Not that kind of fantasy you perv, a wild project that would be so cool when done.

I want to buy a Sunbeam Alpine GT


Kind of looks like a 3/4 scale Plymouth Barracuda doesn’t it?

Then I want to get a Daimler 2.5 liter hemi V8

Marry the two together, with maybe a small Holley or Carter carb to replace the SUs for a more American look.

Replace the Sunbeam and Alpine badges with Plymouth Barracuda and 2.5 Hemi badges.


Drive to cars and coffee and say it is a rare Mopar protype in response to the gas crisis, or import fighter, plus basically drive around and have a blast in it. Doubt it will ever happen, the parts (mostly overseas) and energy (mine) might be a little hard to find.

Anybody else have any wild bench engineering they would like to share?
