Sunbeam Parts for Sunbeam Alpine and Sunbeam Tiger
Sunbeam spare parts and accessories are available for Sunbeam Alpine and Tiger models.
In the 50's Sunbeam, in particular the 90 model was very successful in road rallying. The Sunbeam Alpine was based on the 90, essentially a two-seat roadster version. It was manufactured for just 2 years from 1953 to 1955. The 1955 Sunbeam Rapier continued rallying success. The four door version was the Hillman Minx (and Singer Gazelle). The Alpine returned in 1959. The related Venezia appeared in 1963. The Tiger ("Alpine V8"), an Alpine with an American V8, was brought out in 1964, and was assembled by Jensen. Alpines were entered in Le Mans in from 1961 to 1963 though had a bad finishing record. In 1966, the Tiger was largely replaced in racing by the Imp Sport, a version of the Hillman Imp. In 1964 after financial difficulties, Chrysler bought about a third of the company, finally taking full control in 1967 and renamed the group to Chrsler UK in 1970. Chrysler now owned Sunbeam, Talbot, Darracq, Hillman, Humber, and Singer.
