For Sale: 1964 Sunbeam Alpine III GT in Winston Salem, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1964 Sunbeam Alpine III GT is a largely original British-built roadster and offers both a cloth soft top as well as an original color-matched removable hardtop. Acquired by the seller in 2019, the 1592cc 4 cylinder 4-speed manual transmission is original to the car and features a rebuilt Webber carburetor and heater core. Upgrades include new carpet, vinyl seats, vinyl door panels, retro-lap belts, and a resurfaced/sealed dashboard and steering wheel. Finished in Kinetic Blue over a black vinyl interior, this convertible is now offered with the soft-top (integrated behind the back seat) and removable hardtop, and a clear North Carolina title in the seller’s name.

This car was designed courtesy of the Rootes Group (UK) who produced and designed the Alpine for the North American market from 1953 to 1955, and then 1959 to 1968. This third-generation example from 1964 is one of only 5,863 built and is described as being free of rust and undercoated. Finished in Kinetic Blue, the exterior received a repaint in 2017 from the previous owner and brightwork includes the front and rear bumpers with overrides, the grille, window surrounds, a door-mounted driver's mirror, and a trunk-mounted luggage rack. The seller notes that this vehicle is missing a chrome trim plate/gasket around the gas cap area, the center console doesn't have a locking mechanism and the hardtop is in good condition but the latches will need to be rechromed or painted. 

Featuring black front bucket seats with blue accents, the interior was overhauled over the last two years and is complemented by matching door panels, center armrest , and floor mats. Equipment includes a burled walnut dash, mahogany steering wheel, retro lap belts, Noico 80 mil sound heat mats, a locking center console, and refinished trunk space with black carpet.

Instrumentation consists of individual gauges, including a 7k rpm tachometer and 140mph speedometer in as well as gauges for voltage, oil pressure, fuel level, and water temperature. The odometer shows 30,581 miles, but true mileage is unknown.

The 1592cc 4 cylinder power is fed to the rear wheels via a 4-speed manual transmission. Recent maintenance includes an oil change last month and a tune up and all new fluids last year.
