Restore a Tiger. Build an Alger. Part it out.   1965 Sunbeam Tiger and 1967 Sunbeam Alpine.   Tiger was in an accident and front end was wrecked.   This is a major project to restore the Tiger but if you know anything about these cars you know the values are way up in recent years.   Tigers are selling from $50. 00 to over $100. 00 so it would be worth the effort.

Sunbeam Tiger's were a marriage of a Sunbeam Alpine Body (from England) and a Ford V8.  The original prototyping for this was done by Carroll Shelby. father of the Cobra. a similar British-American combination.  These cars are rare beautiful when restored and have monster performance with the V8 in a small British Car

A Sunbeam Alpine is included and appears to have everything except the original 4 Cylinder Alpine Engine.   I believe most of that parts for both cars are included.   See pictures for what comes with the sale.   The Tiger drive-train is all there but the engine needs a rebuild and the bell housing on the transmission needs to be replaced.   There is a rebuild kit for the top-loader transmission included.   The Tiger V8 260 engine would need a rebuild and the intake manifold has a crack and would need to be welded or replaced.   There is also a chunk of the block that is broken off near where it connects to the bell housing.   My understanding from researching this is it can be cold-welded and repaired.  

I don't know a lot about the history of these two cars.   I bought them as a combined project but just don't have the time to take on such a large restoration / build.   The Alpine has a clear. open New Jersey title.   The Tiger has a New Jersey Salvage title.   I can provide a notarized bill of sale and help with any other documentation needed.

Please feel free to ask any questions.   I can be reached at 859-433-0631 or send me a message through eBay.  Buyer responsible for pick-up.  I can help with loading.
