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.

Why is there no Threads for the Tigers on the SAAC Forums?

These cars are meant to be driven so enjoy the hell out of all of it. Not just the look of it when its all cleanCS

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.
