1965 Sunbeam Tiger for sale

Current customer rating: current rating for this car(2.5) based on 613 votes

I am selling my 1965 Sunbeam Tiger. The car has always started and never any electrical or battery problems. My car sounds Fantastic. The 289 engine I believe has a mild cam and has a very nice idle.  This car has 4 wheel disc brakes and a power brake booster. I personally like the color and the sound. The body is clean and the underneath is clean also with very little or no rust on the frame and body. The convertible top and interior is in fairly good condition. It is fairly easy and quick to raise and lower the convertible top. All the instruments. lights. and emergency brake are in working order. The car has the original linkage and it may be a little warn but I can shift it with no problem and I like the original look of the Lift Up for reverse. I have seen the Hurst Linkage and the look is not right for me.  Please feel free to call me with any questions. I feel I have made the price reasonable because it is time for me to sell my car. The car is good but the car is not a perfect 2014 model and being almost 50 years old this car comes without a guarantee or warrantee. The engine does not smoke and has never overheated when I have driven the car in warm weather. I very much welcome any personal inspection. Douglas 310-430-2221
