Alpine Cars from Sunbeam, Chrysler and Renault
The first Sunbeam Alpine was created as a special by dealer George Hartwell and produced as a version of the Sunbeam-Talbot 90 by Thrupp & Maberly coachbuilders from 1953 to 1955. From 1956 Rootes worked on the next generation of Sunbeam Alpine based on a shortened Hillman Husky floorpan. The body was designed by Ken Howes who may have been inspired to give the Rootes car Ford Thunderbird looks from his time at Ford. Production started in 1959 and ended in 1968. From 1969-75 a cheaper version of the fastback Sunbeam Rapier was launched as the new Sunbeam Alpine. In 1975 new owners Chrysler launched a British version of the Chrysler-Simca 1307/08 named the Chrysler Alpine.
