1965 Sunbeam Tiger MkI 4.2; 1965 Sunbeam Tiger MkI 4.2 finished in Deep Ocean Blue with contrasting Burgundy hide interior. It would appear from the history file that this car was the subject of a comprehensive restoration between 1993 and 1996, since when it has covered just 2,950 miles. The car formed part of a private collection between 1989 and 2011 and the steady progression of mileages shown on the 23 Mot certificates within the file show that on many of the intervening years, the only mileage covered was in sending the car for its annual test. (No longer applicable). Derived from the Sunbeam Alpine which was a very soft and pleasant to drive touring car, the Tiger was the brainchild of the Rootes Group competitions manager Ian Gerald who considered that a proper sports car was required to complete the Sunbeam range. Assistance was enlisted from Carol Shelby, the mastermind behind the much renowned AC Cobra and the Ford 260 small block as fitted to the first of the Shelby Cobra's wasshoehorned into the Alpine together with suspension and brake upgrades and the Sunbeam Tiger was born. Production of the Tiger was sub-contracted to Jensen Motors Limited of West Bromwich who were well versed in making one-off prototypes and this association proved to be invaluable. A photograph of this particular Tiger (74 VYC) was used on the cover of Michael Taylors very informative book on Tigers, considered to be the Bible for Tiger owners. Although this is an older restoration with a nice degree of patination, it has remained in splendid condition since being restored. Offered for sale and sensibly priced at 59,950

The Sunbeam Tiger was conceived in the West Coast of the USA and inspired by the success of the AC Cobra - the result of inserting a small-block American V8 engine into the nose of the British AC Ace. Rootes American Motors Inc. saw the potential for performing a similar operation on the stylish four-cylinder Sunbeam Alpine. Preliminary research suggested that the engine used to produce the Cobra - Ford's 4.3-litre (260ci) 'Windsor' unit - would be the appropriate powerplant, and a prototype was commissioned from Carroll Shelby, the man behind the Cobra project. Unveiled at the April 1964 New York Motor Show, the resultant Tiger incorporated uprated steering, suspension and brake assemblies but retained the Alpine's basic layout and sheetmetal. With a quoted 164bhp/258lbft on tap, the newcomer was reputedly capable of 0-60mph in under eight seconds and 120mph. Distinguishing itself on race tracks and rally stages alike, the model accounted for some 7,085 sales from 1964-1967. According to thevendor, this handsome 'home market' Tiger has been subject to 'a sixteen-year restoration project costing more than I would wish to total'. More powerful than the 260ci (4.3 litre) unit it supplanted, a fresh 302ci (5 litre) V8 engine is now installed aboard 'CDN 111C' sports an Edelbrock alloy inlet manifold, four-barrel Holley carburettor, 'Cobra Powered by Ford' rocker covers and a stainless-steel exhaust complete with gas flowed headers. Further benefiting from new soft- and hardtop roofs, the two-seater rides on Minilite-style alloys shod with new tyres and wears discreet '302' (rather than '260') badging. In possession of a valid MOT certificate up until July this year when the vendor chose to take advantage of its exempt status, the Sunbeam is described by him as 'very good' with regards to its engine, manual gearbox, bodywork, paintwork and interior trim. Offered for sale with V5C Registration Document and a collection of invoices.
