|This Sunbeam Rapier IV is one of 9700 produced between 1963 to 1965, one of very few imported privately into Australia and is complete and running. It is being sold with no roadworthy. Mechanically the car is sound with some minor alterations to improve performance, such as gas shockers, mild cam, Alpine headers, Weber 32-36 twin choke carby, radiator overflow recovery system & electric windscreen washers. The car was restored about 1979 (with an overdrive added) & displayed in the 1986 at the Classic car show in the Exhibition Buildings. The Rapier was driven daily from 1986 to 2006 & then put on blocks in a garage. During this time the body deteriated & is showing rust in the usual places.
