This February 1960 registered Sunbeam Rapier Mk3 is the rare and desirable Convertible version.

This example has had one owner until approx. 4 years ago when it was comprehensively restored by expert Rootes restorer Stan Smith.

The car is in stunning all-round condition, bodywork is excellent, there is no rust, bubbling or scratches – it also has had the hood renewed. Mechanically the car is ‘on the button’ with a healthy 1494cc, 4-cylinder engine with twin carburettors and four speed gearbox and pulls strongly. The interior is in excellent condition, all the dashboard dials work correctly and the chrome work is new with no pitting, rust or staining.

XOT508 is the car’s original registration number and still retains all its original features, and is painted in the gorgeous original two tone blue colour scheme – in my opinion one of the best colour combinations.

It was registered new in February 1960 and has some documented history which contains the current V5, invoices for work completed over the past years and an original Owner’s Handbook.

The car is MOT exempt and the recorded mileage is 78300 but this may increase with use.

In my opinion the car is in excellent show condition, and drives beautifully and always receives admiring looks and ‘thumbs up’ on the road or on the rally field. It has been well restored and well looked after both during my care and with previous owners.

You will not be disappointed with this car, a real ‘head turner’ and one for the shows.

This car is being offered at an attractive and realistic price.
