Alpines of the Sports Tourer variety were imported to France and indeed they come over to UK for our Club events. Rootes , later Chrysler, was the manufacturer. I did see one advertised in "06" last year. You may get help from the French owner's club - I think email at sunbeamclubfrance@free.fr

Would be interested to hear how you get on - I have a Series 2 Alpine of 1960 here in Scotland

I used to own an Alpine so I'd be quite aware of them and I don't recall having seen one here,  but I have seen a Sunbeam Tiger in the Var - however it might have had UK plates therefore it wouldn't have been officially imported.

I'd guess that due to the age and scarcity of the car, you might be setting yourself a mammoth task.  Classic Cars in Valbonne would probably be able to tell you whether there are any round here - if there are, they'd almost certainly know.

Good luck
