1966 Sunbeam Rapier Series V 1725cc


The last of the Rootes series of Rapiers before the Chrysler backed Arrow series replaced the entire range. Stately old comfy cruiser with overdrive on 3rd & top. Less than 4,000 of this version were made (the rarest of the Rootes Rapiers). This one cost me £100 & I ran it for 3 years before selling it for £75. Mechanically straightforward, most repairs easily carried out by the hamfisted amateur (me). (I’ll fetch a hammer).
