With the sale of the Rootes Group Sunbeam Alpine positioned as a fine touring automobile. Southern California Sunbeam-Talbot sales manager. Ian Garrad. needed to offer a product more suited for sports car enthusiasts often visiting their showrooms. Efforts to build a car that could attract these young. performance minded individuals went to successful design and performance team. Shelby American! It was already well known that they could shoe-horn V8 horsepower into just about anything you asked them to. so the Ford 260ci V8 was selected for its size and ample power output. It was tucked into the small English chassis with only a “few” refinements to the engine bay and firewall. and a “baby Cobra” was born with the official name. Sunbeam Tiger! The Mark IA. a revised vision of the original. was produced from August 1965 through February 1966 with production totaling just 2. 06 units.

Finished in correct Carnival Red (code 39) over black interior. this stunning 1966 Sunbeam Tiger is in remarkable condition!

It has survived remarkably well with just three former owners. with the most recent caring for this example since April 1992. He managed to add just 3. 13 miles to the car during his 22 years of ownership! Admittedly. he spent the better part of 9 years restoring the car between the years of 1992-2001.
