I want to sell my Fastback, first registration 01.10.1968, mainly because of my age and also that I am too accustomed with my Rover 75 Connoisseur. Honestly said, I have become afraid to use the Rapier without all the modern comfort.
I bought it in November 2013 in the Newton Steward. My wife and I drove it up to the Isle of Arran in Scotland during about a week, using the time to visit a few things on the way up and get accustomed again to a Fastback (I had one in the early 1970ies for about 6 years).
The car was the first years outside, covered with a professional hood and the use was perhaps 2, 3 times a week of about 40 miles each, with some drives on the mainland, accumulating all in all probably about 5'000 Miles or so.
I have not used it for over two years, it was kept the last one and a half year in a Garage.
Now to the car: After I got it I realised quite soon that a respray is needed. Which was done by a numpty in Ardrossan. As you can see on the pics the rust came back after about 18 month later. I then made the decision to sell it. Previous I have bough new wheels (see pics).
The general view is, it should get a new, thorough respray, after repairing the two body faults on the rear.
Engine: The car is moted until early January and run perfect the last time used (about an year ago).
Interior: with the exception at the left front the car is dry, even in heavy rain. We, the mechanic and I have not located the source of water into the cabin. Everything else is not pristine but acceptable. I had a modern Radio installed.
We have owned this unique, low mileage, fully documented & very original 61 year old Sunbeam Supreme Mark III for the last 27 years.

After many months restoring in our Harrogate workshops set among'st the famous Harlow Car Gardens and Betty's Tea Rooms We believe this superb Sunbeam Alpine is one of the best you will find on the market today.
The Alpine was the first model, that was issued after the revival of the brand Sunbeam in 1953.
Between 1953 and 1955 1.282 units were built as Mk I and only 300 units as Mk III, the Mk II never was built.
The coachwork was fitted by Thrupp & Maberley. Sources assume, that only 200-300 cars .....
