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.

134380 / 1967 Sunbeam Tiger
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/m6vwvbf 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 horsepower of 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.

1967 Sunbeam Tiger Convertible - Built 347 Ford V8 - Hot Rod Sports Car
I thought you'd like a look at this cool little 1967 Sunbeam Tiger, that is packing a big 347 Ford V8 under the hood. The high-performance V8 is backed by a five speed manual trans and a set of 3.73 gears in the rear. This car should be extremely quick and fun to drive.
