   1963 Sunbeam Alpine  
 
On March 24th, 2005 a large car transporter arrived in Bradd Street carrying a gorgeous 1963 Sunbeam Alpine S3. Subject to a meticulous 4-year rotisserie restoration, the car was completed in 2000.
The strip down revealed an undamaged body, except for minor door dings, and absolutely no rust. The body was gently bead-blasted and phosphate plated for corrosion resistance prior to painting.
The car was originally from Oregon and had a factory gold exterior and black interior. It was repainted white, with top of the line Glassurit brand polyurethane paint from BASF, and fitted with a new red interior. The new convertible top is white, as is the tonneau cover.
The engine was completely rebuilt less than 750 miles ago. At the same time the gearbox was rebuilt with new bearings and seals and a new clutch. The brakes are completely new as is the steering system.
Virtually all electrical components that could be replaced were replaced with new. The wiring harness was removed, un-taped, checked, cleaned and re-taped. The exhaust is a lifetime warranty stainless steel system..
The suspension was completely rebuilt including Spax gas adjustable shocks on all four wheels and the rear end was rebuilt with new seals. The car is still in excellent condition four years later.
