eBay watch: 1960s Sunbeam Alpine Series 5 convertible sports car


You'll have to dig deep on eBay to find a cooler car than this 1960s Sunbeam Alpine Series 5 convertible, which also has a 99 pence starting price.

Obviously it's unlikely to sell for that, but we can dream. It was imported from California, hence the preserved bodywork, but has been converted to a right-hand drive for easier UK driving. It has also been repainted in the original colour.

On top of that, there's a catalogue of maintenance work listed by the seller to emphasise how much attention this car has had - see the listing for the full breakdown. Estimated total mileage for this 1967 car isn't that high either, said to be around 62,000 - although with so many parts updated, that's fairly irrelevant.

All in all, it's a stunner that has also benefitted from a lot of care and attention too. If you want a classic, it's worth a closer inspection. That price, as we said, is 99 pence. But the final price should be a bit higher.
