1966 Sunbeam Tiger MK1A for sale
1966 Sunbeam Tiger. This fabulous. low-mileage original "Survivor" is offered and displayed elsewhere but I'm more than happy to expose it here as well. No question it's one very special example that has escaped most of what its brothers and sisters have suffered during the last 50 years.
Little of its "originality" has been changed since it and seven siblings rolled from the assembly line on Wednesday. September 29th. 1965. This car still wears its original Carnival Red code 39 paint and all original interior. Just about everything except tires are original. The exhaust. clutch and even spark plug wires are the same ones that it rolled off the factory floor with. The roll bar was hand crafted and installed by the selling dealer back in 1968.
This car was purchased new April 10th 1968 from Colony Imports Limited Inc. and remained with the same owner until I bought it in 2013. Purchase price when new was $3. 00 and after a $1. 00 down payment resulted in a monthly payment of $64. 79 for 35 months. I've got a copy of the original invoice. The creator of the Sunbeam Prototype. George Boskoff of Shebly American. was there when I took delivery of the Tiger. He exclaimed it was the nicest original Tiger he had ever seen. You can see George inspecting the car in some of the pictures.
I've done little to this car other than give it a good polish. The paint isn't perfect but presents well and still shines bright. The brake servo. carb. and clutch slave cylinder were rebuilt but other than that I've just enjoyed it. I've had 300 hp Tigers but this is the most fun of them all. There's nothing like driving a car that is the same as it was intended to be the day it rolled off the factory floor. With just over 45. 00 miles on the odometer the 260 cubic inch engine starts right up and idles perfectly. It shifts through the gears flawlessly. It has a great sound…. not too loud. Whether driving around town or on the freeway you can still hold a conversation. The seats and interior are in great shape too. There is some fading on the carpet but it still looks great. All gauges work including the clock. The trunk contains the original tool roll and the original vent tube is still connected to the battery. The battery is a new modern AGM type and is branded Lucas. Tires are new “correct” bias ply whitewalls. How often do you see a Tiger with the original hubcaps and wheels?
Original “Survivor” Tigers are few and far between. This may be your last chance to own a Tiger that remains as if it rolled off the assembly line yesterday. Feel free to come and take a look at the car in person. 408-593-7375
