ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Firing this Tiger up is a real treat for the ears for any petrol head, the V8 sounds awesome with an American muscle car throb. In the early years the car benefited from the popular upgrade from the 260cu V8 to the 289cu V8 Ford unit. The engine is in fine fettle with an excellent record of service and maintenance work and also benefits from a few period upgrades including a LSD and a stainless steel exhaust system.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The car comes with a period set of immaculate 13" Minilite alloys that are all shod in a recent set of 185/70/13 Yokohama tyres. After the current owner purchased the car he had some extensive work done refreshing the suspension and brakes to make sure everything was 100%. The result is a classic that drives, stops and handles like it did when new.
This series 1 Tiger was first registered in June 1965 and along with the current V5 it has copies of the old registration documents going back to the early 1980's.
There is a huge history file that shows a considerable amount of recent expenditure including a bill from last December for £6,500. The brief for this expenditure was to go through the car with a find toothcomb to make sure everything was in working order, replace all required suspension and braking components, new exhaust and manifolds and to supply and fit a limited slip differential.
Another folder is full of all the old history that shows a great maintenance record going right back to the mid 80's, there are also lots of MOT certificates over this period. Also included are the original owners brochures, handbook and lots of Sunbeam owners club literature. Another nice addition to the file are some old photographs showing the cars pre painted excellent condition.
