The Sunbeam Alpine seemed like a good candidate. It had been launched by the Rootes Group in 1959 to compete with the MGA, Austin-Healey, and Triumph TR3. Norman Garrad, who headed the Rootes competition department, had been urged by Formula One World Champion Jack Brabham to develop a Sunbeam Cobra.

Non original 302 ci V-8 that has been modified with programmable Edelbrock electronic fuel injection, Summit competition roller cam and MSD H.E.I. ignition, Hurst competition shifter on Mustang 4 speed transmission, 4 wheel disc brakes, Koni shocks and free flow tubular headers, locked rear axle along with Nitto 450x50 R15 tires mounted on progressive rims that bite to the road. From the research we have done, prior owners statement and the 382000372 VIN number, all indications show this to a 65-66 Tiger 1-A series of 1 of 2706 originally built with 164 hp 260 ci V-8. In its present state this car far exceeds the original version in both power and handling. The body is extremely solid with no rust or collision issues. The wooden dash panel with original padding is in excellent conditions. Seats and door panels are redone in correct style as is folding top. The chrome bumpers and trim appear original. Miles showing are 45,365 and believed correct. A stock 260 ci motor and some original parts can be included if next owner desires. A rare Carroll Shelby creation that is a step up from its hot factory production level. Not for the faint of heart.

Here is an opportunity to own a highly collectible and sought-after European classic sports car. This original Tiger has benefited from a professional restoration. During the course of the restoration the car was repainted, the upholstery was refitted, seats restored, all new panels, new carpet, restored top bows with new convertible top, with britework re-chromed as needed. Prior to it's restoration, the Tiger was a very solid and original example that had the factory undercoat on the undercarriage. These cars are rapidly appreciating in value, and are becoming increasingly harder to find - especially in this condition. This Tiger stands as a wonderful example that is sure to please enthusiasts and collectors alike!
