Default Alpine project for sale in Arkansas

passing on an email. If anyone is interested I can connect you. Do we have anyone in the area who might check it out and help Bud?

--------------------------------------
My brother, who lived in Rogers, Arkansas, was in the process of restoring a Sunbeam Alpine from the mid-1960s when he sadly passed away. This was a labor of love. He had the body in perfect condition and all the parts ready to assemble. He has a complete documented history of the vehicle and all the stages of its restoration. This is now part of the estate that I am charged to deal with. I would very much like an enthusiast who would treasure the car as much as my brother did to buy the car and complete his work. I wondered if you could offer any thoughts or advice about the best way I might go about doing this?

Sincerely,

Marion “Bud” Coker

Michael, It looks like a SIV -V body to me.

Can't see the rear area enough to determine ?

Believe you are right! I could not get a clear picture of the doors. Revisited the PIC and they do look square.

P.S. If that Alpine was a bit closer I might have to attempt to make a deal....

Bud said someone may be interested. Not sure if it's a forum member or not.

He's looking for advice on pricing. I know it's hard without seeing all the details. For me a good solid body is worth more than a rusty project with good mechanical bits. But it is an incomplete non-running car.


from Bud:

As we've been clearing out his house we have pretty much found everything that belongs to the car. He definitely did his research and was looking forward to restoring it back to it's former glory. He was definitely in the stages of putting it all back together. We have someone who is possibly interested in buying it. I was wondering if you or someone on the forum could give us and idea of what to ask for it.
