The International Registry Of Sunbeam Tigers

The real Rootes 1 - a small 1900's cycle shop at Hawkhurst in Kent.  Such modest beginnings typified the first blushes of automotive history and from this one, the brothers Rootes fashioned a major British motor manufacturing firm.  At the apex of their fortunes came three short years of Sunbeam Tiger production.  The story of that brief harvest and its many permeations is the focus of this website - enjoy.
