1969 Sunbeam Alpine Review
Unique, Sporty Sixties Car — Nobody can figure out what it is at a car show! Has Chrysler Pentastar, but nameplate only appears on trunk lid. Good performance for 95 HP and good gas mileage-but requires premium fuel. Looks like a miniature '69 Barracuda. Handling is very good and it can be a joy to drive on winding roads, especially with the 4 speed manual.
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
Pros: Really good looking for the era. Good gas mileage and reasonable performance.
Cons: Hard to get parts for, engine gets noisy at higher speeds.
