History of the Sunbeam Tiger

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

Body:  Excellent original condition.   Little rust if any.   Small paint spidering (pictured) and a few minor paint blemishes around top components.   Very straight and correct.   Paint could be refreshed and stay original or restored and completely repainted if desired.   Trunk and engine bay have virtually no rust or holes. paint looks very good.   Underside has no rust holes and looks to be in good condition.

Engine:  Original 260 V8.   Starts right up and idles smoothly.   Has been maintained.   Pulls strong and is a joy to drive.

Transmission:  Clutch and gears all engage well. no syncro issues.  Clutch recently replaced.  Smooth operation no visible leaks.

Convertible Top:  Hard top is in same condition as the body which is very good.   Convertible soft top (original) needs replacing and mechanics needs restoring or replacement.

Interior:  Interior is functional as is and shows its age but it is good shape considering.   Has an "original patina" appeal to it.   Could be enjoyed and vehicle kept original or restored easily.

Sold As Is. no guarantee or warranty.  3rd Party inspection is allowed.  Owner will consider trade or cash.  Local Pickup. buyer can arrange transportation.
