Back To Your Rootes: 1967 Sunbeam Alpine

The Sunbeam Alpine was originally engineered and produced by the UK based Rootes Group (Sunbeam, Karrier, Commer, Humber, Hillman, Talbot & Singer), and around the time this Alpine was built, the Sunbeam marque was acquired by Chrysler Corp. The Alpine design work was done by former Ford employee Ken Howes, and coincidentally it looks a lot like the first generation Thunderbird. Find this 1967 Sunbeam Alpine offered for $11,500 in Lyman, WA via craigslist. Tip from JB1025.

  1. Drove a Tiger as a parts getter back when I was a wee lad working summers in a local garage. Laid rubber every time I let the clutch out as I didnt know how to feather it and the clutch was stronger than my teenage I like these
