Sunbeam Alpine Series II 1962 // Full Photographic Restoration // SIMILAR REQUIRED


Sunbeam Alpine Series II


This Series II Alpine was originally 1 of the 241 cars that left the Armstrong Siddeley Coventry production line week ending 12th January 1962 shortly before production was moved to another Rootes factory, colour Lake Blue and destined for North America.  The car remained in California until it was returned back to the UK in 2003 in part restored state being purchased from Motoring Investments, San Diego, Californina complete with its original registration plates and State of California Certificate of Title.

The history file is packed with hundreds of invoices, receipts, original December 1960 service data sheets and all filed by year plus 600+ detailed images of the car arriving back to the UK in May 2003 and subsequent bare shell restoration carried out over a fourteen year period from 2003 to 2017. This file documents the incredible passion and attention to detail that has gone into restoring this beautiful Series II Alpine.

Having only covered a mere 2747 miles since restoration this is an excellent opportunity to own a stunning show standard extensively restored Sunbeam Alpine Series II.

More details

The Sunbeam Alpine Series 1 sports car was replaced at the October 1960 Motor Show, following a production run of only 12 months in which 11,904 units were built, by the Series 2 model, which would remain in production until February 1963 with a total of 19,956 cars produced. The Series 2 received some minor alterations to the rear suspension, which involved an increase in the width of the leaf springs, together with larger dampers. However, some of the features of the Series 1 were retained, such as vinyl seats, a padded dashboard, and adjustable panels, as were the optional extras of wire wheels, an aluminium hardtop, a fitted occasional rear seat, and overdrive. Furthermore, in addition, the Series 2 now offered an increase in engine capacity from 1494 to 1592cc.
