Classic Car Overview

FORMERLY PART OF A LONG-TERM COLLECTIONFINISHED IN BLACK OVER NEWER BLACK UPHOLSTERYDESIRABLE, LATE-PRODUCTION SERIES V ALPINE IMPROVED 1,725 CC ENGINE WITH 4-SPEED TRANSMISSIONINTERESTING ALTERNATIVE TO THE TR3 AND MGA EXAMPLE OF THE CAR MADE FAMOUS BY TVS GET SMART Reprising the nameplate worn by the Sunbeam Alpine, which won the prestigious Monte Carlo Rally in 1955, Britains Rootes Group returned to sporting cars with a new-generation Alpine sports-tourer introduced in October 1959. Featuring a svelte, uncluttered body designed by Ken Howes, the Alpine bore a strong visual similarity to the first-generation Thunderbird. Built with modern unibody construction, Alpines were thoughtfully equipped with roll-up windows and a proper heater, unlike the spartan MGA and Triumph TR3. Initially powered by a 1.5-liter engine, the Alpine was value-priced at launch under 1,000. Intended as a sporty touring car without racing pretensions, Sunbeam did field a Works Alpine with a special fastback roof at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which finished second in class and won the Index of Thermal Efficiency in 1961. The Alpine proved quite popular in the United States, where it enjoyed high-profile use in the 1960s TV series, Get Smart. Five distinct Alpine series were produced, with U.S. imports ending with the 1966-68 Series V models featuring a stronger and smoother 1,725 cc engine delivering 92 horsepower. While some 19,000 Series V Alpines were produced, relatively few survive today, including this example. Following some years spent in Pensacola, Florida, this 1967 Sunbeam Series V Alpine was part of a large private collection for the past 20 years under the care of a local Chicago-area owner/collector, then purchased from his estate and freshened. Finished in Black paint with twin Shelby-style racing stripes, it includes a convertible top in fair condition, newer black seat covers, and both a Moto-Lita steering wheel and floor shifter featuring the unique Sunbeam/Rootes crest. Powered by the improved 1,725 cc inline four-cylinder engine with a four-speed manual transmission, this Alpine V has received recent attention including installation of a new dash pad, a new ammeter, tachometer repairs, rebuilding of the differential, fitting of new axle and door seals, and a set of brand new tires on powder-coated wheels. If youve been searching for a classic sports car that you can drive and enjoy as desired, this 1967 Sunbeam Alpine Series V Convertible marks a desirable and fun choice!
