No matter what, American auto enthusiasts will always know the Sunbeam
Tiger as "that car from Get Smart". While a stock 1965 Sunbeam Tiger may
have been Maxwell Smart's ride of choice, the boys at KAOS probably tooled
around in something closer to this 1967 model. While it still resembles a
garden variety Tiger, the similarities end there.
Appeal starts on the outside where an even coat of Torch Red graces the
familiar Tiger lines. Super Sport-style stripes run from nose to tail,
accenting the base coat in a shade of silver borrowed from the BMW paint
charts. The paint work is impressive but a lot of the initial "wow" factor
can be attributed to the laser straight sheet metal below. Deleted bumpers,
HID headlights, a custom hood, and a taut tan canvas top finish the
exterior with style.
What makes a nimble 2,500 lb convertible even more fun? Why, 449 rear-wheel
course! The source of that power is a Ford 427ci Windsor V8 bolted together
by the crew at Paul Anthony Race Engines. The parts list includes
high-quality internals paired with big pieces like AFR 225 heads, a
customized Trick Flow intake, and Electromotive fuel injection. Thanks to
10.7:1 compression, the car runs on premium pump gas and makes itself known
through long tube headers that flow into a side-exit Exhaust with glasspack-style mufflers.
The foundation is a custom 2x3 tube chassis in a fresh coat of red paint.
Up front, a Chassis Works Mustang II-style front suspension
incorporates chrome control arms and VariShock coilovers while a custom
ladder bar setup with Moroso coilovers keep the rear in place. Steering is
provided by a manual rack and pinion while massive Wilwood brakes provide
the stopping power. In the center of that hardware, a Tremec T56 6-speed
prepared by Rockland Standard Gear spins power back to a narrowed Ford
9-inch with a Detroit locker and 3.50 gears. Seventeen-inch Vintage Wheel
Works 8-spokes connect the chassis to the road.
As you might expect, the interior is compact and mostly business. A pair of
bucket seats provide seating for two while a 5-point roll cage, Simpson
harnesses, and Auto Meter gauges round out the space. There is a functional
trunk though most of it is occupied by a the 20-gallon fuel tank nestled
between the frame rails.
This '67 Sunbeam Tiger is an absolutely brutal car certainly not intended
for the faint of heart. With its stout 427 and obvious focus on speed, it's
the kind of car that not only turns heads but gets you instant respect just
for having the guts to drive it on public roads. If you're looking for a
compact thrill generator guaranteed to steal the show wherever it goes,
