THE ASSOCIATION

 

The current steering committee have agreed that the word "Association" best describes our collective group rather than the word "Society" which was previously used. It may take a while for all references to be converted so please be patient with us. The name of the new body is "The International Sunbeam Harrington Association" and the new domain name is "Sunbeamharrington.org".

By owning a Harrington Alpine you automatically become part of an exclusive group of people bound across international borders with a unique common bond. Ownership is a privilege and on-going education is essential to the preservation of the marque. We thank you for helping us with on-going studies and registry submissions. As an owner you share in our quest for knowledge and gain by new friendships linked with these fine automobiles. We need you to be the eyes and ears of this cause by identifying and photographing new Harrington Alpines for the registry, providing copies of letters and literature or sharing stories from days gone by. This information helps us to unlock the clues behind production and lost history of our beloved cars. It is also very important that you help us maintain this registry by reporting when your car changes ownership. Read the rules! RULE No 1; Never call a Harrington "Type", RULE No 2; see Rule No 1.

On a positive note I found the address of the company he used to make the keyring fobs and the gel-coated "Le Mans" emblems. They can also make the emblems in any size and here is an example on my JBW wheel centre caps.

Who are the people behind this web site?

Jan Iggbom has been a driving force behind research and documentation for many years. Many of you have been contacted by Jan as he researches and documents the serial numbers, registration numbers and first registration dates of your cars. He is the "Harrington Detective" as some like to call him and is the major contributor to this web site. He is the proud first owner of a Harrington Le Mans and a Harrington Series D [Note: sadly Jan passed away on January 30th 2022, please note the dedication to Jan on the site homepage]

Ian Spencer is the founder of The Sunbeam Alpine Owners Club of America. Ian has been responsible for the creation and administration of the original website and has worked closely with Jan Iggbom to accurately package this information into an easy to navigate website. [the current website has been migrated across to a simpler scheme so that it can be managed without the need for a licensed web package]
