STOP! Don’t buy a Sunbeam Alpine without first buying this book!

A comprehensive guide to Rootes’ Sunbeam Alpine sportscar of the 1960s. It explains and illustrates all the various models, and what it’s like to own, drive and live with an Alpine.
Help to decide which model you really want, score each aspect to help you make the right decision when comparing cars… and agree the right price!


Rootes’ Sunbeam Alpine sportscar was the flagship of its car range. Here, all the various models and production changes are described and illustrated in detail, along with what it’s like to own, drive and live with an Alpine – one of the best engineered, stylish and practical cars of its time, and still satisfying to drive today.
If you’re thinking of buying an Alpine, this book will help you decide which model you really want, and learn exactly what to look for when you go to view a car. By using a thorough points-based assessment, you can decide with your head – not your heart – so you can better make the right decision, and pay the right price.
Benefit from the author’s forty years’ of Alpine ownership experience and engineering expertise, all in one book!

Independent Reviews

…goes into great detail, which is ideal for existing owners and of course, if you are thinking of buying one at auction, privately or from a specialist.
Total Kit Car

… essential reading for any potential Alpine Buyer and is a welcome addition to the rather limited catalogue of other Alpine publications.
The Alpine Horn

A good-value guide that could be invaluable.
