  • Interior light delay unit fitted
  • Uprated taillight bulbs
  • Radion cassette with Kenwood speakers

The bad bits

  • Needs some paint and bodywork done
  • Needs some new carpets
  • Needs an engine!

The car is currently fitted with a Sport spec. 998cc engine, which is not included in the sale. However, the car does come with its original numbers matching 875cc Sport engine that requires a rebuild due to overheating. So, either rebuild the original unit or put in your own engine!

This car needs to be sold so I will consider any genuine offers, but no insults please as this is a good car that just needs some TLC to make it a great example of the marque.

Chantal (& Ben) Stride's Sunbeam Stiletto with a 998.
Going Dutch 2007 was the first long trip after its engine rebuild - 700 miles in total. They were part of the Sussex AC group, experts and spares, which was fortunate. On the way to Uitdam it needed some sort of adjustment, but it made it there and back again and by the sound of it, it's a lovely Sunbeam.

It has an HE radiator. No overheating problems.
