1967 SUNBEAM ALPINE HISTORY
I searched for one in this particular condition
because my intention was to make a "tiger" clone using a mustang 5.0. So I
removed the outer rockers and added some serious but hidden support running the
full length of the rockers, a kind of "frame connector". I got both sides done
as far as welding the supports, and one rocker on, but still need to do the
other. I started to patch the lower quarters but decided to order new lower
metal instead. That's where the bodywork sits, the rest is very solid, save some
amateur dent repair above the left front wheel area.
This started with a very solid body with only
minor rust in the outer rocker areas and rear wheel well and real lower quarter
The unibody X frame that is the issue with all
these is one of the most solid I have seen since these were new!
I had Chet at VINYL CREATIONS in Joliet, IL. do a
new top a few years ago, still looks good.
The engine is a tired series IV single down
draft, runs, no oil smoke, but noisy bottom end when warms up, even so still
For those who may be interested in keeping this
an Alpine I
have a fresh dual side draft complete 1750 C.C. available.
Many, Many parts (more than I'll ever use!)
