1966 SUNBEAM TIGER Mk1a. ROAD LEGAL FULL RACE PREPARED CAR.  MEDITERRANEAN BLUE. £54,995.


This is a genuine 1966 Sunbeam Tiger that is very well known to the Tiger community. It has been owned, prepared and successfully raced both here and in Europe for 20 years by the current owner. Whilst the car is a fully prepared race car it has always remained road legal for the odd exciting road trip now and then. The car is on the button and ready to go. Could easily be put back to a road only car. Below are the basic details of the car and more detail can be discussed with the owner. The car can be viewed at the preparation centre near Birmingham.
