Boas companheiros,
Este modelo dos anos 70, desapareceu a olhos vistos. Ha alguem por ai com algum? Gostava de ter fotos deste carro.

Sunbeam Stiletto

October 1967 - mid 1972

The Sunbeam Stiletto is considered by many to be the most desirable, certainly the most sought after, Imp model. It's name probably has something to do with the existing Sunbeam Rapier, shrink a rapier and it becomes a stiletto (medieval dagger with a very slim blade, elegant and wicked).
It combined the sleek coupé lines of the Californian and the engine of the Imp Sport. The Stiletto had four headlights as standard, along with a vinyl roof (always black Leathercloth). The dashboard is the most noticeable difference with the interior. This large, black, moulded piece of engineering (peculiar only to this model) featured novel ideas such as warning lights which can be dipped for night time driving.
All Stiletto finishes have white twin coachlines - except Polar White, which has twin red.
Stiletto models only had wheels paint black. They had the Sunbeam stainless steel wheel trims as standard.
The differences between the two types
'Rootes' Stiletto 'Chrysler' Stiletto
production year Oct. 1967 - 1968 1969 - summer 1972
chassis no. 301 series 302 series
sill a stainless steel strip fitted along the top of the
full length of sill, just below the bottom of door line.
door skin on using a door skin for a later model, the position
of the handle needs to be moved forwards The door handle is positioned 1/2in. further back.
door locks can't use a 302 door with a 301 post (or vice versa) since the door lock is totally different '69 doorlock is more anti-burst proof (supposedly)
seats squarer shaped seats of different 'Amblair' pattern
heater housing metal plastic
steering lock A steering lock was added in 1971.
Hence different wiring loom.
wheel trim The width (depth) of the rim was reduced by 1/4" from 1971 (1970 ?) on.
production no.s 4,735 ± 3,378

:DD

nem me deixam respirar! :D

Estava a colocar as últimas fotos e o computador ficou a " ruminar " ...

Reiniciei...

E só depois reparei no Datsun!:DD:D

Seleccionei a foto sem querer...

E foi uma simples pesquisa! Nada de especial! :DD

Era um site que tinha desde que o Vitor Dinis comprou o seu Imp!

Abraço
