Basic Roadster: 1965 Sunbeam Alpine IV

There was a time when V8 powered Sunbeam Tigers could be found for the price of this next basic inline-4 powered Alpine…but we can’t dwell in the past like a bunch of Neanderthals…right?  Anyway, I still love a good manual gearbox equipped sportster with a basic overhead valve powered 4-cylinder. Find this 1965 Sunbeam Alpine IV offered for $12,990 in Sonoma, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.
