Extremly Rare Sunbeam Tiger MKII. For Sale (1967)

MKII B382100631 RRO 3rd to last chassis number. Jensen build completion date 27th June 1967. 1st Registered 1st July 1967. Registration No. NLL 218E. Matching factory numbers: JAL700532-3rd last body. Installed engine 302cui with original 289 No: 2148 A22KK available. Complete to standard specification. The MKII is rare and this one particularly so due to being 1 of only 5 right hand drive examples built at the end of production in late June 1967. It is also desirable due to its history and provenance. I acquired the Tiger on the 9th January 1970, shortly after production ceased; hence it has been in my ownership for 43 years. It has a Jensen build completion date of 27th June 1967 and was 1st registered 4 days later on 1st July 1067 The first owner was from surrey. The Tiger spent its first year in Germany due to the owners work and was looked after by Rootes Autos (Deutschland) GMBH in Dusseldorf. I believe the Tiger was at first destined to be built to LRO FE specification- for export to a European country, which fits with the first owners work plans in Germany. However, prior to Rootes Group delivering the Tiger the order was modified to RHD specification and by this the chassis plate was over stamped to acknowledge the change of specification to RRO FE. the Tiger was then sold in November 1968 to its 2nd owner in Scotland. I then purchased the vehicle on the 9th January 1970. The Tiger was used by me as everyday transport until the 31st May 1974 when taken off the road for an extensive restoration. Completed four years later and re-licensed 1st May 1978 with mileage of 86163. Where possible new components were fitted otherwise existing ones were refurbished. Restored in my spare time with total man hours logged of 1500. The entire project was photographed and the record of the restoration is available for inspection. From 1992, the Tiger was put away in dry condition for 18years; regularly started and checked but only brought out for promotional purposes. Exhibited at various classic car shows, featured in prestigious articles in late 1970's and used to promote Chrysler UK with Miss MOPAR 1978, I understand only 16 right hand drive were sold in 1967/1968. Of these 6 were destined for Metropolitan Police, 5 (of6) LRX FE USA exports Tigers were obtained by Hartwell's of Bournemouth and converted by the Rootes Group distributors to RHD prior to sale in February 1968 and 5 private sales to favoured Rootes Group distributors and customers. Current mileage 91,228,MOT'd.
