"The current owner, who bought it in 1964, has renovated and used it over the years. Nothing has to be fixed, and the car is ready to drive."


The current owner purchased this beautiful Sunbeam in 1964 and had it completely rebuilt, including the repair and replacement of old parts. It was put together with care and has been used sparingly during the summer. It has been fixed and serviced when needed; for example, the entire inside was restored to its original design around 20 years ago. In addition, a substantial amount of literature is included with the purchase.
Because this car enthusiast believes he is pressed for time to properly use the car, he wishes someone else should take over it.

Facts about the model

Sunbeam Sport Saloon MK III

En vinnare av Monte Carlo rallyt 1955!

Från 1954 till 1957 fortsatte bilen, men utan Talbot - namnet och marknadsfördes som Sunbeam MkIII och märktes på kylaren som Sunbeam Supreme. Drophead-kupén gjordes inte efter 1955.

Det gjordes några smärre förändringar framtill med förstorade luftintag på varje sida av kylargrillen och tre små luftintag precis under varje sida av motorhuven nära vindrutan. Två-ton färgscheman var också tillgängliga. Motoreffekten ökades till 80 hk (60 kW) och överväxel blev ett alternativ.

En Mk III som testades av The Motor magazine 1955 hade en topphastighet på 93,6 mph (150,6 km/h) och kunde accelerera från 0-60 mph (97 km/h) på 17,4 sekunder. En bränsleförbrukning på 22,1 miles per imperial gallon (12,8 L/100 km; 18,4 mpg - US ) registrerades. Testbilen kostade £1191 inklusive skatter.

De största Rootes Group-återförsäljarna i Leicester, Castles of Leicester, erbjöd en ombyggnad som flyttade växlingen till transmissionstunneln, modifierade cylinderhuvudet, monterade en luftskop för motorhuven och ändrade hur bagageluckan öppnades. Dessa modeller var inte kopplade till Sunbeam-fabriken utan kallas ibland för Mk IIIS. Ett 30-40-tal bilar modifierades. Den reviderade växlingen erbjöds också som ett eftermarknadstillbehör och passade även att passa till tidigare modeller.

Cirka 2250 gjordes.

  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends.
