Of the few that did sell, most were scrapped after they outlived their usefulness. The few I've seen for sale in recent years were basket cases that usually needed a full restoration.
Looking at this car makes you realize just how nice looking it is. If you squint, the front end resembles a Jensen Interceptor. The body has some nice styling touches such as the little kick up by the rear side windows and the sharp fold on the trunk lid. The only letdown in the design is the huge amount of rear overhang, which may be due in part to the car's Hillman Hunter station wagon underpinnings.
While the Alpine GT looked nice, it's performance was underwhelming. The engine was Rootes tried and true 1725cc 4, which is durable and fairly smooth, but took almost 15 seconds to propel the car to 60 MPH.
This car has been restored, but it's not perfect. The wood veneer on the dash needs to be redone and there are a few chips in the windshield. All-in-all though, this is a very presentable car.
This is a car you buy for its uniqueness. As the seller writes, "This car stands out where ever it is and you WILL be the only one with an Alpine fastback at any event you go to." I can't agree more. The last time I saw an Alpine GT in person was at an all Sunbeam event back in the 1980s. The owner, a Sunbeam guru known as "Tiger Tom", had dropped a Mazda rotary engine in it. I have never seen a stock Alpine GT at any show, anywhere.
This is another one of those cars that if I had unlimited money and storage space, I'd buy in a minute.
