Light British sports car. powerful American muscle. and refinement made the Tiger all things to all people. Sunbeam Tiger advertising (reading well for the era) toted that it was. "Versatile! Drag it. Race it. Swing with it. " We wont comment on the last portion but the car does the first two things very well. The car was actually a collaboration with Carrol Shelby and the first prototype race car was built by the legend himself. After more work. the first Sunbeam Tiger competed in the SCCA Divisional race at Tuscon in April 1964. The launch of the street version of the Sunbeam Tiger coincided with the race debut. The Tiger was light. small and powerful which ended up making it a little hard to handle on the race track due to over steer. The Tiger sold in very low numbers and after 3 years of production. the Rootes Group was purchased by Chrysler. Chrysler would not sell a car with a Ford engine so the Tiger died with the ownership change.Condition
