SUNBEAM RAPIER III/IIIA
2-door sports saloon, convertible.
Minx evolution with front disc brakes, alloy head, close-ratio gearbox, wood dash, and (from September '60) hypoid rear axle. The Mk IIIA (April '61) gets the latest 1.6-litre, 80bhp engine with a better overall performance, though maximum speed still only about 90mph as against 80-85pmh for Mk I. Narrower side-spear identifies III/IIIA from II.
