Sunbeam first made bicycles, then motorcycles and cars from the late 19th century to circa 1936, and applied the marque to all three forms of transportation. Sunbeam''s early history is founded on competition success and their early products benefited enormously from this, displaying far more sporting characteristics than many of their rivals. For example a Sunbeam was the first British car to win a Grand Prix race, and set a number of land speed records.

Manufactured in 1921 this 4 speed Tourer is finished in blue with brown leather seats and a black roof, is described as being in very good condition.
