"My Tiger is now sold...many thanks for placing the advert, it is by far & away the best place to buy or sell one of these great cars."
SOLD: MK1. B9473684 HRO FE. Only 2 owners & 59,000 mile from new. ORO 7D finished in White, registered March 1966 was supplied by Blizzard Motors of Rickmansworth to a Mr. Fred Wooster. Fred kept the car till 1975 when he sold it to the 2nd and last owner Bob Vickers. Original log book and old V5 confirm this. Bob used the car for 4 years until 1979 and at 59,000 miles it was stripped down and all parts boxed for 35 years. Bob who sadly passed away this year had another Tiger he used and never rebuilt this Tiger. I purchased it 2 years ago intending to rebuild the car but I have not done so. So with much regret I have decided to sell the car. ORO 7D is a genuine Sunbeam Tiger known to the owners club. Blasted and shell found to be rust free apart from a bit of filler work. Suspension /axle blasted and ready for painting. A numbers matching car with engine /gearbox/axle etc present. Can be rebuilt using 90% of the original parts (I have steering wheel, header tank, fan shroud, air filter housing etc) for authenticity if you want to retain factory parts or make a fantastic base for a personalised car with a hot motor etc. Remember no welding or panels needed!! Gallery Price firm £27,000. Finished it will be a £55000+ car. To view the car in West Sussex please call Martin Pester 07711 123800 or 01243 555595
FOR SALE: MK1A. B382001836 LRX FE. JAL661837. Imported from USA where it had been converted to a sprint car by the removal of some interior and some minor bodywork changes including an extended valance. Since returned to standard body spec with new valance plus a Chris Draycott wing and front slam panel. Car is currently in bare metal, after stripping by SPL, now requires final paint prep before respraying. Due to a life in USA the body is in excellent condition; sills, box sections and wheelarches are perfect. Absence of paint, underseal, filler etc (just coated with heavy oil) means there can be no nasty surprises! As with all Tigers, the holes are drilled and threaded at the factory for the changeover to RHD if required. The Tiger comes with a 6 bolt 289 although a 260 could be available if preferred. It retains its original gearbox and rear axle; the numbers on both cross check with the chassis number in the Tiger build records. This is a rare chance to buy an authenticated, genuine Tiger poised at a condition where welding marathons aren't required, yet providing the opportunity to build a car entirely to your specification. £25,000. Lots of photos here: https://www.icloud.com/sharedalbum/#B04JtdOXmG9MIG9 I bought the car to convert to historic race specification but it is now available due to a change in plans.
