Approximately 110 Harrington Alpines were produced in 1961 and
were available by placing an order through an authorized Rootes
dealership. The Harrington Alpine was offered with three different
stages of Hartwell engine tune and many optional interior modifications.
Identifying an original Harrington Alpine can be done by looking
at the rear of the car. There you will find a very small hinged
boot lid and a fixed rear window. Based on the Alpine Series
II, Harrington Ltd., fabricated a nifty fiberglass top that neatly
fitted the Alpine body. A new rear bulkhead was fabricated to
mount the rear portion of the top, as well as the shortened boot
lid. These modifications made the Harrington Alpine a true conversion
and once this process was completed the car could not be changed
back to a convertible sports car.
