Thanks for stopping by to take a look at our very cool 1966 Sunbeam Alpine Series V Convertible. Perfectly suited for your inner Agent 007 or 86!
Part of the British sports car invasion of the 60’s and well known to collectors and vintage racers alike, the Alpine is fun to drive, inexpensive to operate and an appreciating asset in your portfolio.
As our GI’s returned from Europe, demand was high for sporting automobiles and the Sunbeam Alpines were competing against MGs, Mustang’s, Triumphs, Austin Healey’s and Jaguars for those sales.
The Alpine became famous in many films of the 60’s and was driven by legendary performers like Cary Grant, Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Caine and Tuesday Weld. From James Bond films to the Get Smart Television series, the Sunbeam Alpine was a favorite among movie stars and racers alike.
Currently in “driver” condition, this great Alpine runs well and drives nicely. She will need attention to the floors soon but upgrades can be done while keeping this bit of British motoring heritage alive and on the road.
Produced in limited quantities from 1959 to 1968 The Sunbeam Alpine is a rare sight to see outside of a British car meet. This is the Series 5 car with the larger 1725 engine and synchromesh transmission.
Driver quality Carnival Red paint has been maintained and shines up well. The black convertible top is newer and the rear window is clear.
Alloy wheels and good tyres are in place.
1725 cc high revving British hotrod. She sports an upgraded Weber carburetor, a big improvement over standard. Freshly serviced radiator, new water pump, belts and hoses. Valve adjust. Runs excellent.

Fresh service and ready to go! Coolant, oil, filters, hoses and belts, plus plugs, points and condensor are all new.

There are very few comparable Alpine cars for sale at this time. Sunbeam Tigers seem to be available in the $50,000 to $75,000 range. We sell “done” Alpines for high teens to low twenties. Given the scarcity of available cars, this Alpine appears to represent an outstanding value that can be enjoyed while being restored.
Please come inspect this great Sunbeam Alpine before the listing ends. We are happy to meet you and show her off. Please keep in mind that this is a used car that has needs. It is not a new car and will not be fresh and perfect like that new soul sucking Camry your Aunt Betty drives. If that’s what you are after, this is not your era, nor your car.
Please, no after auction games. Please have your permissions and funds in order before bidding.
