You are bidding on a lifetime accumulation of Sunbeam parts and my 1965 Tiger. Of all the Sunbeams I have bought and sold. owned and restored THIS is my "lady"! I found this "mess of a car" in 1994 by answering an ad titled "English parts car for sale". The seller's wife did not know much about the car except that after a decade she wanted it out of her yard! The owner had bought it for parts to complete an Alpine he had since sold. He said "its a real mess" and when he removed the tarp I was amazed that it was a TIGER!!  The engine was gone. he engine compartment was pretty-much stripped. the front-end was damaged. the wooden dash was broken but most of the gauges were still in-place. Lots of engine parts were stashed in the trunk. The soft top was missing but other that the front-end the body looked straight and rust-free.    One of the items in the trunk was an original chrome valve cover set. The numbers on the decal as well as the tranny and differential numbers allowed Norm Miller to ID the car thru the Tiger Registry as a MK1A. I used parts from a Series IV to replace the damaged front. stripped and sandblasted the body. crafted a new wooden dash. and bought a nice 302 to connected to the original drive-train. WHAT A SWEET RIDE!!!  After several years of enjoyment the old 4-speed let go and I have bought a tested T5. new flywheel and associated gear to replace it.  
Unfortunately. age has dealt me a bad hand and my health has taken a turn for the worse.  I no longer have the time or energy to complete the conversion.  It is for sale with 14 "totes" of Alpine and Tiger parts as pictured. some rare and coveted!  They can be resold for a handsome sum! Two hardtops come with the car. a white fiberglass top and a factory steel top; both need work but I have the new glass and hardware to complete both tops. A new tonneau. a used tonneau and a new beige soft-top are included. I also have an unfinished section of Honduran Mahogany to craft a new dash if wanted.
The buyer is responsible for vehicle pickup or shipping but. if wanted. I can also sell you a 20 ft car-hauler with winch for $1200. to carry your "booty" back home.  Please see my facebook page (woody wooldridge) for complete pictures and description of what is included with the Tiger.
