The Sunbeam Tiger is a collaboration between the Rootes Group and Carroll Shelby. While the Roots group was known for small sedans and soft sports cars, Carroll Shelby was muscling out big V8's and highly renowned racing cars. At the time, Rootes was building the Sunbeam Alpine, but was looking for a more exciting and appealing car for the blossoming American youth and performance sports car market. With a British body and American engine and driveline, Carroll Shelby's Cobra was the inspiration behind the Sunbeam Tiger. Two prototype cars were built using Shelby motors and driveline components with Sunbeam Alpine shells. Lorde Roots test drove the cars and immediately approved the project with Jensen Motors in England assembling the cars. The Tiger used a 164 horsepower version of Fords 260-ci small block engine. The combination of light weight and more power from a V8 equalled performance that far exceeded that of the Alpine. This Sunbeam Tiger in particular is a California car that has been restored to perfection. The car is a numbers matching example complete with included documents. It is believed to be one of only four Sunbeam Tigers finished in black with a tan leather interior. This Sunbeam Tiger includes a Sunbeam Tiger Owners Association Certificate of Authenticity, as well as full photo documentation of the restoration done by a marque specialist in California. Don't miss your opportunity to own an appreciating asset!    Please contact Steven Sasson (212) 804-8070 or Steven@JMLegendAuto.com
