Just like Rovers, it all hinges on the model and year. Sunbeam Alpine; the
earliest are rare, drop-head 2 door cars, bred for European rallying, hence
the name. Competed in by the Moss siblings. Stirling and Pat, amongst other
luminaries. Nowadays hard to find parts for and restore, BUT worth the
Sunbeam Alpine; series 1 thru V mechanically were loosely based on the
corresponding Hillman/Humber models of the same years, consequently are easy
to get parts for. Alpines from these iterations are easy to restore and keep
Sunbeam Tigers based upon series IV Alpine, with significant structural and
mechanical changes. Worth quite a bit even un-restored, and anything up to
Sunbeam Imps, similarly were loosely based upon Hillman Imp mechanicals and
body styling. Valuable ONLY to a died-in-the-wool Imp enthusiast.
Sunbeam motorcycles....ahhhhhh I WISH
