Sixteen wheeler: ’64 Sunbeam Tiger MK I
We should all know by now the story of the Sunbeam Tiger. Early cars, like today’s featured example, used a low-horsepower, 164-hp version of the Ford 260cid small-block engine, and performance was relatively mild. It was enough to stress the chassis and braking of the Alpine in stock form. Stock Tigers need to be driven with a fair degree of skill leaving much of the engine’s potential in reserve. We read an article recently advising the many ways to score a great deal on a car. One strategy is to reply to poorly written and photographed ads. Well, we’ve got one here. We do love the fact the Tiger is on skates. Makes for a cool headline. It is a California car, that we know. It is said to be a driver with some recent maintenance performed. It has the factory hardtop too. The asking price of $33,000 is squarely in condition 3 territory. and that is $38,000. So it may be a fair deal here. It is a Craigslist listing and we’ve had some unscrupulous ones at times. Let’s hope this one is real. Click here for the listing.
