, 100 mph performance and disc brakes were more or less `state of the art` and what the car offers is a slick, stylish, classic sports car that would be fun to use as a concours car.....not an enormous chance of seeing another one which makes taking to shows even more fun. I mean, think of the disappointment of taking your restored Porsche 356, Alfa, TR4, MGB, MG TD or TF, even Jaguar E TYpe to a show and being parked next to eleven other identical examples
AND there is sufficient room behind the seats, move the fronts forward, add two pairs of seat belts, and one can make this into a 2+2 for two small kids. Or maybe just a big dog.
It is in beautiful condition, clearly hundreds of hours of work went into the prep work, and with contemporary performance, one can even enjoy the proverbial back roads for pleasurable driving.
(and by the way, hadn`t driven a Sunbeam in decades, went for a drive, INCREDIBLE....lively engine and I suspect this engine puts out tons more power than stock....excellent ride, shifting, and overall driving. Far better than a Healey, MG, Triumph, or most any other period British sports car)
