Vehicle Description

 

This car and all of parts have 1,200 miles on them with all work done by professionals.

 

 

1965 Sunbeam Tiger   Serial # B382001650LRXFE

 

It I bought the Tiger restored from a gentleman that owned and restored it for 12 yrs.   I purchased it in January of 2003.  When I purchased the car I decided to pull out the original 260, Top Loader and Dana rear end (260 and Dana go with the car). I had K&S Performance engines build a  1992 Ford 5.0 litre with 9.5 compression, Competition Cam hydraulic roller cam and valve train including 6 to 1, SS roller rockers, Edelbrock aluminum heads, 8 quart Milodon oil pan, original cobra intake manifold, ceramic Tiger headers, MSD distributor, Edelbrock water pump, 570cfm Holley carb and a K&N top and side flow air filter. The motor is feed by an electric fuel pump.  The engine builder tells me we have a true 345hp motor.  The radiator is a Griffin aluminum with twin Flexilite fans. The motor runs cool and like a clock.  The engine compartment has been smoothed out with electronics hidden for a clean for a clean look.

 

The transmission is a Tremec T5 with a billet short shift 5 spd white knob and set up for plug-in cruise control. The rear end is a shortened posi 8.8” mustang with 308’s.  Clutch, pressure plate and throw-out are all CentreForce.  The brakes are 4 wheel discs, on the front are 93 Mustang and the rears are 95 Mustang, all new brake lines, Willwood pedals and Tilton brake cylinders, separate front and rear brakes cylinders. This car stops! The interior is brand new; all parts are from Sunbeam Specialties with a chrome roll bar.  Chrome, moldings, trim pieces are all new.  The wheels are 16x7 Panasports with 205/50/16 Bridgestone rubber.

 A relocated custom panhard rod keeps everything rock solid. Rear springs have been re-arched with extra main leaf and a 5/8” sway bar. Rear track widened 1” with 1/2” removable spacers on hubs. Custom exhaust with 2 1/2” pipes with 18” MagnaFlow Stainless tips. The front suspension has been completely redone, lowered front coils, steering rack, ball joints and all bushings. Rear sway bar, panhard rod and rear springs and bushings are all completely redone with new bushings. Shocks at all four corners have been replaced and upgraded.

 

The interior is new with Le Carra leather steering wheel, the dash is done in “Maple Tigress wood” and clear coated for durability and I have the wood piece for glove box door that matches the grains in the dash exactly.  The wiring is completely redone with a new 12 circuit Painless wiring setup. Gauges are a custom order from AutoMeter, Sport Comp’s with chrome bezels to keep the authentic look.  Original seats redone with Rootes/Chyrsler, 3 point seatbelts and buckles. Chrome roll bar. New upholstered door panels, kick panels, rear area panels, new soft top. The trans tunnel and floors have been insulated with heat reflecting and sound deadening material. A perfect hard top with head liner is also included. The windshield wipers work perfect with a rebuilt motor. The heater motor is rebuilt and works perfectly; heating ducts are not hooked up.  Windshield is perfect but the car comes with an additional brand new windshield still in shipping crate.

 

The body has 6 yr old paint and has two very minor chips and one scratch, there is zero rust. The body was professionally stripped by the previous owner and the under carriage was coated for a permanent finish. I would touch up the chips and wet sand the car you would have an impeccable piece.

 

 

 

 



Vehicle Condition

 

Excellent, I keep the car garaged and covered and only drive it occasionally, 1,200 miles in two yrs. This car turns heads and gets the thumbs up every time it’s on the road.   You could not begin to duplicate this car for the reserve price and it is a true piece of Shelby history!   You will not be disappointed, you’ll love this car.

On Oct-23-04 at 09:50:07 PDT, seller added the following information:

I have just learned (10/23/04) that this car is a conversion, ouch !!   The conversion was apprantley done in the early 70's and was done with exceptional precieson. Having said that, this is a beautiful car it's done right.  It has had a lot of money spent on it by myself and previous owners that believed it was a Tiger.  I have reduced the reserve price marginally.  I would like to thank the people that helped me research the car and my apologizes to ebay's customer's, I didn't know !   

If your looking for an exciting ride that's as close to the original as it gets, this is it !!!!
