DESCRIPTION
Inspired by Carroll Shelby’s success in shoehorning a Ford V8 into the AC Ace to create the Cobra, British carmaker Rootes asked Shelby to perform the same trick with its Sunbeam Alpine sports car. Ford’s 260ci V8 engine was chosen, and its power was nearly double the output of the contemporary Alpine’s 1.6-liter engine. Assembled by Jensen Motors and introduced in 1964, the Tiger featured a stronger gearbox and rear axle plus rack & pinion steering. Enjoying the thrill of V8 speed and power with top-down convertible driving and remarkably smooth operation are but a few of the virtues of fine engineering and craftsmanship for which Sunbeam is renowned. An extensive, documented complete restoration with pictures – including chassis, body, paint, interior and engine rebuild – was completed on this Tiger in 2013 from a long-term (25-year) ownership. Finished in Silver Gray Metallic with Scarlet upholstery, all the brightwork, rubbers, seals and finishes are in excellent condition. As a member of the California Association of Tiger Owners (CAT), special care and attention to detail during the restoration was documented. Included is the Shop Notes manual, multiple binders (with a literal treasure trove of information), photos, receipts, spare parts and top boot in excellent condition. Freshening and miscellaneous paint repairs and mechanicals were completed in 2016, and since then the car has been in a collection with very few miles driven, other than an occasional car show.
