Carspotting (21): Sunbeam Alpine Series IV

In a sea of modern cars, this little Sunbeam really looked out of place. At first, I thought this was a Ford-engined Tiger. But upon closer inspection, it turned out to be the more sedate mid-60s Alpine.

I'm conflicted about this specimen. It has definitely not been garaged. Below the gas filler cap on the passenger side, there is a streak running down to the wheel well where excess gasoline has flowed on dozens of occasions. Despite the semi-disheveled state, it almost looks like a daily driver. So overall, I give it a thumbs up.
