In addition, it has a new stainless steel exhaust system and new interior ( seats, carpets,etc) The car also has a serviceable hardtop.

Thanks Dan,
This car was originally my friend Steve Shuttleton's car . Both he and I have owned it for many years. He did an excellent restoration on it this past year. I'm only selling it because we have another convertible; I just don't have the room or money for two cars . Luckily, I still have the room for my 1970 Norton Commando. Cheers, Tom

Dan Thanks, however my computer is a little wonky and i wasn't able to send them . I'm having a tech come over in the next week or two to resolve some issues with it. I probably would be able to send the additional images if you sent me an email first at gldeagle@frontiernet.net; then I think I could send them on the return email. Tom

Hi Dan, Did you ever get the chance to load those extra Sunbeam shots I sent you? Just wondering. Thanks ,Tom
 
It is a good looking car.

Was the original 1600 engine rebuilt?
All-sync gearbox?
Is that an alternator in the one photo (with a beefy adjustment bracket)?
Has it been converted to negative ground?
How about the underside - any rust?

Thanks,
Mike
 
Tom, very smart looking Alpine and has some nice extras, the hardtop, factory radio console.

In the photos it's a little cars to see but is there some bubbling under the paint at the sill joint at the leading edge of the right door? You say the paint may need some attention?
 
The paint job is over 25-30 years old and pretty solid and fine for a everyday driver; there's an odd small crack or bubble but nothing serious.
To be clear, this car has been owned by myself and a close friend ( combined time) for over 42 years. There's been iterations over the years,
including a V6 conversion; which I didn't feel worked with the car. It currently has been restored to a traditional Series four format with modern updates. it rides and drives beautifully. Initial purchase price was $7500; add in $18,000 for work done at the same friend's restoration shop;. He's an incredible craftsman and does top notch work. I have all receipts and would be willing to have any professional wrench give the car a once over . If i was keeping the car ,I would consider painting it down the line; But, I would probably wait a while and just enjoy driving it.

Steve,
You are the Rebel Harness Guy; and a damn good restoration guy too!
I must have been thinking of my Norton. I stand corrected.
Cheers,
