1961 Sunbeam Rapier

£8,500 SOLD

1961 Sunbeam Rapier Series 111A 1600. A very attractive and original example of the most desirable Rapier variant in perhaps the prettiest colour scheme, this car is mechanically excellent and drives particularly well having the benefit of a 28/36 Weber and an all synchro later gearbox. In the current ownership since April 2017 there has been considerable recent expenditure including new seatbelts, new clutch, 4 new Vredestein tires, new front discs and pads and new lower trunnions. New MOT to 18.12.2020. Rapiers were very successful rally cars in period and are idea for historic rallies and tours today, with lively performance. Ready for immediate enjoyment. £8,500
