For Sale -Superbeam! Chrysler Sunbeam Rally Car

Post  TRR Motorsport on Tue Jan 20, 2009 1:39 pm

1978 Chrysler Sunbeam Rally Car.

An edition to the family forces reluctant sale of my beloved Superbeam.

The car it turnkey ready for the 2009 season, 12 months MOT, current MSA logbook. Well built, simple and totally 100% reliable on events.

A competitive car on single and multi venue events. Notable results 1st in class, 2nd in class and 8th O/A (the driver is the handicap!) The car is class 3 but will out run and out brake most class 4 cars (2lts 4WD) on an open stage such as an airfield!

Many thousands spent (receipts to prove costs and spec)

Interested? Call James on 07501 680215

I might yet change my mind but the capital it would free up could help out right now.


Minislapper, The old girl is on a few forums at the moment but i gave up with the British Rally Forum a couple of years ago. There are some good guys on there but it's mostly muppets that seam happy to offer an opinion on subjects they have no knowledge about. How can you comment on the condition of stages of errors in road timing if you didn't compete on the event? scratch

If I were you James I'd keep The Rally Beam in the current climate, it's a classic so its value will only go up (in the long term)....... Sell the Golf instead. Smile
