Condition & Features

Vehicle to be offered for Auction sale August 18 – 20th, at Russo and Steele\’s 11th Annual \”Sports & Muscle at The Marriott\” in Downtown Monterey, California. Please contact us for more information. The Sunbeam Tiger is one of the remarkable Anglo-American “hybrid” built cars that were created in the 1960s. Winning Races meant increased showroom sales, hence higher horsepower engines in lightweight cars was the formula for success. English Rootes Group’s US west coast manager Ian Garrard is credited for realizing the potential of the Sunbeam Alpine. Conversations with Doane Spencer and Ken Miles, who was Shelby’s chief development engineer and test driver, led to a measurement session at Shelby’s workshop in Venice, CA. The compact, lightweight, and potent Ford small-block V8 was already a huge success with Shelby’s AC Cobra so $10,000 in advertising funds were procured to commission Carroll Shelby to build a prototype Sunbeam Alpine using the Ford V8. Rootes Group eventually produced just over 7000 Sunbeam Tigers, spanning 1964-1967. The Sunbeam Tiger offered here is one of 2706 built in the 1966 production year. The Tiger is officially a MK1, yet is more commonly known as the MK1A. The MK1A has the GT styled pebble-grain interior that includes a convertible top and tonneau cover. The English Walnut Veneer dash is complete with Jaeger gauges. The exterior is finished in Arctic White (code 92) correct and original for this Tiger. TAC authentication certificate and sticker issued from STOA are included. The Tiger is real! The Tiger has near 0 miles on a meticulous rotisserie restoration from an award winning Sunbeam builder. The stock appearance of the entire Tiger has been carefully retained, yet the Ford V8 has been caressed to 250 HP and Ford top loader 4-speed transmission is upgraded to wide-ratio gears. Rear differential is the Salisbury Dana 44, also correct for the Tiger. Additional stock appearance “hidden” upgrades included in the restorat
