1966 Sunbeam Alpine Series V Make: Sunbeam Model: Alpine Year: 1966 Mileage: 83473 VIN: B395005504GT0D Configuration: Right Hand Drive Registration: EGW831D Transmission: manual The Sunbeam Alpine Series V was introduced in October 1965 with the same 92.5bhp 1725cc engine as the Sunbeam Rapier, a tough and reliable unit that is regarded as one of the better engines of the era. The Series V continued until January 1968, when production ceased. This example was registered in May 1966 and has had five previous registered keepers, with the last but one keeping it for over 12 years. The car is finished in a non-standard but attractive BMW Avus Blue, with a black leather interior. The vendor admits that while it presents quite well, it would now benefit from some further restoration and detailing. The original GT hard-top is fitted; there is no soft-top available. The recorded mileage is 83,473 miles, and while this can't be warranted, the very extensive history file does suggest this figure is accurate. We're told by the vendor that all the instruments work, and the overdrive operates as it should. The tyres are good, and surround wire wheels fitted with embellishers. A stainless steel exhaust is fitted and the bumpers have been refurbished. While, as an historic vehicle, the Sunbeam is MoT-exempt, a new ticket was put on it in May 2022. There are certificates from 1995 to 2017, when the car was SORNed. It was acquired in 2021 by the vendor, who has partially recommissioned it. The history folder is large and detailed. It features invoices, books, magazines, brochures, catalogues, tax discs, photographs and information/memorabilia from shows that the car has taken part in. Best of all, there is a handwritten log that lists all the work carried out from 1990 to 2015. PLEASE SEE BELOW FOR VIDEO PRODUCED 19TH JULY BY ACA OF THIS CAR.
