1966 Sunbeam Tiger MK 1A at Greg Maxwell Motors, LLC in Kerrville TX
Vehicle Description
Held by the second owner from 1974-2018    Originally equipped with a 260 CI V-8 engine    Restored in the 1980s    Currently equipped with a 302 CI small-block V-8 installed in the 1980s    Aluminum intake and valve covers with hollowed-out Tiger lettering    AC air cleaner    4-barrel carburetor    Headers and dual exhaust    Trunk-mounted battery    Original 4-speed manual transmission    Original rear end    Finished in Red with Black interior and top    Blacktop boot    Wood-rimmed steering wheel and dash    Smiths instruments    Slotted alloy wheels with spinnersThe 1966 Sunbeam Tiger is a wonderful representation of taking a muscle-car engine and placing it in a sports car a trend that saw its zenith during the 1960s. The Rootes Group?the British manufacturer of the Sunbeam automotive brand?approached Carroll Shelby about installing a high-performance Ford V-8 into its mild-mannered Sunbeam Alpine as a performance-product feasibility study. Ken Miles the legendary development driver and engineer at Shelby American were put in charge of the project. Miles and the crew managed to shoehorn a Ford V-8 into the Alpine. The front-mounted distributor on the Ford engine enabled minimal encroachment into the firewall. The V-8 engine was only marginally heavier than the original cast-iron inline 4-cylinder unit giving an unexpected side benefit of nearly optimal weight distribution of 51 percent front and 49 percent rear. With three times the displacement and horsepower of the original Alpine the Tiger proved to be equally adept on both road courses and drag strips. This particular example?s second caretaker?who owned the car from 1972-2018?added some tasteful modifications that further enhanced the performance envelope while still maintaining its original character. The stock Ford 260 has been replaced with a Ford 302 CI V-8 engine that still has the iconic ribbed aluminum Tiger valve covers and AC air cleaner. The car retains its original 4-speed transmission and rear end but it has been up-fitted with exhaust headers slotted aluminum wheels with knock-off spinners dual exhaust and the relocation of the battery to the trunk area. Presented in a shimmering red exterior with a black interior featuring the classic wood-rimmed steering wheel and wood instrument panel this Sunbeam Tiger is one of only 7083 examples built during a three-year production run that end
