Vehicle Description

In 1961 there were approximately 110 Harrington Alpines produced by Thomas Harington Coach Builders Ltd. These cars were based on Series II Alpine bodies and were produced from 1961. The Sunbeam Harrington's were sold the authorized Rootes Ltd. dealerships. The Harrington Alpines brought together classic British styling coachwork, a superb chassis by Sunbeam and race breed performance tuning by George Hartwell Ltd to make this Harrington Alpine an outright blast to drive. What made these are cars special was the addition of the fiberglass fastback roof, which gave the Harrington Alpines a sleek, artsy, coupe functionality.

Sunbeam Harrington Alpine chassis # B9102814 finished light blue metallic paint with a dark blue interior, wood steering, and a Momo shift knob to top it off. At first glance the Sunbeam Harrington Alpine catches your eye with it classy, but sport-minded styling. Everything was done with function and form in mind. These cars truly cloak us in the styling of the early British 1960's style. The interior of the Sunbeam Harrington Alpine is exquisite with dark blue leather abounding and complemented by beautiful burled wood on the dash and shift knob. Another item of note is the beautiful Moto-Lita wood/aluminum steering wheel that is in exceptional condition.

The coachwork is exceptional and just take a look at the hinged deck lid, the angled taillights and stunning metallic paint. The Alpine and Harrington badging state there is something special here. The bright work is tastefully done accentuating the sporty lines of the Harrington hardtop. This car looks amazing from every angle and states performance is here.

As with most enthusiast cars the engine is the heart of it. This right hand drive car sports a 1.6L I-4 engine with Webber Carbs and from the 1st crack of the engine you know this car wants to go! George Hartwell Ltd did all the engine tuning for Harrington at the time of the original build. As with the exceptional styling of the exterior, the engine also is something to behold with chrome accents throughout and those Weber carbs windup all motoring aficionados. The Harrington also has true wire wheels w/knockoffs to complete the ensemble.
