Interesting fact - The Sunbeam Alpine model, was the first car used in the James Bond movies. (Not this actual one, of course)!
This example of the much loved Rootes Alpine is of show standard and mechanically excellent. Put this with the ultra straight lines and quality restoration make this a very desirable classic and priced very well.
