|In April of 1997 I bought a tomato-red Series II Sunbeam Alpine convertible. It Slices! It Dices! No, that's the other Sunbeam... Mine (the Tomato) is a red version of the first James Bond car, driven by Sean Connery in the first JB movie Dr. No. Most people think of another Sunbeam car, the Tiger, basically this car with a Ford V-8 and enough structural mods to keep it feasible. The Alpine was aimed at a more leisurely market, folks who wanted enough speed but mostly comfort, sort of a mid-size "sport" vehicle.
These pages are my desktop reference for the Tomato and other Sunbeams I might buy (like a Rapier, a four-seat convertible). I can't even begin to pretend I know much about British Cars and automotives in general, though I've driven and taken the Tomato apart with success. There are mostly reference materials collected from others (and sometimes enhanced), and a few biographical and planning pages. Every page has link buttons for a few often-used pages, though there are many others, listed on the next page.
