Sunbeam, now part of the Rootes organisation, first announced its Alpine sports model in 1959. The new model was a change of direction for Sunbeam, previous models were larger touring cars, this model was aimed at the younger MG/Triumph TR market. Throughout its production life the model was continuously developed and improved, production finally finished in 1968.
The Alpine II had an improved engine which produced more power thanks to its increased capacity of 1592cc. The suspension was also improved to give the Alpine an improved ride.
