Default Series V wanted

I just missed out on car and I appreciate the members on here pointing out some details on it and educating me on my soon to be our first Sunbeam. I want to buy a Series V and my budget is 5-7k. I am looking for the best car for the money, it must be a driver and the preferred color is green. I'm patient so I will wait for the right car to pop up and small mechanical fixes are fine as long as its roadworthy. I am in Twentynine Palms, Ca and I will drive/fly for the right car.

Default Series V wanted

We have a guy in Phoenix selling 3 Alpines b/c he needs to move and can't take them with him. Send me a pm with your email address and I will forward his email with photos and description of the cars. His prices seem to be reasonable, even bargains if his cars are what he says they are...........Cactusmasher

That was the 1967 I was going to buy Thursday, he had a buyer from England put down a deposit for all 3 last night. So I'm off hunting again.

I don't think you ever said it but how much was the Alpine you were interested in?

He was asking 6k which was a tad high in my opinion but it looked like a great start as long as we could get it fired up. It hadn't run in 7 years.

Your car is in Granby Connecticut.

A green series V $6200.

I know nothing about it other than what the ad reads. I live in Oregon -- do not know the owner, the car and have no interest in the sale. Craigslist.

Good hunting-- hope this helps

I am a compulsive nationwide Craig's list watcher

Think he is looking for a Series V.
I saw that III and boy, it needs a lot of work and many of the original features are missing. I think it's over priced for a non-runner.

The ad reads "1966 series V."

Are we looking at the same ad? Craigslist Hartford, Conn-- "sunbeam" in the box should get you to what I am looking at.

My bad, I was looking at the one in Sun City. Very modified Series III.
