Yesterday was "My today" with my Sunbeam Alpine. A '67 SV Commodore Blue Modified with 2.8 V6 late Mustang T5 Holley 390 on an OFT 4 bbl Manifold. It is equipped with A/C for those hot days but yesterday was a very nice cool one.

Drove it for more than 200 miles yesterday thru some awesome backroads around the South Carolina country side.

Glad I had the top on because before the last hour of driving I ran into a bit of rain.

I prepped my garage to replace the slave cylinder tomorrow morning. They seem to last me ten years. This time I'm using Castrol DOT 4. After the fix I'll take it around my ten mile in town drive with the hardtop still off for the fun season. It is the GT model so I do not have a soft top.

I got inspired by the Austin Healy episode of wheeler dealers so I drove my alpine to the snake, a short section of the Mulholland Highway in Malibu. It was a nice 200 mile drive on a nice day. What a great car. This is what life is about.

John, Those wheels look like mine!

I bought them from "RON's Wheels" on Ebay about 6-7 years ago.

Running P195 55 R15's The rims are 7" er's.... Very nice ride.

Might have seen your Alpine at Norcross, GA ?

I looked at your pictures, the wheels do look the same. I bought mine off of Craigslist from a guy in Woodstock Ga. I have been to Norcross but not with my Sunbeam. I live in north Ga. close to Chattanooga Tn. My wife and I drove it to Knoxville one weekend but that is as far as I have been from here with it. John

I drove my "new-old" Alpine from the seller's house yesterday; afterwards got down to some much needed work.

Flushed the brake and clutch hydraulics. I wish I had photographed the reservoir for the brake system; it was as if someone had poured India ink into the system, it was that murky and black. Topped off the rear end with some gear oil as the it sang to me in third and fourth gears all the way back from the seller's house. Readjusted the steering wheel--somehow it was previously adjusted to where the arms of the wheel were at the 12 and 6 position while the wheels were centerline. Tried hitting all the grease points I could find while the car was on jacks.

I'm just hoping I didn't make my other cars jealous as they await work to get them back on the road...

I got my sunbeam back from the trim shop. I had a new top put on and a boot made and everything behind the seats redone.

In reply to # 59 by Skye Did you repair or replace some worn out parts?
Add a new accessory?
Take it out for a drive on twisty back roads?

On August 12, 2018 I entered our 1966 Sunbeam Alpine in an import-only car meet sponsored by our local British Car Club. We had 120 cars registered with well over half being British (MG, Triumph, Austin Healy, Jaguar, Sunbeam, Morris Minor). Site was 45 minutes from home and a dozen of us caravaned together to get there. Extremely memorable day.

Where did you obtain them and any part numbers?

I had a special invite by Bill Bulpitt, the Coordinator of the event, to bring my Blue Boy V6 to attend the Tiger Group that was at Hilton Head Island November 2nd thru the 4th.

It was a real honor, which I also count a privilege to be amongst all-them-thar-tigers and the owners!

My Sunbeam Alpine, powered by a FORD (Cologne) 2.8 V6 performs quite well, was the only non-tiger present. It drew a lot of attention, probably due to the fact it was the only non-tiger present.

If you have a Sunbeam, please enjoy it to the fullest! Should it not be running, work a few hours each day and Keep'em-on-the-Road,
