If you're a fan of vintage Japanese cars, be sure to check out Nissan's online heritage site. There are tons of vintage Nissan pics and specs going all the way back to the 1920s. Each featured car or truck has relevant specs and a little "detail" tab that gives some background on that specific car.
The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.
Classic Car Overview
The 1965 Tiger offered here was purchased new by the current owners uncle on June 23, 1965 from Higgins Motors in Elkhart, Indiana. It was owned by the original owner for 50 years and then passed to the current(2nd) owner. In the early 1970s the factory 260 V8 was removed and bored out in the hopes of making the car faster. During the process the block was damaged too far and a 289 block was used in its place and all the 260 parts were built into the block. This is an excellent running and handling car and is sure to please.
Tiger production ceased in 1967 roughly 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.
