    Dear Mark,
    The 24/70 was the 1924 “flagship” model for Sunbeam at that time ranking alongside British top car marques such as Bentley,Rolls Royce and Vauxhall.
    In fact engineering- wise probably better since they benefitted from WW1 aero technology and the others were still basic Edwardian designs.
    Only 102 were made of which I understand only 4 survive.
    The coachwork options were the same for all these marques.
    The other marques command prices of

    I am fortunate in owning a Sunbeam 24/70. The registration number is XR 2831, Chassis number 7003D To add to this beautiful car it has its original four seat, light sports tourer body. For several reasons I rate it higher than a Silver Ghost, so therefore it must be the finest car of the period. I have a great interest in collating the history of vintage cars and would be grateful if anyone has information on its life, especially before the late fifties and before it was sold by a dealer in Salisbury, UK for £100 would make contact.
