The Sunbeam Alpine is probably better known by its Shelby cousin - the Sunbeam Tiger (an Alpine with a V8). But the Alpine is a simple British roadster from the Rootes Group with classic 50's styling cues (tail fins!) and athletic sports car aspirations.
The Alpine is powered by a simple 1.7 liter inline-4 cylinder engine fed via twin Zenith-Stromberg semi-downdraught carburetors and good for 93 horsepower. The seller makes the strange statement: this car has not being started , but it runs. It is anyone's guess as to what that means, but it would be nice to keep this one as a simple Alpine and avoid the inevitable 289 cubic inch V8 swap, even if the current engine is fried.
This Alpine sports a mostly new interior (including weather strips and seals) and the body was resprayed in the original color about 15 years ago. It really looks like a nice car to have for a starter classic that won't need a bunch of work.
