The Sunbeam Company was started in England in 1888. At first the company made bicycles and then advanced into motorcycles and cars. They also built some airplanes for the World War I effort.
The first car produced by Sunbeam was the Mabley. It looked different then other cars in that it had a belt driven engine separating the seats. Sunbeam managed to sell about 420 of them but didn't do really well. After that there was a Thomas Pullinger designed car and it didn't do very well either.

The Sunbeam company finally turned around in 1909 when a new car designer, Louis Coatalen, reorganized production to insure that all the auto parts were built by Sunbeam instead of outsourcing them. Then he designed the Sunbeam 14/20 which had a shaft driven rear axle making it a better quality automobile. It wasn't to long before Sunbeam was competing with Rolls Royce in high quality vehicles.
Sunbeam then started to get into racecars, which improved performance of their streetcars. The first race build built was the Sunbeam Nautilus. Unfortunately it wasn't successful. However the next racecar built was the Sunbeam Toodles ll, which did much better and won many prizes for the company.

Dear Sunbeam Fans,
I am writing to you in behalf of your Heavenly Father. He is seeking you like a lost sheep. You remember the Bible story? It is about a shepherd who has 100 sheep. But when he brings the sheep home one night, one is missing. He then leaves the 99 sheep and goes out into the wilderness until he finds that lost sheep.
In this parable the shepherd goes out to search for the one lost sheep-the very least that can be numbered. So if there had been but one lost soul, Christ would have died for that one. To read more click Lost Sheep
