1954 SUNBEAM TALBOT-ALPINE CONVERTIBLE MK1
FULL NUT AND BOLT ROTISSERIE RESTORATION
RESTORED TO SUIT DAILY USE
To achieve this standard of restoration, $175,000 was spent.
A photograhic account and written list of the works come with the car.
The result since the project started in 2011 is a magnificent driving classic English sports car, with power and style aplenty.
Perhaps you saw Grace Kelly and Cary Grant driving one in Alfred Hitchcock's movie, To Catch a Thief.
Improvements on this recently restored example have brought it up to the specification of an Alpine Special;
High-torque starter motor - fast cranking
Upgraded compression via larger valves (inlet and exhaust), port and polishing
Re-jetted and larger downdraught carburettor - Stromberg
Sports exhaust - exhausts to the right hand side as per the Special
Electric fan - just doesn't get hot anymore
Disc brakes all round with booster
New rear assembly with 3.89 ratio Borg Warner differential assembly
Disc brakes all round
Five speed manual gearbox
Electronic fuel pump
Electric interior car heater
Mercedes cloth soft top and tonneau.
14" thermo fan
Original tool kit, jack and wheel-brace
