1965 Other Makes Sunbeam Alpine

Thanks for stopping by to take a look at our very cool 1965 Sunbeam Alpine Series IV Convertible. The Alpine became famous in many films of the 60’s and was driven by legendary performers like Cary Grant, Elizabeth Taylor, Michael Caine and Tuesday Weld. From James Bond films to the Get Smart television series, the Sunbeam Alpine played a series of co-starring roles.


This Alpine is nearly identical to the one driven by Secret Agent Maxwell Smart and Agent 99 in the hit TV series “Get Smart”. “But it was a Sunbeam Tiger” you say? Well, sometimes... Throughout the show's production, many Alpines were rebadged and used in various scenes. Apparently the machine guns wouldn’t retract and fit alongside a V8. Go figure.


We’ve brought this great little car up to modern standards while keeping its British motoring heritage alive and ready for the road once again. Whether you want a weekend cruiser, a club or show car or a vintage racer, this Alpine fills the spot nicely. It looks great and drives just as nice. Do check out the video.


Rarity

Produced in limited quantities from 1959 to 1968 The Sunbeam Alpine is a rare sight to see outside of a British car meet. This is a Series IV car with it’s trademark hardcover boot that completely hides the convertible top. West Coast car with no rust issues that are so common to cars from the east.
