Attractive from any angle.  When this car was new, the Sunbeam Factory said: “we have a tremendously exciting sports car which handles extremely well and has a performance equivalent to an E-type Jaguar”.

The original Tiger prototype was built by Carroll Shelby, at the direction of Ian Garrad, Rootes group west coast sales manager.  Rootes group owned Sunbeam.

UnderFront.

The engine was rebuilt, and the rest of the mechanical items – brakes, clutch, transmission – are excellent.  The rear fender mounted gas tanks are new, and the new electric fuel pump has been relocated to  the trunk instead of the factory position over the muffler.

UnderMid.

Nice, fresh dual exhaust pipes and mufflers.
