1960 Sunbeam Rapier III

This very well presented Sunbeam Rapier Series III has come to us from one of our South Yorkshire based regular customers. 270 KKX is an ideal every day classic and over recent months has been in fairly regular use. This nicely aged and honest example is equipped with factory fitted overdrive on 3rd and 4th gear and appears to be factory standard.

This lovely pillarless sports coupe was taken off the road in 2006 and in 2014/2015 was subject of some re-commissioning work and light restoration carried out by a Dewsbury based Sunbeam specialist and enthusiast. The car drives incredibly well with the strong fit engine holding excellent oil pressure and the overdrive kicking smoothly in third and fourth gear.  The Sunbeam has passed the last two MOTS' with no advisories and is ready to jump in and drive.

270 KKX presents well with clean paintwork, bright chrome and the interior has beautifully aged and benefits from a new carpet set. Whilst its clear the car has had a good level of restoration work carried out, it does appear to be a very original, correct car that will suit the show scene or regular use.
