Sunbeam overview
Sunbeam was formed in 1905 by John Marston and during the vintage period produced powerful sporting cars and in 1927 a car built by Sunbeam exceeded 200 mph to claim the land speed record. Sunbeam was acquired by the Rootes brothers and the name used by them for their Sunbeam-Talbot cars. These cars were run in competition, in particular in the Alpine Rally, and, when a two-seater version was announced it was called the Sunbeam Alpine. From that point on all the cars were called Sunbeam, the saloons becoming the Rapier which was built until 1967. There was a new Sunbeam Alpine in 1959 with 'chassis-less' construction and tail fins to suit the American market. In parallel Harringtons built a GT version for Rootes and one of these won the Index of Thermal Efficiency at Le Mans in 1961. Wishing to expand production the British government talked Rootes into expanding to Linwood, Scotland where they built the Hillman Imp and Sunbeam versions of the same car, but this was a fiasco. Rootes went into the red and the business was sold to Chrysler in 1964/1967. The Alpine was restyled as the Series IV, and also fitted with a V8 engine to become the Tiger principally for the American market. The Sunbeam name was last used on the Stiletto, a version of the Imp in 1976.

Over the years Lucas and others supplied parts for Sunbeams, many of them being parts common to cars being built by other manufacturers. We stock and supply many of these items, to find them look under the appropriate heading. Included are a number of parts specific to Sunbeam. These specific parts and books are listed below:

If you are running a Sunbeam or are involved in restoration of Sunbeams we hope you will find this website useful. It should be noted that we also offer to the Sunbeam owner rear view mirrors, sun visors, clothing, oils and other consumables. Enjoy your motoring!
