Blue Chip Hybrid: 1965 Sunbeam Tiger

Sunbeam Alpine billet aluminum

This 1965 Sunbeam Tiger is a restored example with all the features we would want, including a sharp color combo. The restoration includes nice details like an all-leather interior, wool carpeting, and a canvas top.  We don’t see many Tigers with cosmetics this impressive. Find it  here on eBay in Orlando, Florida with bidding above $25k and the reserve unmet.

Just over 7, 000 Tiger roadsters were built, and this one looks great in its deep blue paint and matching blue canvas top. The metal side molding helps elongate the short-wheelbase car visually, and just looks right . Alpines lack this trim piece, as do the Mk II Tigers. The Shelby wheels look very clean though not overly polished, and the ride height appears to be spot-on. The chrome headlight rings freak us out a bit on these early cars, but the overall level of this one’s cosmetics easily carries it.

The light grey wool carpeting and matching leather interior looks very well done and the restored factory steering wheel us awesome to see in place instead of the aftermarket items that were added to so many of these cars. The 66k miles on the clock registers on a speedometer that’s part of a set of  Jaeger gauges, all laid out nicely in the real wood instrument panel.

He left the farm as a teenager and moved to Cincinnati, Ohio in search of new opportunities. He found such an opportunity and in 1895 he moved to Cleveland, Ohio. He went to work as a sewing machine repair man for a clothing manufacturer. While attempting to repair a sewing machine he created and patented the first chemical hair straightener! He excelled at his job and news of his excellent work led to many job offers.
In 1907, he started his own firm repairing sewing...
