Blue Chip Hybrid: 1965 Sunbeam Tiger

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.

Got it in 68 with 12kmi.I put an Abarth exhaust onit.It had a hardtop for the winter and was warm and dry.In the spring I would take it off and drive with a tonneau cover so only the drivers area was open with the top down.The heater on full blast and I was comfortable.I put in a Blaupunkt AM/FM which was a bog deal back then.I has a bookshelf speaker for the rear seat.I would tune the radio in FM between stations and it would pick up the ignition system.I would accelerate with just the front speaker then at 4krpm turn on the rear speaker.It sounded like a jet taking off,especialy when I was stoned.
