    I forgot how clean the lines are on these cars. Looks like a well cared for example. Nice colour and good wheel choice. Too nice to "Tiger-ize", in my opinion.

      Agree! Gaaaa I can resist anything but temptation! If that car weren't 1,800 miles from me, I'd be sorely tempted. Willing to bet that some SOB will convert that, too much money to be had.

    I sold my Alpine a few years back for this money. For a non-rusty runner that looks this nice, I hope someone grabs it and drives it as it is. These have a really nice light touch ride on the open road. Mine had been fully restored with everything new in the suspension and steering. I still have a freshly rebuilt engine for this model floating around in the shop. The handling and ride is seriously altered with a big motor up front but that likely won't stop the conversion crowd. I miss mine and preferred the Sunbeam over the same era TR4A I have. The wife likes the Triumph lines more and space was limited so the Alpine went. The TR was quicker for sure and had OD which made it easier to use. Only OD option for the Sunbeam is the earlier non-synchro 1st gear box from a Mk 1 or 2. Or an expensive conversion from Australia which sounded great but was very pricey. This is tempting but in slim down mode at the moment.
