Sunbeam Alpine V8-Powered Classic Restomod Revival

The 1966 Shelby Cobra 427 stands as a coveted classic, often commanding six to seven-figure price tags for pristine, original examples. However, for those seeking a fusion of British chassis finesse with American V8 power, alternatives exist.

Enter the 1966 Sunbeam Alpine, albeit transformed with a Ford 302 V8 engine. While not reaching the potency of its Cobra counterpart, this custom Sunbeam channels the spirit of the original Shelby Cobra 289 in terms of performance.

Originally equipped with a modest 1,725 cc four-cylinder engine, the Series V Alpine now houses the potent Ford 302 V8, capable of delivering upwards of 340 horsepower in stock form. Enhanced with an Edelbrock intake manifold and Holley performance carburetor, this powerplant promises exhilarating driving experiences.

Mated to a Tremec T5 five-speed manual transmission and equipped with modern suspension components and disc brakes, the Sunbeam Alpine offers a compelling driving package akin to a budget-friendly AC Cobra.

With prices starting at $139,900 yuan ($19,700), it presents an enticing proposition for enthusiasts seeking an authentic Cobra-like experience without breaking the bank.
