THIS A GENUINE 'HOLY GRAIL OF RESTORATIONS' ONE OF ONLY 2706 BUILT A RARE TAX AND MOT EXEMPT MATCHING NUMBERS (1966) SUNBEAM TIGER 260 V8 MK1A CONVERTIBLE LHD 4 SPEED MANUAL IN FACTORY FOREST GREEN (ORIGINAL PAINT) WITH FACTORY BLACK INTERIOR! THE MOST SOUGHT AFTER PROJECT CAR BASE YOU COULD FIND! THIS IS AN IDEAL INVESTMENT AND YOU WONT FIND MUCH MORE ORIGINAL ONES FOR THIS MONEY!

THIS IS A ONE FAMILY OWNED CAR FROM NEW CAR! BOUGHT NEW IN CALIFORNIA IN 1966 AND DRIVEN AND USED UNTIL 1977 WHEN THE MALE OWNER SADLY PASSED AWAY, HIS WIFE DID NOT DRIVE IT AND IT WAS PARKED IN THE BACKYARD ALL THIS TIME! THE CAR WAS UNTOUCHED APART FROM A POT OF PAINT SPILLED ON IT! MILES SHOWING AS 46784 AND THERE IS NO REASON FOR IT NOT TO BE GENUINE!

A PERFECT 90% RUST FREE PROJECT! THIS IS A GREAT SOLID BASE FOR ANY WOULD BE TIGER FAN/RESTORER OR PROSPECTIVE OWNER! GREAT TO USE IN THE SUMMER FOR SHOWS OR EVEN DAILY DRIVING! CAR HAS RECENTLY BEEN IMPORTED FROM DRY STATE CALIFORNIA WHERE IT WAS PURCHASED PERSONALLY FROM THE REGISTERED OWNER! NOT USED SINCE 1977!

​THE CAR IS IN COMPLETE UNTOUCHED CONDITION WITH ORIGINAL V8 ENGINE AND MANUAL 4 SPEED GEARBOX. ENGINE TURNS FREELY, REST OF THE RUNNING GEAR LOOKS TO BE IN COMPLETE CONDITION BUT UNTESTED, BRAKES NEED ATTENTION. THE CAR IS 90% RUST FREE. THE BODY IS STRAIGHT WITH AMAZINGLY ALL THE ORIGINAL PANELS/BADGES/CHROME ETC, THE RUST IS MOSTLY CONFINED TO THE BATTERY AREA IN THE BOOT FLOOR AND THE DRIVERS FLOOR PAN SECTION (MOSTLY THE REAR) ONLY DUE TO HAVING LEAVES LEFT IN IT, NO WELDING DONE THE REST OF CAR LOOKS TO BE SOLID. THE REST OF THE FLOORS/SILLS/ARCHES/BOOT ARE ALL EXCELLENT AND IN THE ORIGINAL PAINT (SEE 50+ PICS IN THE YOUTUBE SLIDESHOW).. THE CAR INTERIOR IS ROUGH BUT ALL ORIGINAL AND RESTORABLE ETC, ALL GLASS IS GOOD, HOOD FRAME IS THERE BUT NO MATERIAL ETC, NICE SET OF 5 FACTORY WHEELS/JACK ETC, ALL IN ALL A GREAT RARE BASE TO START!

​I CANNOT STRESS WHAT A GREAT PROJECT THIS WOULD BE FOR ANY TIGER FAN AND YOU WOULD HAVE A GREAT INVESTMENT WITH A SOME WORK! YOU WONT FIND ANY AS ORIGINAL IN THIS CONDITION TO RESTORE!

​SADLY THE KEYS WERE LOST, BUT WE DO HAVE THE CLEAN CALIFORNIA USA TITLE DOC (IN ORIGINAL OWNERS NAME) AND NOVA PAPERWORK TO REGISTER! CAR IS TAXES PAID AND READY TO REGISTER. SPEEDO SHOWS 46K TAKEN AS CORRECT DUE TO THE LACK OF USE!.. JUST £55 TO REGISTER WITH NO TAX OR MOT REQUIRED!
