This 1967 Sunbeam Alpine convertible is reportedly a great driver, although it was stored for some indefinite amount of time starting in 1985. It’s said to be a three-owner car from new, with the second owner having kept it a total of 35 years.
The car was blue prior to a red repaint during a restoration in the early ’80s. Underside shots of the car reveal a solid structure, and the trunk appears to be in remarkable condition — great news, as rust can be a real problem on these cars (interested buyers should still have a thorough inspection done prior to bidding). The seller says is even still has the original spare.
Under the hood, the original carbs have been replaced with a Weber, although the factory pieces come with the car. The interior is a bit worn with some fraying evident on the driver seat’s back, discolored carpet, and a dash pad that isn’t 100% attached. But this is a driver, so the needs noted shouldn’t be too big of a deal.
In typical English car fashion, the engine leaks oil. The seller says there is a small leak around the distributor and front seal. But neither is a huge deal, and winter’s looming, so if you’re in interested buyer, you’ll likely have plenty of down time in the coming months to have the seals replaced.
