1968 SUNBEAM ALPINE SERIES 5. CARNIVAL RED. NEW HOOD, RESTORED, OVERDRIVE, MINILITES. £16,995.
This beautiful car was first registered 19th March 1968. One of the last 200 Alpines to leave
the production line. This 1968 Series V was purchased by the last owner (now deceased) in 2011. He decided to give it a thorough renovation, including fresh
paint in its original shade of Carnival red, which has been
completed. The paintwork is superb and very, very shiny! Invoices on file for over £2200 cover the usual parade of items needed for
reassembly, such as door seals, pedal rubbers, sidelight and body rubbers etc.
The car has had new carpets and door cards as well as freshly retrimmed seats.
The interior is now very smart. A new vinyl hood has also been added and
the car sits on a set of Minilite style wheels. It had a brake overhaul in 2017
with new hoses and cylinders and is now ready for the
road. The car starts well, has very good oil pressure and drives very well. The 1725cc engine and 4 speed plus overdrive gearbox has plenty of power and propels the car down the road with power to spare. The car comes with a current
V5C and a file of invoices for the parts used during its renovation. The owner registered the car with the Alpine owners club and they gave the car the I.D. number 3239.
