    Nice car. I believe this was sold in Florida a couple of years ago.

    I always seemed to get oil on the carpet when I had my series 1.

    Didn't know that you had a S1. Gearbox Oil on the carpet may happen but what a great method to check oil level without lying in the dirt ;-)

    I own B9007240 and several other Sunbeams you don't know about. I own cars of all series including multiple cars of some series plus cars of the Arrow range. If I need to check something under the car I drive it onto my lift. I'm getting too old to crawl around on the ground.

    I've had this car since 1987 and I don't have any photos of the car and considering it's stored away in one of my buildings at a rental on the opposite side of town and has many pieces stored in, on and around it I can say I wouldn't even consider trying to take photos of it. The car is red with a black interior.

    1987 is the same year when I bought mine as a complete wreck. Add 2000 to your VIN and you'll be pretty close. Carnival Red/Black was pretty common. Mine was Moonstone...

    I've never restored a series 1 or 2. I'm not a fan of the soft top frame and other items.

    Perhaps you missed something. From my perspective the purest way of driving an Alpine despite it's issues ;)

    I don't like the seats in a Series 1 or 2. They're very uncomfortable for someone my size.

    Tempting, but one of the Firestones is missing a valve cap....no deal. I dragged this old thing back to AU from Ontario CAN back in 2017. Just as well it was worth it cause it wasn't a cheap excercise. DSC02555 (Large).JPG

    Yikes...! Sorry about the image size, clearly my PC skills are not as advanced as those wielding a spanner....
