Sunbeam goes to Woodstock

This photo was clipped from the evening news on the 40th anniversary of Woodstock. What a story could be told about this adventure. I would sure like to locate the owner of this car.

N1 – Hood Release Improved with Older Parts

Those of you who have the “bicycle brake cable” style of hood latch release, may have looked in envy at the “solid rod” type releases on earlier Sunbeams. I know that I was always concerned that the cable might fail and leave me with the prospect of cutting metal to open the hood.

N2 – Rotissery for Sunbeam Alpine or Tiger

The “Rotisserie” described in this article, was spotted by my son, with an Alpine hanging in it upside down.

N5 – Fender Well Cooling Ports

All of the engine cooling aids such as aluminum intake manifolds, header pipes and extra large radiators depend upon dumping their heat into the engine compartment. What’s needed is an under hood cooling system to remove this heat build-up when there is insufficient road speed to pull the hot air out of the bottom of the engine compartment.

N6 – Improved Cooling for Snarled Tigers

The stock Tiger hood latch is set up with a “safety catch” which holds the hood after the striker bolt has released. It has always seemed that when the Tiger was in hot weather, it would run a little cooler with the hood “propped open” in the safety position. This is especially true at slow speeds when the hot air gets trapped in the engine compartment.

N7 – “Powered by Ford” Badge Replacement

Replacing the “Powered By Ford” badges (motifs) adds a nice touch and is rather straightforward.

The shield-shaped badges can be purchased from one of the SUNBEAM parts suppliers. It takes three to complete the car.
