1931 Sunbeam 18.2hp 2.3 litre Drop Head Coupe.

Chassis number: 5919M

Registration Number: GP8268

Under the current ownership for the last 15 years, this Sunbeam has had major works undertaken to it during that time.  Th engine is a long legged 6 cylinder unit that was rebuilt in 2003 by Marque Specialist Bill Barrot.  As a result it runs beautifully pulling strongly in all gears & well able to run in modern traffic conditions.

The body takes the form of a 2 door drop head coupe with dickey allowing for carriage of 4 people.  In 2012/13 the car had a full repaint in British Racing Green over black.  At the same time to address structural issues, the body panels were removed & new ash framing let in where needed; a major job performed by by David Brown Vintage & Classic Restorations Ltd.

In 2014 the interior was redone with new hides throughout in dark olive green allied to sage green carpets making for a lovely & period looking interior.  The original wood dash is extant & fitted with its full quota of instrumentation.  The car sits on wire wheels that are shod with 4 excellent tyres.  A black mohair hood easily erects for inclement conditions.

To sum up, this is an enthusiast owned car that wants for nothing & has had major expendiutre performed upon it during the last ownership.  These early Sunbeams are absolute quality cars, ranking close to Rolls & Bentley in build quality.  They are rare, beautiful & superb to drive.
