Description

This Sunbeam was purchased by the current owner, a car enthusiast, ten years ago and he immediately began the renovation. Before assembly, the car was disassembled into components, and each part was carefully renovated or replaced with original parts. To achieve this outstanding result, he enlisted the assistance of the best professionals in sheet metal works, painters, and car saddle making.
The goal of the renovation was to create a car in show condition, to be accomplished when completed, it received several awards, including Nostalgia's first prize in the Historic Vehicle Award 2019 out of hundreds of cars. Because there are other cars in the collection that require attention, the owner has decided to sell this gem to any enthusiast.

Facts about the model

Sunbeam-Talbot 90 hade blivit en framgångsrik rallybil, med framskjutna placeringar i Monte Carlo-rallyt och Coupe des Alpes (en. Alpine Rally). Rootes-handlaren George Hartwell, som själv hade tävlat med bilen, tog för eget bruk fram en tvåsitsig roadster-kaross på ett Sunbeam-Talbot 90-chassi. Rootes ledning, som letade efter en bil som kunde ta upp konkurrensen med Austin Healey och Triumph, gillade vad de såg och beslutade att serietillverka bilen. Den döptes till Sunbeam Alpine, för att påminna om rallyframgångarna.
