"I would like to add my car to the page. It started out as a 64 Alpine and has been modified slightly. Under the hood is a 351 Windsor which is quite capable of moving it along. It has been named "The Spirit of Lister" as that's how it was built and not an exact replica." Chuck Ingram.

"While Production car racing in the mid-late `70s was not as wild as the GT classes that followed, the cars had to be highly modified to be competitive. Most puristas do not appreciate changes, but then if one wanted to play in SCCA Nationals with the Porsche and Datsun/Nissan factory teams, they were necessary. In addition to the wide body and wheels, it had dry sump oiling, a Ford 9 inch disc brake rear (easier to change gears than the Dana/Salisbury) a killer engine and suspension mods. The car still holds the SCCA C Production lap record for the Watkins Glen short course (Keith Bauer set it the year following his purchase of the car from me)(of course C Production evolved into GT-2 in the early `80s so it cannot be broken)."

July 1976: Blackhawk Farms Raceway, Northern Illinois.

Ted Stewart in his Series IV Alpine (80K) backing down a steep gravel North Georgia mountain road.
The annual Sunbeams of the South meet (132K) in Florida was forecasted to be hit by hurricane Georges that day. We decided not to go. Instead we took a day trip through the North Georgia mountains. From right to left Bill Cartus Mk1, Ted Stewart Series IV, Robert Jackson Mk1a, and Chris Mottram Mk1a.
Tigers in the woods. (110K)  The gravel road was too steep to make it all the way up the mountain. Some lost traction, some suffered fuel starvation, one bounced a plug wire loose. We had to walk the rest of the way to the top where there was a Honda Civic (Front wheel drive - Argh!)
Tiger on the prowl. Robert Jackson (MK1a) (96K) descends a North Georgia Mountain Road.

 


Dick Barker and son Brad in their White Mk 1A, B382001472, (34K) at TU in Bakersfield.   Dick bought this car new in 1967 from a Dodge dealer in San Diego. In 1972 it won the San Diego autocross class championship.

This is the first of 3 Tiger coupes built for Le Mans in 1964. Used primarily for testing and development, B9499999 is sometimes referred to as the Le Mans "mule." When asked if "The Coupe" could compete at Tigers United XXIII for the Lord Rootes Trophy, Steve Sage said, "Yes, if that's not a Tiger, I don't know what is." As it turned out, the car was ineligible because it did not venture out for the rally, but it did place first in the concours (stock), and also won the Howie Schoenfeld Trophy. Most recently, it won both the "Best of Marque" and the "Peoples' Choice" awards at the 1998 San Diego British Car Days.

Here are a few photos of David Kirschner's '67 Tiger (#2589) and the real thing. Actually, the "real thing" is a full size animatronic tiger built by Jim Henson's Creature Shop for the film "Dr. Dolittle" with Eddie Murphy due out Spring of '98. (David is the sound mixer on the film.) He took the liberty of "airbrushing" out the puppeteers and mechanisms that control the beast.

The photos were originally taken with a digital camera and retouched with Photoshop. The are in the JPEG format.

While surfing the net, I found the following screen captured image of Maxwell Smart's Red 1965 Sunbeam Tiger with the following text:

What kind of car did Max drive?

Max drove three different cars in the opens. The first was a red 1965 Sunbeam Tiger, driven in the open in the first two seasons. For the next two seasons, Max drove a blue VW Karman Ghia. In the final season, Max drove a gold, 1969 Opel GT. Interestingly enough, Max's Opel also appeared in the movie "Stripes." A thousand thanks to Charles Goin, President of the Mid-Atlantic Opel Association, for the car information.

Check out The Get Smart Home Page to see the site I got this information from.

"Actually he had 4 different cars in the openings. The three you mention are correct, but in the very first show of the series which was shot in black and white he drove a ferrari 250GT California. It takes an elderly TV comedy fan who loves interesting cars to come up with this one!" Submitted by Jim Malloy

This is a (31K) picture of a Tiger

Here is a Mk2 Tiger
(45K) front corner shot (car unknown) taken at Suni 89. It looks almost like and artist painting and would make a great wallpaper. Note the reflections of people walking by in the hood. The paint and chrome is immaculate. One of my favorites.

The infamous three-seat Tiger. (56K)

The picture is from Modern Motoring and Travel, 10/66

The caption reads: "This highly modified Sunbeam Tiger has been attracting quite a few envious glances from the motoring public in Halifax, Yorkshire. It was made for an esthusiastic Tiger owner Mr. Raymond Siddall, who wanted the Tiger's exceptional performance with plenty of head room in the rear.

The conversion was carried out to Mr. Siddall's own specifications by Woodall Nicholson, the old-established coach builders in Halifax, and it transformed the 125 m.p.h. V8 Tiger into a luxurious three seater with plenty of head and leg room for the rear seat passenger."
