The Sunbeam motor car company originated in 1899 in Wolverhampton and was to produce vehicles of high quality through the Edwardian and Vintage periods, with many great sporting achievements. Their finest hour being the Land Speed Record set by Sir Henry Seagrave at Daytona Beach in March 1927, with the streamlined 1000 hp car reaching 203.79 mph.

 During the second half of the 1920’s, one of their most popular models was the Sixteen (16.9 hp) which was available between 1926 – 30.

The motor car offered here is of 1929 manufacture, with Drophead Coupe Coachwork by James Young. In very good sound order, having had much money spent on it during the past few years with marque specialist J.C Engineering, the car drives very well and has recently returned from an event in France. A comfortable four seater with very good luggage space in its capacious boot, this car is ideal for long distance events and touring.

The Sunbeam resided for many years in Australia, being repatriated around six years ago. The hood is well fitting and reported to be completely watertight in inclement weather. A slightly higher rear axle ratio makes for relaxed cruising at 50 plus MPH and the car has an easy gear change, unlike many Vintage motor cars.

Ready to go and in pleasantly useable condition, the car has much documentation including numerous receipts for recent work, a copy of the Workshop Manual and Drivers Handbook.
