The Sunbeam Rapier Owners Club was formed in June 1979 by Hampshire based David Parrott, who owned a Series 111A at the time. The ethos being to promote and preserve the entire surviving marque and from humble beginnings with 22 founding members, the Club has grown in the past 40 or so years.
Catering for all Sunbeam Rapiers from 1955 – 1967 when they were known as ‘Series’ cars (1 – V during the production run) as well as the later models introduced in 1967 and produced until 1976; known as the ‘Fastback’. These latter models included variants called H120 (introduced in 1968) and Alpine Coupe (introduced in 1969). The Club now has around 300 members, most with cars, but some without – it is not necessary to own one to be a member.
The Club is active and is usually present throughout the year at local shows around the country. A National Rally is often held each tear too. We are always happy to welcome new members and do our best to provide support with technical knowledge and spare parts, so if you are not a member do consider joining us and those who already are; thank you for your continued support.
