1966 Sunbeam Alpine Series V

An older restoration recently out of storage, this four-speed manual with overdrive car shows just 73,428 miles

HAU353D was first registered in May 1966 and started life in Nottingham as shown on the original buff log book .

Retaining the Series IV rear styling with the fins largely removed, the final Alpine version had a new five-bearing 1,725cc engine with twin Zenith-Stromberg semi-downdraught carburettors producing 93 bhp.

This car was rebuilt some 10 years ago, which included a colour change from the original British Racing Green to the current red. The chrome work was also redone at this time.

Its most recent MOT was issued in 2017 at 73,351 miles, but from 2012 to date, HAU353D has only done 148 miles which explains why the car is offered in the sale today.

The Alpine comes with a workshop manual, some old MOTs and various bills and invoices.

It looks in sound and solid condition with a nice clean engine bay.  Bidders are advised that the ignition switch is causing trouble, although it was driven onto the transporter prior to delivery.
