About the object

chassis no. 5159L, engine no. 5158L \n\n- One \n\n-off, made on a Sunbeam 16 HP. \n\n- Boat \n\n-Tail Coachwork. \n\n- Rady for vintage racing. \n\n- Interion in excellent condition. \n\n- Restored in UK in 2004. \n\nFunded by John Marston in 1888, Sunbeam was a British company. They started producing bicycles but in 1902 they made their first car, the Sunbeam 10/12, with the chassis purchased by French Berliet concern. From 1907, two years after the Sunbeam Motor Ca Company had been formed, the firm produced their first all-British model: the Sunbeam 16/20 HP. After WWI, the civilian production recommenced in 1919 with 16HP and 24HP models. Our car was originally a Sunbeam 16 HP from 1930, purchased new in Britain. In 1971 was exported to Singapore, were the actual Boat-Tail coachwork was installed, most likely for competition. In 2004 the car was completely restored and arrived in Italy. In 2011, after a further car inspection, was purchased by the actual collector. Today the car is in excellent condition: the wood on the tail is in good condition as is the bodywork. The interior in Bordeaux leather, is in excellent condition as is the strumentations. The engine and mechanics also appear to be in perfect condition. The car is ideal for participating in concours d?elegance, due to its unique boat-tail bodywork, but also for regularity races.
