Intresting Reading about Sunbeam Tigers
« on: December 18, 2018, 01:05:50 PM »
I know that a number of members and guest here have Sunbeam Tigers or at least know about them so I thought that I'd share this with you.

Thanks for posting.

Tim (Publisher at Classic Motorsports) is definitely a Shelby fan... he does seem to prefer "more power". Their Tiger sports a strong 331 stroker, while the GT350 has that beastly 363.

Tim owns a 67 GT350 that has a newer Ford Racing crate motor in it.  I haven't seen him in a few years but at the time it was an old looking original Shelby from the outside (including a little rust) but mechanically it was completely restored.  It was a great car!

I have an original Sunbeam Tiger Performance service guide/catalog. I thought about making some copies available being it is loose-leaf and easy to copy.
