Sunbeam Tiger 1966 Hot Little Ford 260 V8 Power Makes BIG Shelby Style Excitement
Yes a REAL TIGER and listed in the Tiger registry. One owner the last 20+ years. He has not driven it much, just when time and the right occasion came up to take off and enjoy! Owned by a precision machinist/fabricator, he knew how to care for the car and you can see it is a very nicely preserved original Tiger. YES there are some non-original pieces, so all you Tiger aficionados can go ahead and name them if you like. But it still does not matter, the car is real and is a small little Super Car, Just as the original folks at Shelby American intended. Yep, I said Shelby American, you can read about the development history online. Yes, the original steering wheel and horn ring was removed and put in a box. The original steering wheel is just a little to big for a driver over 6'2" wearing a size 14 shoe. So the smaller Nardi wheel clears up that problem. The front brakes have been upgraded, but all the stock parts are in the box put away. Yes, it needs a new convertible top cover, but the frame is in super condition. It has never had a hardtop, but it did have a zippered tonneau cover at one time. By the way, I have now seen photos of three Tigers with this battery box position.
