1914 Tourist Trophy Sunbeams: (4 cylinders, 3.3 litres, 4 valves per cylinder, twin overhead camshafts, 94bhp@3000rpm). The only one with its original colour is the purple one, as this was the British racing colour for the 1914 TT. Photos: Mark Ballard
Mike Scott’s replica police Imp is an occasional exhibit at the Grampian Transport Museum (see previous post), but wasn’t on display at the time of my visit.
I wanted to take this one home. What you can’t tell from the photograph is that it’s a pick-up!
Thanks to Mike Scott for taking these photographs – I forgot my camera!

Cutaway of the 1000hp Sunbeam. I’m unsure of the original source of this drawing, although it looks as though it may have come from an issue of The Autocar or The Motor.
Thanks to Real Bosse in Canada for this photo of the?1000hp Sunbeam?record car on Daytona Beach.
Allen Cox in Australia is restoring this pre-WWI Sunbeam. The last photo shows it earlier in its life operating as a taxi in Bundaberg. Photos: Allen Cox
