Classic Car Overview

Outstanding MK1A with fresh restoration to both cosmetics and all mechanicals! All factory, numbers matching drivetrain with STOA Certificate of Authenticity! Finished in factory code correct Carnival Red over Black interior possessing all original body tags! A unique chance to own a rare piece of sports car history! Representing one of only 2,706 MK1A units built! With the Rootes Group Sunbeam Alpine already positioned as a fine touring automobile in Europe, the internal sales team realized it would need more horsepower to better position the Alpine as a proper sports car to buyers worldwide. When talks with Ferrari about building a beefy 4-cylinder power plant went nowhere for Rootes, a Southern California Sunbeam-Talbot sales manager, Ian Garrad, teamed up with Carroll Shelby to build a prototype for their consideration. The result would be a product more suited for sports car enthusiasts often visiting their USA showrooms. Efforts to build a suitable sports car that could attract these young, performance-minded individuals was successful and accredited to Shelby American. It was already well known that they could shoe-horn V8 horsepower into just about anything you asked them to, so the Ford 260ci V8 was selected for its size and ample power output. It was tucked into the small English chassis with only a ""few"" refinements to the engine bay and firewall, and a ""baby Cobra"" was born with the official name, Sunbeam Tiger! The Mark IA, a revised & improved version of the original, was produced from August 1965 through February 1966 with production totaling just 2,706 units. Finished in correct Carnival Red (code 39) over textured black vinyl interior, this stunning 1966 Sunbeam Tiger Mk1A is in remarkable condition! Under the hood lies the original, matching numbers 260ci V8 engine mated to the Borg Warner T10 4-speed manual transmission gripping the ground through a 2.88 rear end! Options include chrome 13"" Cragar SS wheels with BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires, burled walnut dash, wood LL slotted 3-spoke steering wheel, leather wrapped shift handle, Jaegar instrumentation, locking center console, Girling power front disc brakes, dual Talbot style rearview mirrors, windshield washer, soft boot cover, and auxiliary hardtop! This example was said to have survived most of its early life out west in California before making its way to the East coast in September 2011 with only 62,000 actual miles on the odometer. Just prior to its departure from California, it would be authenticated by the Sunbeam Tiger Owners Association (STOA) for authenticity on September 8th, 2012. It now possesses the coveted STOA sticker under the dash along with its matching Certificate of Authenticity #955 with STOA embossed stamp. It had been cosmetically restored once already, with a color change to burgundy metallic at some point in the 1990s. It remained this way until its arrival to the St. Louis Car Museum. We ele
