1965 SUNBEAM ALPINE SERIES 5 GT. FANTASTIC EXAMPLE. OVERDRIVE. £14,995.
Sunbeam Alpine was produced in five versions from 1959 until 1968. The
final version was fitted with the all new 1725cc Rootes
engine with 5-bearingcrank and twin Strombergs. This car is a Sunbeam Alpine Mk5 that was first registered 1st November 1965 and it had a comprehensive restoration
15 years ago including a bare shell re-paint. It has covered only
around 3000 miles since then and was dry stored for two long periods so
it remains in beautiful order. As you can see from the photos it also
presents beautifully with a high quality paint finish in Carnival Red and outstanding
panel fit. The underside of the car is pleasingly clean. The black interior is very good with a good set of black carpets and the original wooden steering wheel. Two
years (and just 200 miles) ago it was treated to a comprehensive
service and re-commissioning and it is now ready to use and
running and driving superbly with a pleasing exhaust note through the
stainless exhaust and precise gear-change with working overdrive. Fitted
with genuine Minilite wheels, Lucas spot Lights, excellent chrome
bumpers and mohair hood that is like new. One of the best. Invoices on
file date back to 1984, when the
car clearly spent some time living in Spain. Sixteen old MOTs show that
it has covered fewer than 7,000 miles during
the last 24 years. The odometer tripped over the 100,000 mark in 2003,
the car now showing 105,000 miles in total which is thought to be
correct, although its MOT history only dates back to 1996 so we cannot
be entirely sure. It has a current MOT until February 2021 with no
advisories listed. There are bills on file back to 1984. Work carried
out over the last few years includes adjusting and
overhauling the steering, new top ball joints, removing the sump and
1970 MGB ROADSTER. OVERDRIVE. RECENT PAINT AND RESTORE. ONLY 2 OWNERS. VERY NICE CAR. £12495.
We sell a lot of MGBs and just occasionally, one comes along that really
stands out from the crowd. Which is where this little beauty comes in – just
look at it! What a shame that cars can’t talk because, according to
the V5C, this gorgeous Roadster had just one owner from new in June 1970
until the 2nd owner acquired it in 2019. At this point the car had been
in dry storage
for at least two decades or more and although it was rock solid and
totally original, the paint had faded and it was in need of total
recommissioning following all those years sat idle. There are invoices
on file from Moss for over
£1,200 in parts alone which excludes the cost of many other parts for
there are no bills such as king pins, suspension rebuild, brake
calipers, carpets, door cards,
chromework, exhaust system, batteries, tyres etc – not to mention all
that has gone into fitting those parts and making it look this good.
the whole car has been gone through and parts replaced as required. The
finishing touch was a full repaint in the original and
oh-so-Seventies beige which looks mighty impressive and sets the car
off to a tee. We are told that the car needed no welding whatsoever and,
can see in the photos, the panel gaps are excellent. It comes with both
hood and full tonneau's. It is both MOT and road tax exempt but still sailed through its MOT in April with no
advisories recorded at 44611 miles. It now shows 45727 on the clock (not
warranted). This highly original, freshly rejuvenated, effectively
one-owner MG is a car that anyone would be proud to be seen in.

a fresh re-paint in French Olive Green (very close to the original
Silver Moss Green) and there a pictures showing the work in the file.
All the tools are in the drop down tailgate compartment. The car has
excellent oil pressure, a quiet engine, a smooth gearbox, plenty of
power and drives very well. These estates are now very rare and a useful

been substituted for a wood rim wheel with a Harrington centre boss. The car is
sporting LeMans badges on the front wings which is incorrect for this model but
they have been on the car for about 40 years so will remain. 2903 PJ was a
personal plate and by 1986 it had the registration number RVG 60. In 1989 DVLA
issued the car with ACC 356A. A retired Sunbeam specialist with over 25 years’

and photos to document the work carried out. This included a full engine and overdrive
gearbox rebuild; bare shell repaint in the original Carnival Red; all new
brakes; new chrome; full retrim including headlining and Webasto sunroof plus
