If you are looking for European looks but American V-8 power, look no further as DreamCarXchange is thrilled to offer fully restored Sunbeam Tiger. This is the last of the “Mark I” Tigers, which were produced from 1964-1967. This 1967 Tiger is finished in Black over tan leather interior. According to the selling dealer, the car received a full “rotisserie” restoration approximately 10 years ago. The odometer shows 74,245 miles. This Sunbeam Tiger includes a Sunbeam Tiger Owners Association Certificate of Authenticity, as well as full photo documentation of the restoration done by a marque specialist in California and is being sold with a clean New Jersey title.
The Sunbeam Tiger was a development of the Sunbeam Alpine Series 1, which was introduced in 1959 by the British manufacturer Rootes. They realized that the Alpine needed more power if it was to compete successfully in world markets, but lacked a suitable engine and the resources to develop one. Eventually, this resulted in a collaboration with Carroll Shelby and the use of a lightweight Ford V-8 engine. This resulted in the Tiger having twice the power of the Alpine, while only weighing 20% more.
All Series I Tigers were equipped with a 260 cubic inch (4.3 liter) single two-barrel carbureted V-8 that produced 164 hp @ 4400 rpm mated to a Ford 4-speed manual transmission, resulting in a quoted 0-60 time of 8.6 seconds and a top speed of 120 mph.
The interior of this Tiger is finished in tan leather interior with matching Tourneau cover, black dashboard and door caps and wood steering wheels and trim.
This example went through full restoration approximately 10 years ago. A full set of records and pictures of the work performed during the restoration are available. The seller states the car drives and cosmetically in outstanding condition.
Make sure you check out the additional pictures found in the “Pictures” tab above. The selling dealer is charging $0.00 for documentation or other fees. Good luck bidding!
The Sunbeam Tiger is a collaboration between the Rootes Group and Carroll Shelby. While the Roots group was known for small sedans and soft sports cars, Carroll Shelby was muscling out big V8's and highly renowned racing cars. At the time, Rootes was building the Sunbeam Alpine, but was looking for a more exciting and appealing car for the blossoming American youth and performance sports car market. With a British body and American engine and driveline, Carroll Shelby's Cobra was the inspiration behind the Sunbeam Tiger. Two prototype cars were built using Shelby motors and driveline components with Sunbeam Alpine shells. Lorde Roots test drove the cars and immediately approved the project with Jensen Motors in England assembling the cars. The Tiger used a 164 horsepower version of Fords 260-ci small block engine. The combination of light weight and more power from a V8 equalled performance that far exceeded that of the Alpine. This Sunbeam Tiger in particular is a California car that has been restored to perfection. The car is a numbers matching example complete with included documents. It is believed to be one of only four Sunbeam Tigers finished in black with a tan leather interior. This Sunbeam Tiger includes a Sunbeam Tiger Owners Association Certificate of Authenticity, as well as full photo documentation of the restoration done by a marque specialist in California.
