The Sunbeam Alpine Fastback was another Rootes Group oddball to come from the factory in Ryton-on-Dunsmore, Warwickshire. Whereas the Alpine convertible was a small 2-seater based on the Hillman Husky, the Fastback version was a 2+2 based on the Hillman Hunter and was essentially a low trim version of the Rootes Arrow based Sunbeam Rapier Fastback. Confused? Don't be, just buy this 1969 Sunbeam Alpine Fastback project here on craigslist powered with a Mazda 12A rotary for $1900 and report back to us when it is complete. Tip from Kaibeezy.
This Alpine Fastback is a project with a capital P! The seller has already installed a Mazda 12A rotary and 5-speed manual gearbox, but also added BMW 2002 struts, brakes, and adjustable coil overs for the front suspension and a small ford axle for the rear. Some of the necessary adjustments include sourcing new wheels for the front and some paint. A lot of paint.
