|Series IIIa Rapier convertible. This was the last model made as a convertible.|
|Has the look of a Series 2 Tiger, but I was told its actually a Series 1.|
|Rapier, Tiger, Alpine.|
|Series V Rapiers had the 1725cc engine, series IV, the 1592, but very difficult to tell the difference. |
This one is a Series V.
Many exterior mods here, so I wouldn't be surprised if there are some internal ones as well.
|Tiger and Rapier came with steel wheels, but I've haven't seen many Tigers with standard rims.|
Original tyres were 590x13 cross-plies. I guess they could be quite overcome when the 260ci V8 was let loose !
|Series IV Rapier.|
|Two Sunbeam Alpines. This model was only produced from 1953 to '55 with a 2.2 litre ohv four cylinder.|
|One doesn't have to own a Sunbeam to be a member of the Sunbeam club.|
This is a Hillman Minx convertible....
|....and a Mk I Humber Sceptre.|
|The late Rapiers were very smart in their day, but I still prefer the older body style...|
|... like this Series IV (1592cc).....|
|.... or this Series V (1725cc).|
|1953 Sunbeam Alpine, was the first of this model.|
Basically a two door, convertible version of the Sunbeam Talbot saloon.
|Two Hillman Imps and the Minx Convertible.|
|Although this is a Series IV it is in the same colours as my own Series IIIa was.|
|Another view of the Series V shown previously.|
|This Series V is one of the last of this body shape.|
