5 Ws and an H Links Guides Tomato Gallery Document Revision Log  4.1.1. Sunbeam Links


If you have a page about your Sunbeam that somehow hasn't been registered or found by Alta Vista, Yahoo! or anybody else (I check regularly), then feel free to Tell Me , though there are others that have better "ultimate Sunbeam Links" pages. I've set up The Sunbeam Auto Showroom to collect interested webster's links into a central repository and spare me manual mantenance of a list. I do, however, maintain this collection because several sites are not as easy to use as this collection's links, and not all websters know about or care to join The Showroom.

The Best Overall Links for Alpine Information

Sunbeam Alpine 1959-68
http://www.team.net/www/rootes/sunbeam/alpine/mk1-5/index.html
      The Best Site on the Web for Alpines. Part of a huge British Cars site. The entries below are just a few of a few dozen. See Rootes Group Automobiles or Scions of Lucas for the BIG picture.

The Classic Sunbeam Alpine Owners Site
http://www.sunbeamalpine.org
      A site that focuses strictly on Alpines and Harringtons, with the best collection of scanned Alpine advertising literature for all Series and the best Alpine-centric descriptions of each Series' features. Each model is described with scanned period photos, and there are pages for Literature, Colour Codes, Registry and Production Data, and is growing. Unfortunately it's frame-based (to no useful end), and therefore pretty much inaccessible except through the front door. Member of the The Sunbeam Auto Showroom web ring.
