The Sunbeam Tiger was the brainchild of Ian Garrad. In the early 1960s Ian convinced Rootes Group, the Manufacturer of the popular Sunbeam Alpine, to hire Carroll Shelby to transform the Alpine Roadster from what was considered a touring car into a powerful, performance driven sports car. Shelby achieved this by removing the Alpines 1.7 liter 4 cylinder motor and replacing it with a small block 4.2 liter (260 CID) V8. Production of this low-budget, high-performance sports car began in England in 1964.The 1965 Sunbeam Tiger offered here, B9470634LRXFE - JAL 560120, is a three owner car that spent the majority of its life in California owned by its second owner since 1972 until being purchased by an enthusiast in Michigan approximately in 2005. The car was acquired as a running and driving example that possessed a rock solid body, frame and core structure. It was driven and enjoyed until being treated to a complete exterior and mechanical restoration completed in 2015 and highly finished in Signal Orange over black interior. At that time the engine was professionally rebuilt using its correct 260 V8 block fortified with 289 heads, roller rockers, performance cam, electronic ignition, Offenhauser intake, correct carb, correct air cleaner, Tiger power aluminum valve covers, etc. Other highlights include: 4 speed manual transmission, authentic LAT 13 inch aluminum wheels, Good Year Eagle GT Billboard tires, wood steering wheel, tires, complete original convertible top frame, complete original convertible hard storage boot, roll bar, new seat upholstery, new interior door panels, new carpet, original dash wood, complete and original trim and bumpers, Talbot style mirrors, dual exhaust etc. The performance of this Tiger is amazing as it instantly roars to life, pulls strong in every gear, the refurbished steering and suspension ensures sure footedness over bumps and in turns and the car is just plain fast.Tiger production ceased in 1967 with less than 7,000 total units built in its four year run. The power of the Ford V8 coupled with many performance options offered by Rootes and the direction, design and influence of Carroll Shelby, makes the Sunbeam Tiger sought today from all four corners of the globe as one of Hemmings top 10 collectible vehicles. Sunbeam tigers are very unique cars and good ones are very hard to find, a car of this condition is worthy of serious consideration. Hard top included with the sale.To see over 80 photos of this car, including under carriage please visit our website www.grautogallery.com

The last of the '67 Ford Shelby GT500 EXP notchback coupes known as "Little Red" is set for restoration
Price slashed by $10,000 - making it $7,300 below recent professional appraisal! Optioned with the significantly better-performing 289 CID Ford V8, 4-speed transmission, and a factory hardtop, this Tiger is believed to be a California car since new. Bought by its latest owner in 1996, the previous owner had just rebuilt the transmission and clutch. In 1998 a new exhaust system was installed. In 2008 the car received a new walnut wood dashboard and a new electrical harness. Last October it had a full brake system overhaul ($4,200). Truly a sports roadster with performance capabilities, the Tiger is a car that was developed by former British giant Rootes in conjunction with Carrol Shelby, much like the instantly recognizable A/C Cobra. The Tigers came with either a 260ci V8, or a 289ci V8 - both sourced from Ford. A mild refresh occurred after Sunbeam built 3,700 cars, with squarer doors, a vinyl convertible boot, and added cabin ventilation. These cars are now known as Tiger Mk IAs, and 2,708 were built - this Tiger is one of those. Based on the 4-cylinder Sunbeam Alpine, a leading sportscar value in the 60s, the Sunbeam Tiger epitomizes the notion of a big engine in a small car . The Tiger featured either a Ford 260ci V8 or 289ci V8 shoe-horned into the narrow engine bay. The larger 289 CID (4.7 L) Ford engine improved the Tigers 0 60 mph time to 7.5 seconds, and increased the top speed to 122 mph - great performance for the era. Almost the entire production run of Tigers (1964-1967, 7,128 units) was shipped to the American market where it remains a popular restoration (and hot rodding) selection. The cowl-mounted serial number tag confirms this Tiger s late-1965 model year production, although it s titled as a 1966 model. In the 60 s, new cars were sometimes titled and registered based on their customer delivery date rather than their build date, a practice particularly prevalent with low-volume imports such as Sunbeam. Though perceived as a comfortable road car, with good brakes and adequate acceleration, Alpines were also raced with great success. Tigers remain both charismatic and undervalued collector cars. Ford mechanicals make them robust and easy to maintain and modern fixes are plentiful, which brings to mind the dearth of stock examples. Hard tops are very desirable. We offer this enjoyable and appreciating Sunbeam Tiger for $49,900. Note: We just had the car professionally appraised: ...has been professionally restored back to near perfect, as factory condition....very desirable option package that includes an upgraded 289 CID V-8 engine, 4-speed manual transmission, and it is in very good overall condition. The appraisal came in at $57,200. Current Hagerty Valuations of #3 Good $71,500, #2 Excellent $95,500, and #1 Concours $132,000. As much as possible we have tried to be accurate and show flaws in photos; however, research on these cars can be confusing.

1965 Sunbeam Tiger Mark 1 For Sale - Ground Up Restoration, Well Detailed, Upgrades LMC is proud to offer for sale this 1965 Sunbeam Tiger Mark I When the small British sports car called the AC Ace was outfitted with American V8 power and called the Shelby Cobra, many people were watching, employees of the Rootes Group, another British car manufacturer included. Inspired by the outcome of the Cobra, they took one of their Series III Alpine Roadsters, originally powered by a 1.7L 4-cylinder engine, and sent it right to the source, Carroll Shelby, to see if something similar could be developed. Shelby and another California based racer named Ken Miles set about fitting a small V8 into the little Alpine, in both cases the new, lightweight Ford motor was chosen and successfully put together. Both cars were then sent back to Britain for testing. The Shelby design, with its engine set far back for good balance was chosen and the Sunbeam Tiger was set to be produced by Jensen Motors Ltd. based out of Staffordshire England.

The high quality paint job was painted while apart with new trim and interior. The familiar Green, commonly referred to as ‘British Racing Green’ has wonderful depth and shine. Once you lift the hood many of the restoration highlights can be seen such as a custom Four-core Radiator, Custom Fan, balanced and blueprinted Ford 289 cubic inch motor, Aluminum Intake Manifold. Holley 650, Ceramic-coated Headers, Aluminum ‘Tiger Powered by Ford’ Valve Covers, remote Oil Filter, Dales restoration front clip with Rack and Pinion, Dales sub frame and connectors, Sway Bar, Four-wheel Wilwood Calipers, “Toploader 4-Speed Manual Transmission, Dana 44 Rear End and Stainless Steel Exhaust.
