Sunbeams in the news!
We are a small yet dedicated band of enthusiasts who love the Sunbeam marque. We have many social and car-related events during the year, culminating in our Annual General Meeting, which includes a Show ‘n Shine, Concourse ‘de Elegance and social events.
The AGM is held in a different town every year, and is generally run by a different branch each year. There are 5 branches in total; Auckland (and north), Waikato, Manawatu, Wellington and Mainland (all of South Island).
Our spare parts scheme sees hundreds of spare parts still available to keep our beloved classics on the road, as well as many reproduced parts that come from England and the USA. The club also reproduces some of its own parts for export, mainly to the USA, and holds about $60,000 in stock of new parts for all Sunbeam models.
We also hold many, many used parts for Sunbeam cars, and are obtaining more parts regularly. This includes engines, gearboxes, trim – anything that can be salvaged is stored away dry and safe, for potential purchase by club members.
To those wanting to buy new spare parts from the club: please note you must be a member of the Sunbeam Car Club of New Zealand in order to buy new spare parts from us. This is a legal requirement for tax purposes.
